The Aspire Modeling and Machining Process
The process to design and machine CNC projects such as dimensional signs, custom furniture or decorative carvings with Aspire has been set-up to be as intuitive as possible. The starting point for all parts is to import or create your 2D design using Aspire's flexible set of vector drawing tools. If your part does not have any 3D elements then you can go straight to creating accurate and efficient toolpaths to cut the shapes. If your design includes 3D shapes then the powerful modeling tools will let you create all the dimensional components you need. When you are happy with the 3D model you can create a combination of 2D or 3D toolpaths to turn your design into reality on your CNC machine.
Below are a selection of videos which will show you different aspects of using Aspire. These are based on actual tutorial videos but have been designed to give you an overview of the process to create a variety of parts. Topics shown include importing and toolpathing a design from another program, vector fitting and cutting a toolpath from an image, drawing and machining a new design and a selection of examples to show the power of the 3D modeling and manipulation in the software.
