I am useing vcarave pro 8.5.. Does it matter where the index holes are out put on the spoilboard as long as they are a copy of the top?? thanks for any info.. Looks like 9v has some good things in it.

gpeck,
You have to make sure that your index holes are symmetrical around x=0, y-o. Otherwise, your top and bottom patterns will not line up properly.

Kevin
