Re: confederate flag

I'm not sure about VCarve, but in Aspire it's easy enough to model. Attached are vectors. Put the background color to match the flag will help model it.

Kamoto Dragon

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.

Old Phone

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.

Re: Making valid a job on Trial

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...

Re: Seperate drawing package, which one to buy?

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.

Re: Dust Management

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.

Re: Break Point

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...

Re: 3D inaccuracies

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 ...

Re: Update on Microscope

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...

Re: Carving a 3D into foam.

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.
