Beki's Top Tip
Did you know that in Aspire you can easily create a vector cross-section of a 3D model in the 2D view using the measure tool? Simply select two points on the 2D view and the software will create a new vector that shows the corresponding cross-section of the underlying 3D model. Which is useful if you're working with broken 3D data that needs modeling.

CASE STUDY | Scott Ismail D&D Lord of The Rings Gaming Table

The works of JRR Tolkien (primarily Lord of the Rings) have been an inspiration to me most of my life, and I recently got back into tabletop gaming. That gave me a good excuse to try to design and build a dedicated gaming table for the group I play with. Considering the game (Dungeons and Dragons), it was a natural fit to make it in a fantasy theme.
