Vector 3D Art after having prepared in Machinist
then take it to Vcarve pro and put text on it...

I tried doing this in layers but, that doesn't work

Is this possible? I looked for a tutorial for something
simliar to.....

You can but it won't look right unless that area is flat.

Couple of things to try

1) You can make a pocket on the 3D object then make the text in the bottom of the pocket

2) You can touch off the v-carve tool to the top of the 3D object and just engrave. The engraving will be on a flat plane and might look strange.

Aspire has a feature that we can project to a curved surface - but I don't think V-Carve Pro can do that.
