Re: Creating a model plane canopy blank.

Hi, I have been making plugs for my current rc model airplane. I use Aspire 8.5 to cut the plugs but have found that I need another CAD package to build truly detailed models. Aspire is a great CAM software package. I am looking for others who build rc airplanes with Aspire/ Cut3D where we could hel...

Cursor Icon meanings?

Hi,
Where can I find out about the different cursor icon meanings? When I am snapping to an existing vector the cursor will change. What are the different meanings?
Thanks

New to XPS foam cutting

Hi, I am new to cutting Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) foam. It is the pink foam at home depot. I am going to cut rc airplane parts from it. I have the 2 inch foam. My questions for guys who have cut this stuff: 1. What is the best router bit to use? I have purchased a foam cutting bit from Tooltoday. H...

Re: Possible bug?

Well, one thing for sure, since this is such a huge issue given a full sheet of unique parts requiring dog bones, I would lay dollars to donuts the next time the dogbones will get added before heading over to the toolpath window. yeah, that is called a "work around". When Vectric adds the feature t...

Re: Possible bug?

If one looks closely at Aspire (and VCarve) it becomes apparent that a certain "flow" of work is intended. The program starts with the left hand window visible. This allows creating and editing of geometry. Adding dog bones falls into this category. Once all the geometry is massaged to the users sa...

Re: Possible bug?

F, You probably already know this, But.... If you Proto ONE and then toolpath it exactly( Including tabs!), then when you linear array/nest... the tabs are automatically copied! Rather than Dogbone all and tab all, just make 1 all the way and THEN multiply them? scott Yes, but all of my parts are u...

Re: Possible bug?

I am sure with all of the smart people at Vectric they can fix the problem? If you are building prototypes and make slight changes to geometry, fixing moved tabs can be a pain. Unless the geometry where the tab is placed has changed the tab should not move. In object oriented programming the tabs s...

Re: Possible bug?

I would not call it a bug. Adding dog bones changes the geometry. How tabs are referenced in software has never been an easy thing. I cannot speak for Vectric, obviously, since I do not write their software. But back in the day, a cutting path is an ordered list. Each line, arc has a reference or i...

Re: Possible bug?

Wouldn't one normally add the dogbones prior to the toolpath operations? I would consider your case of adding tabs after tabs an unusual case of getting processes slightly out of order. Unless I am missing something, that is. What! It should not make any difference the order you perform the operati...

Re: Possible bug?

I fail to see why it is a pain to manually move a few tabs. However, in the first pic you have 5 tabs an in the second you only have 3 so something must have been change in the tab setup. Really! the sample was just to show the problem. If you had a 4 x 8 foot sheet of shapes to "re-tab" you would ...

Possible bug?

Hi, I noticed this the other day and it happen to me again. Using Aspire 8. I have a shape to be cut with a 2D profile tool-path. I have placed tabs on the shape to keep it in the sheet while cutting. I decided that some of the internal corners need a T-bone fillet. After I apply the fillets my tabs...
