My First Photovcarve Project

Postby bennyb » Sun Feb 10, 2013 12:32 am

Made this memorial plaque for an old high school buddy, who lost his son in a motorcycle crash. Did some editing in photoshop, then carved in vcarve pro, in 1/2 inch corian, and finished with black oneshot in the grooves and letters.

What are your settings you did for the photo? Bit, depth, spacing etc? By the way nice photo it came out good.

Thanks tony, It was orginally a photo of him and his daughter, but his expression was perfect for a memorial plaque. Had to do a lot of editing in Photoshop, but i was pleased with how it turned out.. To the best of my recollection my settings were Carving depth 0.04, Linespacing 120%, Rapid cearance gaps 0.06, 33 degree angle, 60 degree vbit, at 90% contrast. I need to make notes when something comes out good...

Benny,

I write notes all the time I do a project. I keep a folder of all my projects on my desktop. In my note I save the file, save toolpaths and put down what tool was used for roughing and finish work also profile cuts. never know when you have to make another.

I always make notes when I don't have good results too. I don't want to do "that" again.
