    Can I open a TAP file in Aspire 9.5?

    I have the TAP files generated by Fingermaker and wanted to open them in Aspire, hoping to shift the pieces for optimal placement on my lumber piece.

    I didn't see how I could import it (other...

    Ya Scott,
    I had read that thread yesterday and did a search for the file.... Only found it on AliBaba for $4... I had almost finalized the order when I aborted due to feeling uneasy... either...

    Thanks Scott,
    I installed Fingermaker. It looks more daunting, but I will check it out... I can't remember if it has sharp angles on the mortises and tenons, I think it might.

    Scott (Plaisted), I love the owl IN the log! Can that file be purchased somewhere? Kinda looks like Design&Make, but wasn't sure about the 'branch' inside the log. Nice work :)

    I did a practice run, and it works, but I don't like the radiused internal right angles. Am I stuck with these? I find the sharp internal angles and sharp external angles grayed out when I hoped to...

    Eric, I got rid of the file, but I just tried the gadget again, only this time I looked for the toolpath file, and sure enough, it was there. Thank you for suggesting that, I'm pretty sure that was...

    Thanks Scott, for your suggestions. I had already progressed through the roughing. I really like your tip of previewing the toolpaths for different bits. I didn't realize one can view a toolpath...
  12. Using the 3D Finishing Toolpath for ROUGHING vs using the 3D Roughing Toolpath

    After searching the forums I am going to start a long overdue project, a 3D model ~ 8x20 on old growth redwood (Praying Cowboys from Design & Make).

    I was intrigued by the idea (if I understood...

    Hi, I never wanted nor did I select the dovetails... I clicked on the Square Tabs box, because I wanted box joints, not dovetail joints. I did not see any toolpaths from the box generator???

    No, they were clearly cut as square tabs, everything at right angles, but thanks.

    Has anyone used the Box Creator (v1.1) gadget successfully for square tabs?
  15. Box Gadget: I'm confused by the vectors for profiling ('Box Layer' vs CutOut Layer)

    I was excited to try out the Box Creator (v1.1), but alas the Square Tabs I profiled were way off. I wanted two inch square tabs, but the tabs came out 2.25" and the receiver space was only 1.75". ...
