    Is anyone willing to scan the object shown in the pic for me. I need to have an object scanned so that i could make a copy of it and I don't have the scanning probe.Click image for larger version.

    That looks easy enough to make in Designer. It would be smoother than a scan. Post another pic more form the side and I will give it a go.

    Here is an example of what Designer can do. (What is it anyway?)

    That looks great my concern is that they want to make a mold to reproduce the piece and I need to get the dimensions quite accurate. I wasn't sure about the radi of the corners, and the flats on the inside and outside are different dimensions the half round is a 1/4" round over. Its a type of gasket. I will need the whole figure but only half of the depth since I need to make 2 mirror carves. I will post a picture when I get home from work. Thank you

    Seems like the long way around the barn to me. If you want to make a mold and you have the piece to reproduce you don't need a Carvewright. You just need some mold making materials. Cast a mold of the original. Maybe I am missing something.

    Or, the CW could be used to directly make the mold.

    That is exactly what I'm trying to do but I suck with designer and thought it would be easier to scan. I am attaching a schetch if you would like to try it. On the depths it would only need to be half of course because I will carve two mirror halves.

    I used Designer 3 with the sweep to make the pattern and then made a 1.188 mpc. The arch at the top is just a guess. See what you think. It can all be tweaked as I am sure it will need to be.

    I can't thank you enough for doing this for me it saved me more time than you could imagine. I can't tweek the figure when I click on it all I get is the rectangular outline of the entire figure. Any Idea why
