Can anybody here tell me how to cut one of the clip art dome dishes in Vcarve as a concave half sphere?

Make it Subtractive Merge and add a Zero Plane to the project.

Michael, can you briefly explain that for us in the elementary class please... lol. When I read the OPs question, I thought he was referring to the 3D model of the dome. Which dome are we talking about? What on earth is subtractive merge? And where is the Zero Plane.

I apologize if this is hard to explain, but I am just wanting to understand.

Hi Ed,

There are a couple video tutorials that explain and show the procedures.

Here is a link to one of the VCarve tutorials. Go to the 20-minute mark for the info about Zero Plane and making a Dome subtractive merge:

There are at least three ways to change the Merge properties of a component. The video shows just one of the methods.

I've learned so much from my mistakes, I'm thinking of making a few more.
