Pocketing

I am missing something in trying to pocket out the white stripes up to the outer circle of the Jeep and outside the lettering. Thanks much "getting old just doesn't help"

Not sure if this is exactly what you are after, but here is one option.

Looks like they are open vectors so you won't be able to pocket them, you should be getting an error message telling you this :lol: :lol: :lol:

The White stripes need to be closed vectors then you can pocket them to whatever depth you want.

You have a bit more work to do in cleaning up your flag stripes before they can be pocketed.

Node edit, Join and trim Vectors, and add vectors to the stripes where it meets the Circle around the jeep.
