Hi all, I dowloaded a free vector art file which I was able to pull some texture from. I created some vectors from that, added flat shape height, and proceeded to use the sculpting tools and not too long after I had a nice carving. I ended up going back and doing some sculpting and carving some out of cherry. I used a offset roughing with a raster angle of 90 to go with the grain of the wood for finishing. 6mm EM to clear and 1/16" tapered ball from amana tool. Then It was profile cut through with an 1/8" EM. Any tips on CV settings for mach 3 would be helpul by the way, I am rookie cnc machinist. Thanks for any suggestions.
Thanks fellas! Thats what I've been reading on the cv settings. Itworks great (for what it is) but shakes a little more now that its not rounding the corners at faster speeds. Maybe i weld a few more supports for the base to keep everything a bit tighter. Thank you
As for cv settings as Ted has said it really is about a bit of trial & error, so many differences from machine to machine that using someone else's settings won't give the best results for your machine unless you got really lucky
Thanks Martin, I found out a little late but I had to make a lotus flower instead so Im carving that out now I toned down my acceleration and adjusted my cv distance units again. seems a little less shaky. Maybe I tone down my accel a little more.
