BILL J wrote:Awesome stuff. Im curious...does this software/book teach you how to alter or edit an existing 3d obj file. I have a 3d laser scanner (first virsion Next Engine) and I can scan existing 3d objects but alway couldnt fugure out a clean way to cut those objects up to put them on the flatbed cnc. For example...If I scanned the statue of liberty I would need to remove the arms from the wiremesh digital model and make seperate cut files in order to actually mill them.
also I need a good way to patch holes on the digital model that the scanner may have missed.
If this is the way to go and it works then I will move forward with educating myself.

I'm doing prototypes in discarded MDF, and I'm looking for a quick build up that can be smoothed and look photo-worthy when done, and I don't want to spend more time that I absolutely have to, because I've got at least 5 others I want to cut now!
adamfritzsche wrote:First off, very inspiring work! I am trying to wrap my head around how the cuts are accomplished. You mentioned that they were done in 4" thick slices, but my question is, how would you get the detail on the sides? Is 4 sided machining somehow used here along with slices or is there some manual detailing on those parts? Or am I just overthinking this alltogether?
