Re: Need 3d cnc dinosaur puzzle

Here's one I've had for years. The problem is I can't remember how to put all the parts together. Maybe you can figure it out.

Re: Bit plunges in

Just had the same thing happen to me yesterday. It turned out to be a bad collet that allowed the bit to slip out.

I could/should of used a bigger clock but that one I've had sitting in my storage box for a long time. I let my great granddaughter paint it...and that's my story and...

Re: Export to Corel

The sales guy demonstrated the laser printing from Corel using different coloured lines for engraving and cutting, if I can send the file to the laser from Aspire that would be better for me as I don’t need to learn another software program. As I said I am new to all this. You should have software ...

Hi Kevin,

Re: Export to Corel

I have both a 60 watt and a 400 watt laser machines, that when I export from Aspire, it is as a "ai" file for the 60 watt and a "dxf" for the 400 watt. Both lasers will except a bitmap file.

Re: Need some help please

Here's an idea that was a quick model using Aspire's clipart which depicts a frame of our 50th. We will be celebrating our 53rd in June. By the way, I had a lot more hair back in those days then I have now.

1931 Maybach DS 8 Zeppelin

I was looking at pictures of old antique cars and came across a 1931 Maybach DS 8 Zeppelin. Collecting several pictures with different profiles, I decided to model one in Rhino and Aspire. I think I was semi-accurate with the measurements. Anyway, this was the outcome.

Re: '32 Buick

Scott, thanks for explaining the Heated Ash I used. I had about a 6-ft length left that I used on my last project, but blew through it all of it trying to the small parts I needed, but had mostly the same results with it chipping and blowing apart. Maybe on large projects I'll consider it again, but...

Re: My latest 3Dwave.us carve

I guess we think alike, I just bought this model from Myminifactory to slice and make a full 3D model similar to my Komodo Raider. viewtopic.php?f=29&t=36127 Where did you get your carving?

Re: Laser Crosshair on CNC Complete How To For Under $40

Do you know of any that don't need insert/removal of batteries to power on/off? A .223 would fit a 1/4 chuck nicely. Saw one on Amazon, but it was $16.00, twice what I paid and they do require batteries. I just unscrew the cap slightly to turn it off and leave it in a collet so I don't lose any of ...
