Live Online Class Review

Legacy’s live online CNC training classes are recorded and listed below for two weeks for you to review.  After the two week period they are placed in either the CNC Projects or CNC Tutorials sections.

CabinetSense – Design to Cutting on a CNC

Learn how to quickly go from design and programming to cutting custom cabinet parts on your CNC using SketchUp and CabinetSense software.  Make changes effortlessly that redimension the entire project instantly.  This is the best value in cabinet making software.  As an extension to SketchUp, CabinetSense allows you to not only design the cabinetry but also all of the embellishments that go with it.  In fact you can model and design the entire house including the landscape using SketchUp’s powerful design tools.


Textured Panels

In this video we demonstrate three different methods for creating a textured panel. The first uses Aspire’s Texturing Toolpath and doesn’t require drawing anything at all. In the second demo we create a pattern of closed vectors and use Aspire’s V Carve Toolpath to quickly machine the panel. In the third example we use Aspire’s modeling tools to create a texture that looks like waves created in sand.


Carving Based Turnings

In this video you will learn how to import an STL 3D model into Aspire. You will also learn how to perform the wrapped job setup, orient and scale the model and then create the toolpaths. Once the toolpaths are created you will save the G Code using Legacy’s 4-axis post processor. The part can then be carved between centers on your 4 axis turning center.


Model Over Text

In this class we show how to use Aspire to create plaques and awards with a model that covers over the text.
