Axiom Tool Group offers a comprehensive end-user training schedule on Vectric software and our complete lineup of CNC machines. This training will occur each month at our Columbus, OH headquarters, and will provide attendees with an in-depth Vcarve/Aspire 2D & 2.5D education, as well as hands-on training on their respective machines. Training is open to any Axiom customer or prospect. Customer cost for the two-day training event is $299 plus travel expenses.

Meet Michael Mezalick
Beta Tester for the Vectric software company and certified stone restoration member of the Cathedral Stone product company.

Michael began his CNC journey in 2008 when he needed a custom molding piece for a project. This simple need immediately sparked a lifelong interest in 3-D modeling and CNC. Over the years that followed, Michael devoted countless hours to learning and mastering Vectric’s 3-D software and in the process became an internationally recognized 3-D modeler with clients around the world.

A short list of Michael's work and credentials:

Class Highlights:
• Introduction to 3D, including the placement and cutting of single and multiple models will be shown, using already existing 3D ClipArt from the Vcarve and Aspire gallery.
• You'll learn tips and tricks to get you thinking about projects from a different vantage point.
• Attendees are asked to bring your laptop and a working copy of Vectric Vcarve or Aspire software to follow along with the process.

Day 1: Vectric 2D & 2.5D Vector Design and Import
The morning session covers the File Operation, 2D View Control, Create Vectors and Text tools using a step by step approach. The second session covers the Transform, Edit and Align Objects tools. Options, tips and techniques for each are covered, with extra attention being paid to Node Editing.

The afternoon session finishes up with the Offset and Layout Tools, then progresses into material Setup and Toolpath operations. Again, this is an icon by icon look at all but the most advanced toolpath operations. The afternoon finishes up with Toolpath Editing tools and proper file save and transfer procedures, along with a review of covered materials, user questions and examples.

Day 2: Introduction to 3D & Axiom CNC Basics
The morning session shows how to place 3D clip art and 3D models into a material block and position for proper cutting. Use of multiple models and combining 3D models with 2D vectors for 2D and 2.5D cutting are also shown. The last part of this session explains the various modeling tools in the Aspire software and how each is used to develop custom models, modify existing models and how to edit and combine existing models into larger or smaller components

The afternoon session explains many of the day to day items you will run across in your CNC journey in an understandable way. Bits and the differences between them, chipload, feeds and speeds and how to get them correct for your machine. Various hold down methods will also be looked at. We'll then put our new knowledge to work as we create sample projects in the Axiom Test Drive Center.

BONUS: Any attendees are welcome to extend their stay and participate in an informal CNC workshop which will be held Saturday morning.
