  • Aspire v9.5 is available


    Unlike other updates you have to login to your Vectric Portal to see the new update and download. I posted for those who may not have their machine hooked to internet access.

    We are delighted to announce the release of Aspire v9.5 - a FREE update for all v9 customers. As of today, everyone running Aspire v9 on a computer with internet access will see an update notification in the top right-hand corner of its main window. Simply click on the notification link, log in to your V&Co account and download the full installer for the latest v9.5 features.

    If you run Aspire on a computer without internet access, you can still access your account and download the installer from any other internet enabled computer by visiting the V&Co site directly using your web browser

    https://portal.vectric.com/

    Videos demonstrating the new features can be found here:

    The highlights of this release are:

    Rotary Axis Job Support - Create rotary projects and visualize your job in a wrapped environment, with the ability to create and simulate the toolpaths in an auto-wrapped simulation.

    Picture Editor - Change the contrast, brightness and gamma of your imported bitmaps. Make them black and white, apply borders and crop them to fit your design.

    In-place text editing and transformations - See live feedback of the text that you create and edit. Text maintains formatting, allowing you to easily make edits after the text has been created without losing transforms, spacing or kerning.

    3D Helical Arcs in Ramping – Makes for smoother cuts and smaller file sizes for machines that support this option.

    Online Clipart Access - See the clipart you are entitled to and download the pieces you want, when you want them, directly from within your software.


    Please note: v9.5 is a complete installation that will install alongside and independently of your existing v9 software. Once you've installed v9.5, v9 will still be available so make sure you are running the latest version by checking the text in the main window title bar (top-left). As soon as you are happy with your update, you can go ahead and uninstall v9.

    This is usually the email address you registered with us when you first purchased Aspire. If you're still not sure, follow the link to email support and we can help you get back up and running.

          Gerry,
          Are you sure you didn't mean Aspire 9.5? I just checked for the update of (VcarvePro) as you said it has updated to 9.5.
          I got the message saying I have the latest version at 9.015.

            You have to log into the portal to get the v9.5 upgrade. It installs separate from your 9.015.
