I am quite familiar with Vectric. I have been using Aspire for over five years.
I have looked in Vectric for the project files for the ticker.
At this time they are not in the Vectric project files.
Where can I find these files?

Hi Dan

I create whatever I'm working on in GT (Ticker) and get it on the Project Screen,  On the Project screen there is a button DXF.  I export whatever piece of the ticker I want with the DXF button and save it to a Folder of my choice and then repeat that for each piece I want to put into Aspire.

In Aspire there is an "import vectors" button and I use that to import the item from the folder that I created.

From there on I stay in Aspire doing whatever mods. I want and creating the gCode with Aspire.

I only go the other way (Aspire to GT) if I'm creating a spoke or and indicator .

I under stand how to use Aspire. That is not my question.
On the Ticker tutorial Art tells us that there is a web site to got to down load the files for this ticker.
The note at the end although it is not very definitiv e points me to Vectric.
My question is. Since the files are not apparent in Vectric, Where are the reference d files.

Bob. The site you put in your last message does not have the info I want. It is the site that caused me to ask the question in the first place.

Hi Art; After viewing your video "Designing and construct ing a Ticker" I have the urge to build one.
I quote you from that video."The plans for scimitar  Including the drawings and Gcode files and so on will be available at a web address  I will post at the end of this video. Everythin g will be made public domain so that people who wish to make a copy of scimitar ten, my hope though is that people will begin to understan d how these things are designed so they can begin to design them selves".
I don't know what happened but the posting at the end of the video does not contain that info.
Would you be so kind as to post the informati on where I can find the data to get me started.
Thank you for all your generous contribut ions. They have peaked my interest and are Greatly appreciat ed.
Dan

Dan1931;


Link http://gearotic.com/ESW/FavIcons/index.php?topic=908.0  appears to be proper link for construct ing a Ticker. You'll notice in Art's post at the bottom a file called "simitar.z ip", download it, unzip it and in there you'll find all files require for you to build one.


Cheers
