How is Carveco doing?
Might pull the trigger myself.

Haha! Going through the tutorials now, Ronnie, but we jumped on Carveco Saturday while the gettin' was good. Aspire is based on ArtCAM Standard and Carveco is basically ArtCAM Premium so I have tons of videos I can watch for tutorials to get me in the ballpark.

Fusion 360 'fits' my way of thinking and working but Aspire/ArtCAM/Carveco does not, so that's a hurdle to clear. It's starting to make sense and I'm sure I'll like it once I gain some confidence.

I bought as well. Have been traveling and have not had much time to use it. Does open all my ArtCAM files. The smart engraving toolpaths look cool - can use more than one roughing tool, as a test, did one using 6 separate tools. Was not available in my ArtCAM or other software. Have discovered, that like ArtCAM before, the 3dconnexion Spacemouse does work with it! Really handy for pan, rotate and zoom of the 3d windows. Something that still does not work with any of the Vectric software titles...

P.s. pm me, might be able to help find you a discount.

Adaptive Clearing is a toolpath strategy that allows you to cut much deeper, using more of the tool.

Like Gerry said, it lets you use more of the bit to clear material. I cut some trivets using 3D Adaptive Clearing and it was pretty cool, albeit a bit scary the first time I used it.

The first time I ran an adaptive clearing toolpath I was so impressed with the "intelligence" I don't know why it isn't included in (Autodesk) Artcam???
I may sacrifice a couple of cheap bits and attempt to simulate it in Aspire using an extreme depth of cut and a really light stepover. Ya think???
Probably have to start with a drilling toolpath. We'll see.

Let us know how it works out. Video (widescreen) if you try it.

This is what is says:

"Toolpath optimization
With conventional machining, the feed rate is set at a constant speed determined by the most demanding aspect of the toolpath. The Optimize Feed Rates option analyses the toolpaths created in Carveco and adjusts the feed rate to give a constant rate of material removal. Benefits include:

A higher feed rate for lighter cuts and air moves, enabling faster machining.
A more consistent cutting-tool load, reducing machining-spindle and tool wear. This also produces a better surface finish, which improves quality and reduces the time and cost of hand-finishing .
A reduction in the feed rate as the cutter enters and leaves the material, which reduces tooling costs and the need to fit replacements. Similarly, protecting the machine tool reduces maintenance costs and limits down time.
A reduced need for manual adjustment of the feed rate and a reduced need for operator supervision."

That sounds a lot like adaptive clearing to me.
