Re: From my clip art library

Hi Chris, Thanks for the thought. Of course I would consider any referrals but my back log gets pretty full as far as modeling goes. I can't make any promises that I could schedule extra work. This may be a good time to bring up pricing. I know this has been discussed for machine time but I haven't...

Re: From my clip art library

Chris, Thanks so much. I have been following your work ever since I joined the forum and have been most impressed. Just the shear volume displayed on your sight is a testament to your abilities and popularity. I have sold a few models but prefer to help others with their models. In turn it helps wi...

Re: From my clip art library

I'm a little late but I wanted to throw my $.02 in. Why Thanks Martin. I'm not saying these models where easy by any stretch. I purchased aspire in 2010 and have been modeling with it ever since. I do have other software but for good reason I use Aspire. The first thing I Modeled was a Chief Anchor....

Re: navy plaques

I'm looking for the same SeeBee image. I would make one but I'm still new to this. Anyone have or know where to find one?? Thanks. I've got a couple of SeaBee units that contain the SeaBee on my site. You could purchase one and cut the bee out or if you're looking for a particular military emblem y...

Me too, a cnc tattoo machine. Load a picture, stick a body part in the machine and let it rip! Sounds horrific but someone will probably do it.

Re: other software

One of my customers tried to use it with one of my models but the only format in common was stl and there's a low triangle limit on what it can import so it looked really bad. I've installed it myself but haven't looked at it yet, just no spare time at all lately.

Re: Imperial Metric tools

Vectric doesn't care if it is mm or inches. All that matters is that you use the same units throughout the process. A 3 mm end mill is .118 thousandths. If you are doing work in mm, then the end mill is 3mm. Use feeds and speeds in metric units If you are working in inches, then the end mill is .11...

Re: Vectric products for OSX and Linux?

The advantage of VM on any platform is you don't have to have anything to do with Microsoft and Windoze. To answer the question, Parallels or VM Fusion will run Vcarve in Unity mode. It will make Vcarve look and appear like an OSX app without you even knowing Windoze exists. Sorry, but Parallels an...

Re: Vectric products for OSX and Linux?

Thread title was not my question, I'm not the OP. I answered the question the same way you did, not enough money in it to make it worth while.

I think you're wrong about the 5 axis milling, but that's your prerogative. Time will tell.

Re: Vectric products for OSX and Linux?

I don't see Aspire as it's currently constituted staying relevant for many more years. Why, when there's no competition? V Carve Pro has now been around for 10 years, and there's still no real competitor out there. There are plenty of features that Aspire and V-Carve are lacking, if Vectric wants t...

Re: Vectric products for OSX and Linux?

I'm just curious why one would prefer running vcarve in linux and not Windows? I'm not aware of any advantage to that. Maybe you can educate me. :D There is no advantage to it, only disadvantage. Aspire is now the only software I use that I can't replace with a linux native ap. Eventually a native ...

Re: Vectric products for OSX and Linux?

I doubt there'd be enough sales to warrant the investment. I'm a linux user but there's two programs I need windows for so I use virtualbox running windows 7.

Re: To sweep or not to sweep...

I have a sign project that required a Compass Star in the center. I tried to use CREATE SHAPE FROM VECTORS... and got kind of an inverse of what I need. So. I am thinking that breaking up the star vectors and using a two rail sweep might be the answer... but initial attempts have meet with even wor...
