Suggestion CMC design help

    Hi all,

    It's been a hectic few months up here in the north. We recently moved our business, sold the unit we were working out of, leased a new larger space, and did all the renos ourselves!

    Now I'm a little stuck with a CMC project for a friends mother. I'm working with a triple mat for the project. The top mat has some debossing and three cut outs. The second mat only has the three cut outs that provide the accent colour for the piece, and the bottom mat is the mat I'd like to get the pen tool to write on (Wizard 9000). I can't seem to get the software to write on the bottom mat for some reason. It keeps trying to write on the top mat within the area I've asked it to cut out for the window to show the font on the bottom mat.

    Sounds like an easy solution, I'm just not sure what it is! :confused:

    Hope everyone is having a gorgeous fall and you're all enjoying the beautiful colours. :D

    you could do it in 2 steps, make one mat that is just the bottom layer, then creat a double which is layer 2 and 3, and just do the maths for the opening of the double

    As above or take it in to path trace and then designate it to print on layer 3
