Re: Snowed in living on the generator.....

You're right, Utah is a great state. I live in the mouth of Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons (East side of Salt Lake City), where there's the "Greatest Snow on Earth", with the best of skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiles, and of course the site of the 2002 Winter Olympics. My son takes his Jeep to Mo...

Re: What Did I Do to get a Mirror Image using Mach3?

That was my thought, but I can't figure out where in Mach 3 the change would be. Also, I can't understand why it's cutting a mirror image.

What Did I Do to get a Mirror Image using Mach3?

After the last upgrade in Aspire, and thinking I got the Mach 3 controler configured right for use with my rotary indexer, things seemed to work fine and I have use it successfully on carvings. The only strange thing was, my -Y setting would go North and +Y would go South prior to my settings and no...

Re: Sign larger than table limits need help regarding texturing

You can take the entire component and copy it in the working model. Draw a box 1/2 the size and position it on the far left side and "ctrl,shift,H" to copy the box the the right side. Highlight the left box and clear the outside of the box, then make that compenent. Do the same for the right side. S...

Colored Carvings

After making this box, the cravings needed something to stand out, so I decided to try the glazing technique that Tim provided in his Step by Step Guide. The problem was, I went to Home Depot to get the supplies, which was very limited and I didn't want to wait to order the products somewhere else. ...

Re: Goofy Names

Sorry for the post. After restarting my computer, everything seems to work now. Another reason I dislike the Vista Operating System.

Goofy Names

After upgrading, I started a new project. When it was time to name the component I just drew, the spelling was totally different than what I typed. i.e. when I typed "Lid", it came out "cuz". I closed Aspire and reopen it. This time I was able to name the component correctly, except when I went to s...

Re: Missing Files

Thanks Tony and Greg,

After your suggestions, everything seems to work great. It also helped when I enabled A motor output.

Re: Missing Files

Tony, I'm still trying to wrap my brain around the concept of wrapping. I loaded the tapered leg file and through tool path drawing section, wrapped the Y value around the x-axis, then saved the toolpathes. Loading the files in Mach 3, although it don't show the display in 3D view, it indeed follows...
