Hi Stephanie, I really want to make this project for my wife but I missed it when it was available. Is there any way you can share those project files with me? Thanks in advanced.

When I first saw this project I knew that it was a thing that I could do to give to my wife, in June we have been married 30 years.
Unfortunately, as I discovered when I unzipped the file, it is for Aspire only. :(
So, now I have to figure out how to do it in Vcarve Desktop. I have 5 months to do that 8)
I wish that Vectric could release Aspire Desktop, I would buy that in a jiffy.
17 000 SEK + taxes is approximately 21 250 SEK, way to much for a hobbyist.
