I am trying to apply Illustrator's 3D extrude and bevel effects to 2 pie charts that I created in Illustrator. The first pie chart (with only 3 segments) worked fine. However, the second pie chart (with 8 segments) is taking on a 3D appearance, but the 3D edge is black rather than taking on the colors of each segment. I thought that it had something to do with the number of segments in the pie chart, but I tried it on other pie charts with 7, 6, 5, 4, and another one with 3 segments. Unfortunately none of them worked correctly. Also, the values in the bevel and extrude dialog box were identical for the pie chart that turned out fine and the others that did not. Any ideas?
Chances are you have chosen 'stroke' color as 'blank/empty' in the first pie chart, and 'stroke' color as 'black' in subsequent charts, by mistake. So as a result the charts are having a black outline. You simply have to select 'stroke' or 'outline' color as blank as you did in the first chart. Colors can be chosen in the 'swatches' palette, either for 'fill' or 'stroke' or both. Hope this solves the problem.

It is not unusual for the extruder to get clogged, especially when changing filament. the problem occurs when pulling the hot filament out and a tail forms within the filament channel. you can remove the stepper motor and try and pull the filament out. also unscrew the extruder tip and see if it will pull the clog out with it.
I use boiling water to clear the extruder head and it works nicely. if it is stuck in the filament tube you may need to pull the filament tube also to clear it out. it is also possible to remove the stepper motor and heat the extruder on preheat and push the tail inside the tube.
once this is done you should be able to "Load Filament" normally and once the new color id extruding your good to go.
A sliding bevel is used for transferring an angle. What matters is the angle created between the handle and the slider. For example, if you wanted to cut a piece of wood to fit in a corner but that corner is not 90 degrees true. You would loosen the nut, place the center of the bevel in the corner so the edge of the handle lays flat on one wall and the edge of the slider is flat against the other wall. Tighten the screw on the bevel. Now you can lay the bevel on the piece to be cut and mark the exact cut line so the finished piece will fit perfectly.
The sliding T bevel can also be used for setting an angle by using it with a protractor. lay the bevel on a protractor, lock the screw in place at the desired angle, then lay the bevel on the work piece and mark the cut.

To create a glow: make a copy of your image you want to glow. paste to the side or original. select original. Convert to Bitmap, then use Gaussian blur, select pixel width of blur, preview it, then apply it when it look good. Put your copied image on top of the blurred image, bringing the copied image TO FRONT. voila
NOTE change color of image to be bit-mapped BEFORE you convert to bitmap for a COLORED Glow
