I'm somewhat familiar with 2 1/2 D stuff but sounds like you need 3D $oftware. There is much discussion on this forum: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CAD_CAM_EDM_DRO/messages I would suggest joining up over there and searching their archives....you're gonna need it.

ps: If you're able to make a go of it, please share your knowledge, pix, etc. with us.

Hello Dan,

Have a look at www.deskproto.com
A 30 day version can be downloaded from this very nice program.

Time enough for som 3D experiment.
