Aspire with versatile 3D modeling tools

Due to the versatile 3D modeling tools, 3D reliefs can be created and edited quickly and easily. A comprehensive tool dataset of editing tools facilitates the design of custom objects on the one hand and 2D and 3D data import on the other. 2D and 3D clipart in relief design included in the Aspire software can be used in your projects and edited individually.

Clear and intuitive user interface

The clear and intuitive design of the user interface makes it easy to design models and edit 3D workpieces. Easy-to-use interactive drag-and-drop tool elements save time during construction and enable the understandable and fast creation of the desired design.

Aspire’s extensive tool database

An extensive tool database provides space for quite a few tools and their parameters. You can use Aspire software for all standard CNC milling machines and machine controllers, thanks to the many available post-processors and machine management. You manage and organize your milling tools so that you can filter by material and machine setup and thus quickly use the appropriate cutting tools.

Post-processor and machine management with Aspire

The mentioned intelligent and online-based post-processor and machine management with Aspire help you manage your CNC milling machine, various additional applications (e.g. rotary axis, laser) and even provides speeds and feeds for standard tools for selected materials.

Integrated Kickstarter Assistant

Thanks to the integrated Kickstarter Wizard, you can get a quick and easy first introduction to the subject and start directly with appropriate parameters with the initial setup, provided that your CNC machine is listed in the constantly updated online listing. With this wizard of Aspire software, you will get the correct post-processor and the correct configuration of the machine directly and stay up to date on relevant innovations.

Aspire with numerous help options

The Aspire software offers numerous help options, such as links to the social media platforms, the Vectric Forum or the Vectric Support Team. Thus, you are not left alone here and receive help in the form of videos, images, or through the exchange of users who work with the software and have already found solutions.
