Re: 3D preview

The co-ordinate system is the same in the 2D window and 3D window so if you look on the status bar at the bottom you can match up X and Y positions once you've found a Z thickness (also displayed in the status bar) that does the job. Thank you Adrian Yes that will work… still think the guide lines ...

3D preview

Is it possible to display rulers and guidelines in the 3D preview, this would come in handy when placing keyholes on the bottom side of a model so you know the thickness of the material you have available.

Laser files

Hi Todd,

Are you guys looking at providing “laser ready” files like 3DWave, I have purchased a number of these image files over the last month.

Thanks

So very cool. I will need to try them.
They are great and worth the cost… I have scaled them up to 600 x 400mm without any problems.
When I started using them they had a couple of images now they are up to 91 and bring out new images almost every day.

They are high resolution BMP files. I've not tried one yet
When purchased you download jpeg, bmp and png versions…. I have only used the png versions.
