Wish list items?

Post by letterman7 »

Good stuff so far, Vectric crew! At the moment I have little need for Aspire...what I and other sign guys do need is a "real" inlay setup and a prismatic lettering setup. If *cough*artcam*cough* can offer this, surely you guys can too? Is there anything in the works?

I would most definitely like to see the same inlay function as ArtCam Insignia's version. That would assist me in most of the jobs I will be cutting.
Especially the stepped one.

Prismatic here too. What we need is the algorithm for the correct stepover on large design/V bit diameter ratio. Full prismatic combined with the current bevel edge strategy (with inside/outside sharp corners) will definitely set Vectric apart from the rest. :wink: Prismatic/beveled edge is really popular among my customers.

Rob S,

if you search the forum, or if someone can remember, you will find thread(s) discussing the "trick" to create inlay vectors based on the cutter diameter. It's pretty straight forward and this only what ACI do in it's toolpath wizard. In other words, you can already do this in the current release of VCP.
