    Getting myself ready for Valentine's and i wanted to give my wife something special. So special that i had note tried before... 3D carving 2 sides.

    Decided to give Aspire 9 a try since it now offers some special options to easily achieve this.

    The video goes to trough the process in Aspire and then the carving itself.

    In essence:
    - Add a new document to aspire, setup your stock size. Make sure you select "Double Side"
    - Import your graphics, use the vectorize options if needed
    - Go to the modeling tab and choose " Create shape from vectors "
    - Play with the settings to achieve the desired shape.
    - Once done a Components will be created. Right click on it and choose "Copy to other side".
    - From here go to create toolpath. I used 3D finishing only, the correct would be to use a roughing toolpath first.
    - Make sure you create a toolpath for each side.
    - Export gcode and then send to the machine

    ** Please note that i did not use any dowels to register my stock and make sure it was aligned once i flipped it. I should have as it moved very slightly.
