Vectric 2D & 2.5D Design and Toolpath

The design portion of this class explains in detail the creation, modification and combining of each of the vector creation tools.  Also covered in depth are the Transform, Edit, Align and Offset & Layout tools.  Drawing tab icons are covered one by one with all options explained.  Information and methodology pertinent to woodworkers, sign makers and artists are covered.

The toolpath section of the class covers all of the 2 & 2.5D Material Setup and Toolpath Operations on the Toolpath tab.  Each type of toolpath and its associated parameters are explained in detail as well as numerous tricks and some “out of the box” methodology.  Strategies for different materials and bits as well as problematic shapes are covered.

Tool types, creation and organization are covered for single and multi tool systems.  Post processor selection and the toolpath editing tools are discussed.  Tricks to get the most out of the Toolpath Preview and Estimate Time features are shown.

The Vectric Design and Toolpath classes are user participation classes taught by two instructors using a “left brain – right brain” tag team approach that should leave no attendee wanting.   Attendees are asked to bring problematic files.

Vector creation, transform and toolpath options available in Cut2D are an exact subset of those in VCarve Pro & Aspire and are taught together.  The 2D & 2.5D Classes are a required prerequisite to all Aspire Classes.

Features that are new in version 8.5 will be covered.
