Design and Make Carving help

Postby slsmallcraft » Thu May 30, 2019 3:07 am

I'd like to work with some of the 3D Design and Make files. I use VCarve Pro and understand the basics of the roughing and finishing passes. What is a good combination of material (hardwood/softwood/composite) and tools? A big question I know, but I'm having trouble getting decent looking carves and am hoping for a starting point in terms of router bits and material.
Thanks! in advance....

Why don't you post a photo and a crv file of your best effort, then we can take it from there. That's much easier than a tutorial on 3D carving...
