Built on the same platform as the VCarve Software, Aspire has the same intuitive interface and simplicity for use in design and machining. In addition to the powerful tools provided by VCarve, Aspire enables you to transform 2D sketches, photos, drawings, and digital artwork into detailed 3D relief models. From these models Aspire can calculate roughing and finishing tool paths so these shapes can be accurately cut.
Even though Aspire is very easy to use, it is used by a wide range of individuals and business to produce a whole range of parts from decorative panels & signs to moulds & awards. The applications for Aspire are endless.
Aspires 3D component modelling coupled with the extensive 2D tools makes it easy to work on existing 2D and 3D Models as well as create your own from scratch. Vectric have developed a unique approach to 3D Modelling with Aspire, models can be easily built up from simple shapes, and modified at anytime without having to recreate the component. Working with 3D Shapes from 2D vectors is very interactive, in Aspire any changes are instantly updated in the 3D View to show exactly what the final result will look like. 3D Components can be displayed in various materials and colours to give an accurate representation that can be presented to customers or clients.
Vectric have withheld their reputation of making software easy by concentrating not only on ease of use, but also simplify operations, and making the whole process much more logical. Having simplicity at their core principle, they still haven’t lost the professional level needed for the
The aspire process
Creating and making parts with a CNC Machine using Aspire has been made as simple as possible by Vectric. Using Aspire’s built in 2D Tools vectors paths can be created. From this you can use Apsire’s modelling tools to create all the dimensional components needed. Once happy, using 2D and 3D tool paths the model can be made a reality on your CNC Machine.
Designs can be imported in a wide range of formats including (EPS, AI, DXF, DWG, PDF, SKP etc ). Tools are also included for converting images (JPEG, TIF, PNG, BMP, PDF) into vectors which can then be machined. Standard designs from libraries like the Vector Art one can also be directly loaded into Aspire to create tool paths. Vectors can be manipulated using scaling, sizing and positioning tools.
Aspire will handle many potential problems in minutes, that could take ours in other packages. Such as duplicate copies, small loops, and coincident nodes.
