Re: Sign up for our 2020 Worldwide Virtual User Group Meeting

Stephanie, I realize the agenda probably isn't finalized, but do you have the hours and time zone?

Thanks,
Roy

Re: 10.5 is COMING SOON - Watch this space

Aspire 10.5 is available for download at V&CO. It was a slow download for me, also size was 300+ MB rather than the ~245 MB stated at the link (I'm guessing that maybe the stated size was for an earlier version that quickly got updated). Woot!

Re: Version 10 Hints

I upgraded from VCarve 6(?) to Aspire 8 shortly after 8 came out. I skipped 9 as I wasn't doing much at that time and I didn't see enough benefit in it for me personally to make that upgrade. However, will definitely be upgrading to 10 as soon as it comes out. On the tool video, who noticed that the...

Re: Calling moulding toolpath from a gadget

Adrian,

A second thanks for the extension renaming tip. I was having the exact same problem as RayHari, trying to find documentation compatible with Aspire 8.x.

Re: ASPIRE CAMP 2018 AT MCGREWS

Do you need any help setting up the day prior? I'm not sure what time I can get into town, present plan is to include some camping on the way, perhaps in the Smoky Mtns, but guessing that I could be there by early or mid afternoon to lend a strong(ish) back and weak mind.

Re: Aspire v9.5 wishlist

- Python scripting capabilities. Because a lot of other 3D software packages are using Python as scripting engine will be more easier to learn one language to rule them all. I have python scripting capabilities in Fusion360, Rhino3D, Blender. Aspire and Sketchup... out of luck. This would be a very...

You might also try running a virtual machine within VirtualBox (free).

Re: Simple Step Clamps

The stepped block is a great idea, Fred. Thanks for sharing. I already use wooden fingers, but at an angle.

I bought a bunch of 5/16" nylon bolts and have embedded inserts in my spoil board that I use with my wood hold downs, so nothing steel to run into if things go majorly awry.

Re: Linux systems

Norman, For the first couple years after getting into CNCing, I ran VCP 6.x from within a Windows XP virtual machine. I also had a separate machine running EMC2 (LinuxCNC's previous name), however, that machine was way too old (can't remember if it was a Pentium 1, 2, or maybe 3) and hardware limite...

Re: Brass Numerals

Not sure I understand the exact situation. If the numerals are already cut, could you make a tight pocket in some material and place a couple holddowns where they wouldn't interfere? If you are cutting the numerals, how about some double-stick tape on the sheet?

Re: Carved frame

That is a wonderful painting (print?) and the frame does so much to enhance it.
