Here is the picture I could not upload in my previous post
I like the rope work. Most of the rope work I see in models
look flat.

There is a single rope link in the library. Copy along edge vector. Add to component height if too flat.

There are a lot of undercuts in the picture you posted. That will not model in aspire nor be easy to machine on a standard 3 axis CNC machine if you get the model somewhere else. You could model most of it in Aspire and then hand carve the undercuts if you are able / willing.

Mike,
I never even thought of copying a 3D object along a vector! ...In VCarve Pro.
This is going to lead to all sorts of fun.
Thank you,
Bob

Once it's modeled and Sliced, Aspire can do it a a double sided project. It might take more than one slice, but it could be done.

I wouldn't use that particular pic for a model, its heavily cropped for one.

There are loads of celtic cross designs available, both paid and free.
