I just downloaded Vectric Vcarve 9.0 . Now I can test my cognitive ability by learning how to do everything differently from before. I'm anxious to try out some 3d carving but don't know where to start. Any good Samaritans in the audience?

Is that the desktop or pro version? Wish I had a need for it. :)

It's the Vectric V-carve Pro version 9.0 and upgrade to their previous versions. I have been using version 7 and it is limited to 2d work. This version has some editing for 3d designs. I have no idea what I'm going to do with it at the moment or how to go about it all, but I hope to use the edited models to embellish designs. Time will tell. :roll:

They have lists of good tutorials on the vectric website. The version nine also has improved editing features. I need to take time to watch some of those myself.

What will Aspire do that Vcarve 9 won't do; other than relieve you of an arm and a leg?

You can actually create and edit 3D models in Aspire. I've done some creation and some editing. I've also created several lithophanes, but VCarve may do that too.

I've been experimenting with Version 9. This is an example of what I'd like to do more of with the CNC and Ver 9 lets me do it. This is the image produced by Vcarve. I like that feature of the program but several people mistake it for the finished item. For those folks: This is a rendering from the software, not the result of an actual carving. :lol:
