Rogwabbit; if you wouldnt mind, could you walk me through you're cheat. Did you use Carbide software for cutting, or something else?
Im still getting my head back into graphics programs, its been a few years since I have seriously played with them. Mostly Photoshop and Illustrator. How many years? Well CS2, which is what I am using (read as releaning) now. lol. Thankfuly I still have a couple of my old books around to help.
I think this weekend I will be trying to get some work holding in place. Iv seen a couple of ideas that look pretty nifty. I will aslo be working on dialing in the machine a little more, and figuering out how things work. Thats the plan at least. lol.
