But what I am finding out is that plywood splits super bad, and when you go down to specific depths, it may change color on you. In most cases I would like that, but sometimes it does just a h...

Stacking BMP's

Is it possible to stack 2 bmps in VCARVE and if so how do I go about doing that? I have one bmp that I want in the background (example: say something like trees) and then I have a bmp I want in front of said trees. Can you put 2 in the same image?

Re: Can't grasp stacking text

Thank you for your response, I thought wow that really makes sense to have to group those letters back together. I know I have got to be making this harder than what it actually is. I have taken images of the steps that I have taken so that maybe you can see what it is that I am doing incorrect. I r...

Re: Can't grasp stacking text

Thanks so much for responding Fleming..Yes I tried your tutorial too. I get the first pocket done great with no problems. Then I go to my 2nd text on layer 2 and highlight it and convert it to curves. Next I highlight both text and this is where it all goes south. I start to deselect the islands and...

The latest thing we did was to put MDF on top of the plywood just to be able to screw the board down to it but I don't really like doing that because we ...

I've spent 2 full days selecting and deselecting and just can't get it. Can anyone do a step by step tutorial with pictures...
