Re: Praying cowboy Problem

Thanks for the quick replies gentlemen. What I have is exactly like shown in the picture. How do I correct the problem? Do I need to make the work piece larger?

Praying cowboy Problem

I downloaded the praying cowboy 3d artwork from Vectric and when I run the roughing toolpath it cuts a deep oblong hole on the edge of the artwork. Can someone please help me with this problem. I'm sure it is something simple I am doing wrong.
Thanks

Re: Butterfly Box

Thanks for the project. I have the pieces cut but when I assemble the hinge it is longer than the groove. The pieces are .497" thick. Also is there an easy way to get them glued up?
Thanks
