3d Clipart Not Working

Postby javelin » Wed Jul 11, 2018 3:17 am

When I say that the 3d clipart is not working, I mean it will not double click nor will it drag and drop into the project. It will not add to the job in any way.

I can add 2d vectors with no issues at all. Yet any 3d clipart is treated as if it does not exist. Anyone have any idea what is going on or how to solve this issue?

I believe you may need to import the model. Not sure, but it would depend on the type of file

Do you mean the models that are supplied with the software or other models in formats such as STL, OJB ?? :lol: :lol:

To recast your sentences without the occurrences of "it". 3d clipart can't actively double-click or drag-and-drop nor add themselves to anything.:

You need some rewrites to give us more information. Some prepositions would help: where are things being dragged and dropped from? Where are they being double-clicked on?

How about a screenshot? Microsoft "Snipping Tool" is good for that: https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/help/13776/windows-use-snipping-tool-to-capture-screenshots Snipping Tool seems to be installed by default from Windows 7 onward.

Having the same problem no folder at the bottom of the page it says design and make and when you click on it, it sends you to the website. Just downloaded it a month or so ago and this is the first time I've had time to use it. Any solutions.

After you download each set of clip art you need to run the file to install it.

Once you have the model on screen you have to export it as clipart to a folder on your system, like the Design and make folder on your computer. It doesn't automatically download into that folder.

Have you downloaded the clipart ? It doesn't install with the main program, all the different category folders will be in your portal the same as the main program.
As Randall has said once you have downloaded it you need to install it same way you would install any other software. Once installed you should be able to view it in the main program & use it. The Design & make folder will be empty until you either buy some models from them of download some of the free projects they supply. You should be able to see the free projects you can download if you log in to your portal account :lol: :lol:
