V 9

Purchased the upgrade. Says it comes with bonus clipart, but can't find it after download. Does anyone know what the bonus
looks like, there is no description of what it is so it makes it hard to find it.

Re: Cropping a model

that in the tutorials for aspire the Mantel Assembly video around 14:45 mark gives step by step
instructions.
Thanks

Re: Best wood to cut

Try Maple, cheap, readily available and carves nice for me but the best I've used

try 3d as it works well with v-carve pro projects.

Re: editing 3d file

Yep e07 is one of the tutes that says on disc only/ buy aspire. So its not available through their web site, I have to wait for my disc to arrive before I can watch it.
