It also possible to cut slant sides on the outside of the tray too. There a preview image of that. Basically the same method as doing the 3D stars I wrote about in a different thread. Mark

Here is the crv file. Just select the preview all toolpath button, it will run the toolpaths in the right order. Mark

With a little more work to this file (by placing a couple tabs on the tray and placing two location pins in the waste area) you could cut the inside and then the flip the tray over to cut the outside. Mark

Mark, that is pretty impressive, I'll have to give that a try this week.

Thanks
