Re: We Will Do This

Attached is my effort with the piece. Thanks for the file. I carved it in a piece of maple with a .06" TBN bit and applied two coats of sanding sealer before painting with paint pens. I set the component height to .625" in a 1" thick piece. It carved nicely with minimal finishing. Final two coats of...

Thanks, Michael. That was a great overview of the two-rail sweep and its major features.

Re: 3D Reliefs free

After donating the $2 I finally did get an email from the vendor with instructions and I was able to download the file. It looks pretty good in Aspire, but I haven't tried carving it yet. I still need to check out the other pages.

Re: 3D Reliefs free

I tried donating $2 using Paypal and it showed I had donated, but still could not download anything. I guess I will forget it for now.

Re: 3D Reliefs free

I have the same issue as XRAY except all the download links take me to a page that says the page is not available. I don't see any links that are red. All mine are green and won't allow downloads. ???

Re: Text on a chair rail profile

I use that technique to do various carvings on pieces of wood slabs. The slabs are free and many have unique features from worm trails and bark staining. The carvings have been popular. I create a component that represents the slabs contours and then add the carved component onto the slab. I only ca...

Re: add limit plane

Thanks for the replies. I like Gary's method and will try that. The object I created in Aspire was symmetrical and I just copied one side to the other, but I needed to cut past the sides far enough to eliminate the cusps left by the ball nose bit. I kind of got what I was looking for by giving the z...

add limit plane

I created a component in Aspire and need to cut past the zero plane for a two sided object. I have used the import function to create two sided components and understand the limit plane and zero plane relationship, but don't know how to add a limit plane to a component created directly in Aspire v10...
