Don't Have Version 9.0 of VCarve yet ----
Are You Having trouble visualizing two sided projects when designing in V8.5 or earlier versions?
I have found when I have trouble visualizing certain aspects of a two sided project in VCarve V8.5 I just rough everything in VCarve 8.5 using layers for the two different sides. Then I just open that .crv file into the Trail Version 9.0 of VCarve. Make a few adjustments within separating the two sides from the layers into the proper places in V9. Create if necessary and then Run the tool paths. I am then able to preview both sides of my project after running all toolpaths. Adjust depths and any other features that need adjusting (Take notes down on changes -- can't use files saved in newer versions (V9) and then use in previous versions (V8.5 & Earlier)). Re-Calculate tool paths, and verify! I then go back to Version 8.5 make the adjustments from my notes. Re-calculate tool paths, verify and then I am ready to proceed with carving my project.
This does not help Vectric for whatever reason an individual has for not upgraded his/her VCarve product. I just thought maybe this tip would help those like myself who have trouble visualizing two sided projects until he/she is ready to upgrade! But then again who knows the more you use the two-sided application within TRIAL Version 9.0 of VCarve it may prompt you into biting the bullet and Upgrading anyway!!!
Myself I have just not seen a significant advantage to upgrade to V9.0 Yet!
