Re: cutting out a 3d model

To achieve your goal you may also need to adjust the model thickness in the Properties of the component. While in the model position setup you can also click on the...

Re: WE'RE HERE FOR YOU!

By today's standards, most business don't seem to care much about their customers once they have your money. Not so with Vectric and their team. Every time I have contact with them, like this forum for one, I am completely "blown away" by their attitude, business practices, and true willingness to h...
