Cabin Fever strikes again. To overcome my boredom from being coupe up, I designed this in ZBrush and cut it out from some old scraps I had in the shop. Painted with Stone Paint from Home Depot.
Being locked up in quarantine, I wasn't able to go to the "Board Store", so I found a section of tree trunk from a Bradford Pear I cut down a few years ago and cut the sections of wood I needed out of that. I designed it in Rhino from a real one my daughter has.

I'm not sure about "trail version" results, but Aspire will open any of your Vcarve files. You will be very happy using Aspire. I have older versions of PhotoCarve, Cut3D, and Vcarve Pro, but since I started with Aspire, I never use the other software anymore because Aspire will do everything the ot...

I use Rhino 6. You can save the results in different files such as stl, dwg, etc. or save in as a Rhino 4 (.3dm) file and import directly into Aspire.

You might consider a remote control switch. I have several remotes at each piece of equipment, where I can turn on the dust controller in seconds, without walking over to it. Depending on how much power a piece of equipment needs, I've seen cheap ones as low as $20.
Depending on what controller you're using. In my case I use Mach 3, where you have a "Run From Here" where you can insert what line you want to start. If I need to stop for any reason, I'll mark down what line is on and restart it from there. It will bring up a box that you will want to check to "st...
A few weeks ago, a model I acquired was hollow, so I worked it (slicing and filling) in ZBrush. ZBrush had a problem which was only corrected a few days by a recent update. When I brought it into Aspire, the measure was off drastically. I ended up using Netfabb to see what the original size was and ...

If the dot size is too large from the lazer have some one machine a cap to snugly fit over the end and drill a .030 hole in it to start with. then enlarge it to suit. Right now the size of the dot is 1.5mm (.050"), which seems very good. If it's a ever a problem, I can re-do the bushing and cap the...

I haven't done too many foam jobs, but when I did, most places, I didn't need a roughing pass. When I did, I used the same ball mill which didn't require resetting the zero position.
