Thanks again for your help, and I would still love any tips or pointers on more advanced techniques with this method (wish I had known this before I cut, we did it out of 3/4" oak plywood, pretty spendy stuff, the g-code from the other program dragged the cuter across the top after I cut out the middle monitor hole, really bugs as this is pretty spendy wood, that has now become the "bottom" of the top piece).

I am attaching some plans for a pac-man cabinet, now I can get most of it programmed in, but when it comes to stuff like the top arch and some of the other radiuses, I can do what looks ok to my eye, but I know I'm not right on to their plans. Is there a way to be exact with things like that? The way I did the top arch was to use the node editing handles to just make the arch by hand (no actual radius was typed in etc...).
Any v-carve experts want to share how they would program this?
