I am new to CAD and Alibre. I have 2 design elements for the arm of a chair. top view and the side view. i want to combine these into a 3d image for cut out on the Shapeoko 5 CNC router.

Have you taken a look at the Alibre tutorials? There is a lot of good stuff there. There is a certain learning curve, but you can get up and running quickly.

Here's an example of time lapse modeling using multiple images.

There is a full step by step of this available as well.

Thank you for the help. I want to make these on the Shapeoko 5 CNC machine.
