Can't Open New Design and Make file

Postby wateague » Sat Feb 02, 2019 6:05 pm

I have Aspire 9.5 and in the past I have opened new Design and Make files.

The V3M file does not open.
Past files were CRV3D that I can open.
I don't use the 3D in a year or so.
I don't know what to try next.

V3M files can't be opened directly they must be imported into an existing job using the Import command on the File menu or the 3D import icon on the modelling tab.

I can open the file a see that it has the downloads that I purchased..
All my old stuff is saved as *.crv3d and I can bring those into my job.
However the Import Vectors command does not see the _C.v3m files that I just purchased
nor can I se them from File-Import.
However I do see *.crv3d as on my list of options

I was able to import the file by
File-Import-Import Component/3D toolpaths.
The import Icon doesn't see C.v3m Files

Have you installed the files that you downloaded? Once installed they should show in your 3D clipart same way the models that came with Aspire do, just double click on the downloaded file to install it :lol: :lol:
The import vectors icon won't work as these are not vectors :lol:

I said the 3D import icon on the modelling tab not the import vectors icon on the drawing tab.
