Tool path optimization

Hello! is there a way to force aspire to finish a 3d finish cut before moving on to the next cut without making them all individual? The problem I'm having is that it will do half a carving and then start on the second, by the time it gets back to the first one the wood has moved slightly which leav...

Re: max file size for aspire

You may need more ram, then again you may not. I am using a old server with 8 gigs ram and 2 processors and you can still load it down, Most of the time its because I do something crazy like take a picture of a slice of wood and tell it to trace vectors over the tree rings:) if you hit ctrl alt del ...

Re: Boundy vector offset limitation

Thanks for the advice I had not thought of doing it that way, What I have been doing is to draw a vector over that straight areas and cutting on the line to flatten it back out, but that is causing some fuzzing on top that is difficult to sand out.

Re: Error code 502

You may have a decaying hard drive, this causes file corruption if your computer scans itself every time it starts up then that is definitely what is wrong

Boundy vector offset limitation

Hello I have an interesting problem, I am cutting a 3d model that tapers down on two sides and is straight up and down on the other two sides, I must have a boundary vector offset so that the down curving parts will cut properly and not leave any flat areas at the bottom, the problem is that this ca...

Re: Vector boundry problems

How are you generating the boundary vectors? Are you simply tracing them? No these were generated using the boundary vector trace tool If so, you will get that kind of discrepancy. It looks like the model may be the Horse Head Corbel model from Vectorart3D? If so, try downloading the EPS outline fr...

Re: Vector boundry problems

Wow I didn't expect to get help from someone famous! I hope I can spend some time with your standing wave program soon. I think the crv3d file has the models in it so I better not upload it. Here are some pictures the green in the bottom line is from the left horse the pink line is from the right ho...

Vector boundry problems

Hy I am making some shelf brackets, these are composed of two 3d models that are glued back to back. I have been having a terrible time trying to get everything aligned and glued when I noticed that my vector boundaries were not the same on my left and right models even though they were only mirrore...

Re: Roughing bit ?

Thanks I though that might be the case, It is capable of doing plunge cuts its just not good at it.

Roughing bit ?

Hello I recently purchased a 3/8 3 flute roughing bit off ebay for about 20 bucks. This thing hogs material like nothing else and has none of the burning problems of my 4 flute roughing bit - but it does not like plunge cuts much on the 3d roughing passes. Is there anyway to mitigate this problem?
