Vectric are pleased to announce the initial release of Aspire version 4, for existing Aspire customers. This contains many enhancements and also completely new functionally. A key part of the development philosophy behind this release was to work through the most heavily used tools in the program to see if we could make them even easier to use. This has resulted in many additions and tweaks which will improve the general work-flow for all users. We have also added some very powerful new functions such as the "Extrude and Weave" modeling tool. Using the buttons below you can read more about the main enhancements in each section of the program.
The "What's New" document and videos on this page describe and demonstrate these features in greater detail.
IMPORTANT RELEASE INFORMATION
Initially the software will only be available as a download for existing Aspire customers who are entitled to a free upgrade or to customers who purchase an upgrade from an older version of Aspire.
All Aspire customers have been sent an email to let them know the upgrade is available; this included information on how to download the new version or purchase the upgrade. If you have a licensed copy of Aspire and have not received an email from Vectric then please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org from the email address that the software was registered to.
Over the next 2-3 weeks we will be completing the production of the disks which will include over 30 hours of newly recorded tutorial material as well as a significantly increased number of 3D clipart models that will be included with the program. Once this becomes available we will make an announcement and start shipping the disks to everyone who is entitled to Aspire V4.
Customers purchasing a new copy of Aspire or upgrading from VCarve Pro will continue to receive a set of version 3.5 disks until the new kits are available. They will also be issued with codes and access to the download for V4.
Existing Aspire customers will no longer receive V3.5 when they upgrade. Instead they will be sent the download link to V4 and then will be shipped a set of the disks (containing the tutorials and clipart) as soon as they become available.
