Re: Aspire import of SVG resizes the objects

Earlier this year I had a project that had 24 different slices that was converted to STL. Because each piece was hollow, I had to take it into ZBrush to fill each piece. The problem I had was ZBrush's size update had a bug so after making several parts twice, I started resizing in Aspire to the part...

Re: Dust cnc makes a lot of it

I save it in different containers and use it on all kinds of projects. On some Intarsias I've used it for the background and mix it with glue for filler. More recent I mixed some Sapele Wood Chips with some resin and used it to coat and color the project. https://forum.vectric.com/viewtopic.php?f=29...

Re: 2 sided job

I have done many dozens of double side projects, where each project has a dozen or more double sides components, making it hundreds of double sided jobs. Now I know MOST people recommend doing it the way the tutorial describes, however I think my way is so much easier and faster, and you don't have ...

Re: issue with 4th axis project

I'm not sure what machine you're using, but tap files probably won't work. I use the Mach 2/3-WrapX2A ATC (mm)(*txt) Post Processor. My rotary sits in the Y position and I use mm. Use the one that corresponds to your machine.

How to Freak Out Your Dogs

I took all the old scraps I had laying around the shop, glued them up and came up with enough wood for this mountain lion. Because of all the patch work when I spliced each section, I took some Sapele Wood Chips, mixed it with some fiberglass resin and brushed it on. It not only covered all the seam...

Re: Fixing intersecting vector issues

There's several ways, but the first one I did was under Node Editing Mode, I right clicked each line and inserted a point. Then drag that point to the intersection of two of the lines, then did that with the other lines that didn't intersect.

Re: Scroll Saw PAttern

You're right Michael, I tried it both ways and the Job Resolution Setup didn't effect the outcome of the Bitmap Trace, in fact the standard resolution makes things go faster, where the computer don't need to work as hard. However, the other steps, getting the Bitmap to a higher resolution in Photosh...

Re: Scroll Saw PAttern

I just ordered some Intarsia plans for my next project. They were 36-inches wide and between 30 and 50-inches long. Way too large for my letter size scanner, so I took them to FedEX, scanned them and saved them as pdf files. Once I got home, I opened them using Photoshop, changed them first to Grays...

Re: Cutting Two Sided Melamine Chipping VCarve Pro 10

When I was doing my pool table, I used melamine for the forms for the slate. I just use a 6mm - 4-flute end mill. I didn't have any chipping, running each pass 1/2 the diameter of the mill. However, if you're concerned, you may lay masking tape down where the cuts will go which would help avoid any ...

Using Aspire, I've exported the vectors out as dxf file where either my plasma cutter software, 3D printer software or Laser cutter software will accept.
