rectangle to select the cutting size (along with surfacing and the border it cuts etc.). This
*should* only cut the area you select.
I do know for a fact that you can select certain areas to cut, with certain tools, in certain
orders in Modela Player 4. But it didn't take to my PNC-3000 too well as that software is

I've also uploaded some Roland manuals for Virtual Modella and for 3DEngrave.
