Not to carve a box over a 3d image

Postby HMPrintDesign » Fri Aug 25, 2017 3:03 pm


I am tasked with making a fantasy football plaque. I have the design just about ready, the only hang up I'm getting is that I want a rectangle that is placed over the 3d football to NOT be carved but left blank so that I vcarve text into it.

For the life of me I just can't figure out how to do it. The dotted line is the section I want left untouched by the 3D carving.

Select both the rectangle, and your outer border vector, and use the "Selected Vectors" option in the 3D toolpath, and it'll leave the inner rectangle untouched.
