Is it possible to invert a model?

Happy new year all, I have a model that is typical and carves well. What I'm trying to do now is create a mold (inverse ) of the model. So what is now the shallowest Z would become the deepest Z. Then a casting can be made. If I were able to reverse the Z axis I would think that would do it. Any ide...

Re: Pumpkin I

You're clearly a better painter than I am... nice job.


I was thinking about what kind of jig I would have to make to have my CNC actually do my pumpkin carving for me.....

Re: My version of a tool tray

Steve, yes as I use it I see changes I would do next time. So far the scratches have been a minimum, but it sure is a chip collector, and my 'misc' tray is overflowing.
That said, I really do like having it.

The Vectric team continues to impress me, they strive each time to do better than the last, and of course every one of them is really wond...

Re: A Rotary Project: Barley Twist Table

Another attempt, and its way off again. For the 1/8 BN " runs I dropped the feed to 59 ipm X,Y, and 9ipm Z, and after 11 hours it's about 90 degrees off in A axis. So I'm really perplexed.
