    If you have not done attachments since July 9th, I have a lesson in my "Download" section on the revised method, which is now in place(dated 7/9/2010).

    Your problem, at present, is that the side is not a "Closed" figure. Therefore, you do not get the Carve Region option.
    Highlight the side figure, and then click VIEW > TOGGLE NON_ENDPOINTS.
    You will see the red dot where the two points do not quite touch. As soon as you slightly move the dot, it will GLOW. That means you have closed the figure. Then there will be no red dots. You may then apply the carve area.
