    Default Fallen warrior

    Not sure if this has been posted yet. But Chris at http://cncmilitaryemblems.com/
    has now created a 3-d file for a free download honoring our fallen soldiers and marines and other warriors. I like the amount of detail in his files. This is a file I wish was not necessary but as long as there is evil in this world our warriors will sometimes have to give all. Thanks Chris, great job.

    Stupid Question Time: I have downloaded the file, and then right clicked to get to a drop down where I can "Extract All" and then put them in a fallen soldier file, and went to open them in Aspire 3.5... can't find files that can be loaded. Next: Went to the dowload /extraction file and tried to open. Could not load data. / found no data.

    Went back to aspire and started a new file, then tried to import... again, so such luck.

    Can you head me in the right direction? I don't know a family of a recent fallen soldier, but I would like to experiment with this, and, should I know of one locally, would like to present them with a small gift of a plaque like this out of Cherry or Maple or something... ( I know it is a SMALL token... but I'd like to do it none the less).

    And if anyone had a file that I could cut that thanks a soldier/sailor/airman for their service. I would like to cut some for several young folks locally who have served- including one of my friends who was in the Guard, and a nephew who is a Marine and is about to deploy to Afghanistan...

    (Many thanks in advance.)




    OOOOOOOPPPPPS! The second time through it DID import the file. Why it didn't the first time is a mystery. The machine may still have been writing the files or something...?

    It would still be great if I could find an appropriate file ( or even just a great idea as to what might be appropriate) and set it up for some deserving people who are serving their country....

    Default glad it worked

    I have done a few military plaques. Let your imagination be your guide. 3-d always dresses up the plaque. Here is one I did for a retired Col in the army.

    Default again thanks to Chris for the artwork

    This is my first cutting with the file and it cuts great. Although I had permission to use the soldiers name I think I will keep that private.
