Beki's Top Tip
Did you know you can select multiple nodes and transform all of the spans from straight lines to beziers! Simply select your vector(s) and put them into node edit mode (by pressing N on the keyboard) then select the nodes you wish to transform and press B on the keyboard. This will turn the spans into bezier spans!

Michael Tyler's FREE Project - The REAL Box Turtle

This month’s free project courtesy of Michael Tyler is a REAL Box Turtle (so sorry for the pun - ummm, not really)!

Michael figured, why not make a “box turtle” instead of just a regular box? After making some sketches of a “cute” turtle caricature he created this awesome functional “dad joke” project!
Fun to make, this unique novelty item is a “box like no other” and should bring a smile to all who see it!

Aspire features used while designing include import a bitmap photo of my own box turtle sketch, drawing and node editing tools, interactive trim, Weld Vectors, and the modeling and sculpting tools.

Compatible with Aspire, VCarve Pro and VCarve Desktop V10.5+
