Re: lost endmills in tool database

OK.........gremlins are out and about.

I rebooted my machine two times...........now they are back and appear normal.

Mayhaps I have a hard drive issue.

lost endmills in tool database

Help,

I have a project I need to jump on, but my tool database lost all my endmills. Ballnose, vbit etc are all there.

I can't seem to add anything to endmills either.
I noticed this after going to the lastest update.

I"m lost.

Re: 30 degree bit inlays

Hi Dave, Haven't tried your technique yet. Sounds interesting. I just need deep inlays for the cutting boards. .1" or even .2" is a bit thin and would probably wear from the knives in time. True, not all of the V- carved inlays do are .4" deep using my way but it does allow for more wear over all. I...

30 degree bit inlays

Hi all, I just started using a 30 degree bit for V-carve inlays. Works so well. I carve .4" deep for the female and use .3 start depth and .1" flat depth for the male inlay. So far.....the inlays have been perfect and thick. So much easier than the 60 or 90 degree bits........at least it seems that ...

Re: Aspire V8.0 released for existing Aspire Customers

I haven't received any email about the upgrade to Aspire 8.0.

I've emailed support@ but so far nothing.

my emails are

pmkllc@comcast.net
pkarlowitz@comcast.net

certainly one of them will work.

Any help would be appreciated.

Aspire 4 Extrude and weave

hi all,

Well, I guess I'm just stupid.

I can't seem to get the Extrude and weave to work. I create my pattern, create a cross section, and go through the extrude and weave menu and set the items.......but it won't let me "apply" them.

Any ideas??

Re: computer used for Aspire 3.09

Thanks for the answers. yes, a small bit for only a 12" project, but it has very fine detail that a .125 just can't get to. Hum....it just occured to me........I do use a 4% step over. I bet that has something to do with my long calc times. It really cuts down on any sanding cleanup to be done after...

Re: Aspire V3 Released

For some reason I don't seem to be getting the email everyone else is getting about the upgrade.

I've checked my system and can find nothing wrong.

Could someone check to see if in fact an email went out to me
pmk digital imaging.

Thanks.

Re: Aspire V3 Released

Hi, Hope I haven't missed a post that explained the schedule of email notification etc about Aspire 3.0 being available. I know I purchased Aspire 2.5 After the Nov 2009 date. Have the emails been sent? or are they in progress? If they have already gone out...........I somehow got left out :(. Can y...
