If you can find your clipart file, it should be in the Plants and Fruit folder, or go into search by hitting the start button, and type in grapes.

Thank you for your reply
I found the clip art file but as you can see, it is selected but getting this error message,
I just wanted a simple carved shape, not a 3d just for now.
what is missing hear.
Thank you.

You can't use the V-Carve toolpath on a model.

Use the Roughing and Finishing toolpaths.

If you want to use V-Carve to V-Carve a grape leaf then you'll need a vector grape leaf. You could Google for Vector grape leaf or Grape leaf image and use the Trace Bitmap tool to create a Vector image.

You really should consider spending sometime watching the Tutorials on the Vectric website. They will help you a lot.

Hi highpockets
Thank you again for your time and your help
I was able to go on line and download a simple file, and mirror it as you can see and it was a very cool result.

I watch the training material when ever I have space on my time, I really do my best to find time to watch it.
I know, i post a lots of questions, but between running my shop, meeting with customers doing all kind of paper work and belling, working on other software which is the main software I use to fabricate and build cabinets, and getting stuff ready for my helper at shop, there is no much time left. I do my best to figure stuff out before posting any question and always relay on professionals like you at this community to help.
you can see attached my first Test carving shape I have done it today, took only 9 minutes to be carved and cut.
I am very thankful and great full for professionals like you and others who taking time out of their busy life scheduled and help. :D

Looking good!!!

Please don't get me or anyone else on this forum wrong, when we suggest watching the Vectric tutorial videos, it's not that we mind answer questions. It's a suggestion to help reduce your frustration.

Heck I learn a lot by helping others solve their issues.

Another suggestion: Search for "grape leaf stencil". Look at the images. I find stencils to be a good source for 2D patterns .

Hi,

I always start with a search for vector files, there are ton of them already out there, why recreate the wheel?

If that fails I do a search for stencils and/or line drawings.

You want the best image you can get small and/or low resolution stuff will just give you headaches.

highpockets,
Waaaaw this looks great after the borders been added, thank you for making the words standing out more.
just let me know if you have any other words needed to be translated and I will be more than happy to get it in Arabic for you.

Have a great day. :D
