HI highpockets
using the oval shape created on the Drawing level is not recognized at the modeling level, I have watched the clipping boundary video and right clicking the Rectangular_0.5 does not activate the menu with the clipping option
click the oval shape is activated but when click the on the Rectangular it comes with this menu attached.
Thank you

Did you also select the vector along with the model? (Just select the desired vector before Right-Clicking the LEVEL).

It appears from your screenshot that you right-clicked the model component instead of the LEVEL.

Ok,
sorry, it took me a while to go over all this techniques but looks like almost there, also i was using the pocket, this mistake took me time to correct it by now using 3d Finish toolpath.
but now I want to arrange this around the circle, and need to group the 2 shapes but NO hope, I can not even drag both of them at the same time, due to the nature of the vector and the model, is this project now at the dead end?
Thank you.

Make sure to select both the Component and Vector then use the Circular Copy tool. Next make sure to select all the Vectors and then set the Level Clipping.

Use the Circular Copy tool. If you use the Copy Along Vectors tool you'll have to do the Vector and Component in separate steps.

after all that and still some Mistry, I have used the circular copy option and looks OK, but even after running toolpath and just to view the 3d you can see only tow shapes matching the tilt. :shock:

Can you upload your current CRV file to the forum for us to look at?

How do I upload files or photos to the forum?

The Tilt is grayed out indicating that the Tilt has not been applied to all the Components.
Delete all the Components except one of the two that has the correct Tilt and try again.

I did deleted and RE tilt so many times always came back this way, only two shapes are correct.
can not get it, if i copy perfect shape how it comes so different.
I even tried at the clipping level the update and remove options but no hope.
at the attached file i had to remove most of the 3d clipart shapes because was giving me File is to large error.
Than you
