Post processors for Aspire

I recently began helping a friend use his new desktop CNC which he bought with Vectric Aspire. His files post fine (CamMaster), but If I try to post to one of the Thermwood PP's it errors out on my machine. I am using a CS43 5-12. Is there a post processor specifically for this machine? The PP's on ...

Re: can't get gap between doors when stacking vertically

Try putting your doors on before you set the fixed shelves. So long as you know what the height is you can tell it how big you want your doors. I haven't been able to do it successfully the other way round.

Re: Warm up Program

Thanks, Clint! I wonder why this type of program is not included with the q-core? Seems like a prudent addition and one that costs literally nothing to put in the package. :beer:

Re: Warm up Program

Is that greese program any closer to being put up mike? Just stumbled upon this old thread, after reading about the warm up cycle some do daily for their machine. Does anyone have this program written that runs the spindle through the x/y extents? I ran the spindle warmup code posted here and it se...

Re: Wow!!!

t's a good thing that part of my design process is to save each cabinet individually in a customer directory as well as put it in the room layout. That way I'm able to put cabinets "back" when they've been AI'd (take your pick on the meaning of AI) out of the room. :lol: I do this too. It...

Re: today's q-core CN update

You hit that right on the head! The DXF layer function does lots of stuff for us very well, but as my ability progresses I find that I am want for something a little more full featured for doing signs and modeling. I have test driven the Aspire program from vectric, but not any of the delcam or rhin...

Re: today's q-core CN update

That is exactly what I was looking for, Brad. Thanks for bringing it into the light. Looks Like I'm going to have to test-cut some examples to fully feel out the application of the commands to see it working as intended. I actually turned down some work recently that this would have been useful for,...

pocket islands

Is there a way to set up islands in pockets using the DXF layers? I'm doing a piece of text and the interiors of the letters like "O" and "R" are being pocketed out. I have closed vectors and I'm pretty sure they are clean. Does the Island need a dummy depth or something? Thanks ...

today's q-core CN update

Can someone elaborate on this?
From the release notes:

Cut centerline lines via DXF with changes in Z. (ADDED)

Does the help file get updated with these additional features, so that I can learn how to use them?

Re: Nesting issues

Have you Double checked your materials properties? Or changed them since you've created that part in the drawerbox editor? If those check out, I'm out of guesses :beer:

Re: Nesting issues

I can't speak to the algorithm that lays out parts in the sheet to "maximize" off-fall, but that is frustration I share with you. It would be nice to be able to manually move parts around a bit so the nest is truly optimized. Almost daily, I talk to my machine wondering "Why did you d...

Re: Change Cabinet numbers?

I know you could change the number of a cabinet in the batch dialog by right clicking the cabinet number. I've never done it in the custom layout editor, but I'm sure there must be a way.

Re: Drawer locks

It doesn't seem to work that way, there needs to be some numerical value in the bottom inset variable box, and that value seems to drive the relative "Y" positioning. It is rather cumbersome to do the back-figuring to find the correct value for the top inset, based on the other values (dra...
