    Dan, I must be dense, cause I do not understanding how do I get the front and back as a whole pattern, and how do I get the conform box up and the feather tool is the one that looks like a feather if I'm right. Steve your input on the pattern is great The only problem I have is I want to learn on how to do it I don't want someone doing it for me. All Of the Input is greatly appreciated...Thank you !!

    You can not make a front and back a pattern, only each side.

    Conform in for vectors applied to a carve area.

    Feather will appear when you make a carve region or a pattern.

    Floyd, I have the patterns loaded into my STL files now my next question is the thickness on my working pattern is 1.755 on the back side of the pattern how do I get the two patterns to produce three boards to do the splicing. Bear with me gents I'm getting closer....

    Here is an STL of an elliptical bowl. It is a real 3d object. Import it into the STL importer. Fool around with the orientation (so you are looking into the bowl) and then make the thickness (z) 2.25 so it will slice into 3 X 0.75. Just play around. Go back and forth. It takes awhile to figure out how to get what you want.

    I do not know what that means. You have to save it to your hard disk first and then import it from inside Designer. Have you imported STL's before?
