How can I import a 3D model into Aspire/VCarve from another software program?

 

You first need to create a new job or already have a job open in the software to be able to import 3D files from another software program.

 Use the Import a Component or 3D Model icon  located on the Modeling tab in the Modeling Tools section OR use File > Import >Import Component / 3D Model.

Both methods will allow you to browse your PC's folder system, and once you find a suitable file type, you can select it and click Open. If it is compatible then it will be imported and added to the Component List, with the component name will be derived from the file name (but can be renamed at any time).

For the available file types, please see the following articles.
