I am still relatively new to Vcarve Pro, doing lots of online tutorials, YouTubes etc. I plan to design furniture.
I'm getting comfortable with the basics, but a slightly more advanced design idea has me totally stumped. In a nutshell, I want to design a table top in the profile/outline of a particular lake, but I want the outline of the lake to be, say, 0.15" higher than the table top so that there's a ridge along the profile (in other words, if you rolled a marble on the table top, it wouldn't roll off the table due to the small ridge). I also want that 0.15" rise to be rounded and graceful rather than just pocketing it out and leaving a 90 degree angle, which I could do with a simple offset.
I already vectorized the outline of the lake, and I know from testing that it cuts simple profiles and pockets well. How do I make the rounded ridge that I described? Is this actually 3D stuff and therefore requires Aspire? FWIW, I am trying to do this with Fusion 360 too, but to no avail...
Alternatively, could I solve this problem with a specialty bit that would essentially create an internal roundover and then pocket out the rest normally? If so, any ideas where I find something like that?
