Re: X and O game with toilet paper

Sawmiller, if we mount your X and O game in the Outhouse I made back in 2014 could we sell it as a "Toilet Arcade? :wink:

Re: EZ Prism Star modeling

Mapping the vectors is an easy one click operation other than selecting the model then selecting the vectors to be mapped onto it. The Vectric software math-magic behind the operation boggles my feeble mind. :D

Re: Aztec Calendar

So can someone please educate me? I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but why are people so interested in Aztec calenders? Because they are impressive when mapped onto a guitar top panel, :D https://twitter.com/vectric/status/1135561658066198528 https://www.cbgitty.com/news/build-cbgs-that...

Re: Aztec Calendar

My website's Downloads folder has the files for Aztec Calendars. In Aspire, you can create a domed shape of your choice, then map the vectors onto the dome with one click of the appropriate button and generate the results you are looking for. There are Mayan Haab files there also, both 2d and 3d mod...

Re: Layered elliptical box

I have been using bamboo skewers for dowel material for a few small projects with success. Some packs of them are less round than others, so I looked for a pack that were consistently round that came from another source. One pack has lasted a few years since I don't use them very often. Thanks in re...

Re: artificial stone

There are many variations of stone looking Corian to chose from. There are other companies making similar products as well. It cuts cleanly and I have made soap dishes and 1911A pistol grips from scrap pieces of it.

Re: Love Sign

I cut one yesterday and will be working on it occasionally over a few days. The heart is about 10.6" by 9.8". Simulation image of it is attached.

When finished I'll post the results in another thread in this forum.

Re: Love Sign

I also give thanks for the file.

I have plans to cut one today on red oak, but it will be a significantly different single side version, using just the LOVE letters. I will post the results when it's finished, and will also post the Aspire V10 .crv3d file.

Re: Scroll or rope pattern

I played with the rope demo 1.crv3d file again this evening and was able to make it work for a circle and for the arc. Also figured out how the percentage value is used to adjust the spacing of the rope segments. Now to make some fancy Celtic knot rope weaves (or cane weaves) for future Paradise Box...
