These setup functions also allow you to specify your rotary part setup and view the wrapped results in the 3D view. Depending on the shape of the part there is a choice of Raster and Offset cutting strategies. It helps to change the format of images into other images format. This approach is particularly useful if you need to make design changes based on customer feedback. This is useful when rather than modeling a profile along the rotation axis, it is more intuitive to specify a desired cross section. Bitmaps can also be made black and white. This is particularly powerful for applications like Cabinet Making where different designs can be automatically machined once a template has been set-up.
To use the tool you require only the profile that you want to turn. It transforms objects and helps to create logos. Vector shapes can also be pasted along the path of another vector by specifying the distance between each copy or just fitting a specific number on the guiding object. The tool includes many options to help you control the way the shape flows and the final result you get. Put your question out the experts who are using the software everyday or simply share some pictures of your latest project. Create Shapes from Vector Outlines The Create Shape modeling function Instantly adds 3D shape to a closed vector outline based on either a Curved, Angular or Planar flat profile.
This means there is no need to create a vector boundary around them for these operations. When combined with Snapping options that automatically detect and snap the cursor to key regions on a design these tools make it easy to create very accurate part. There are also editing tools for Fitting Text to a Curve and interactive text arcing and spacing kerning where the text maintains formatting, allowing you to easily make edits after the text has been created. Welcome to the Vectric Support Site, where you will find information to help you learn how to use our software, find answers to questions and access customer resources such as our free monthly projects. Key features of Vectric Aspire 8. As with the drawing tools you either have precise control over the editing values adjust the vectors very accuratley or can use the mouse to dynamically make adjustments until your layout looks correct.
The clipart Tab also allows you to access the online clipart that comes free with the software, where the clipart can be downloaded directly from the running software providing you have internet access. Finally, if you have reached this far, we'd like to thank you for your interest in Vectric software and encourage you to. Important Screen Shoot: Vectric Aspire 8. Move your mouse over these tabs to show the page temporarily. There are also 40 files created specifically for use with the Create Texture Tile function. Define your cylinder dimensions, the orientation of the job, how the 2D view will be laid out, and which axis we're wrapping around.
This can be tweaked by the operator by editing the 'Scale Factor' so over time a value can be optimized based on actual machine performance to ensure the estimate is as close as possible to the actual cutting time. This is useful when importing models which contain non-convex surfaces, such as, a plate. The tool transforms a vector, representing a cross section, into a profile vector that can be subsequently used with two rail sweep tool. Using the component manager Component Tree individual 3D objects can be adjusted to change the way they interact with each other within a project. The grouping feature makes it easy to associate all vectors for a particular toolpath strategy together so only one needs to be selected.
Shapes can be easily scaled, moved, mirrored, distorted, grouped, trimmed and cropped. This tab includes the library browser that allows you to add folders containing 3D components into the software or you can use the local files option that allows you to quickly see the contents of several folders of 3D components in one place. Quick Keys This allows you to add more precision to your shape creation and editing process more easily by allowing typed values while creating geometry. Once imported, the program has a wide range of tools to make working with this data as efficient as possible. The visibility of individual components can then be altered, even after the design has been imported into a new model.
Our Forum community is over 18,000 strong Whether you have advice that you want to share, you're looking for inspiration or you want to join your fellow creatives in an exciting new project, the Vectric Forum is the ideal place to head over to. At the bottom of the page you will see an area with View All Help. Drawings are not, therefore, printed at actual size and are not printed across multiple pages. Each video is full of useful hints and tips to get you started with the software and ensure you get the most out of it. The 3D model preview allows 3D components to be displayed in different material types or colors to produce realistic results. It is the support and resources available when you are learning the program or when you have a question about how something works or even a suggestion for a new feature.
