HOW TO MAKE A SUBDIVIDED BOWL SHAPE IN EASEL
Here is my "tutorial" for making a complex shape by combining and cutting shapes.
I found a glitch in the exploder app and I'm not sure who to tell. (See video time 6:12)
*** Figured it out in easel **** - In the video I couldn't figure out how to cut in easel. After the video I figured it out.
Place the shape which you want to cut away from the other ABOVE at ZERO DEPTH. Then Edit->Combine.
It cuts out the zero depth shape!!

In the command prompt, type:
Now when a carve is done and you are in the main easel design environment, just hit Ctrl+shift+D and type:
Hit enter (note the lack of “.1”. The “.1” sets the location. The same can be done with G30 and set with G30.1.
This works in UGS also.
