Re: Project you're proudest of ???

Great post Scott. Too hard for me to choose. Most proud of making a frame for my daughter’s college diploma. I get to do it again now that she has a Master’s. Others that come to mind are a Russian Orthodox cross for my Mother made on the day of her passing. A wedding box for my brother, log cabin b...

Re: Cutting a 3D profile along linework

Not in V-carve. You need Aspire or another 3D program to generate an stl to use in V-carve.

Thanks Bobtail. Just completed sharpening on my 5th saw today. Took a small rip filed saw and converted it to a cross cut saw.

Yes, you should also let us know Ron what do you have the feed rate and plunge rate set for the V-bit at in your tool database. Sounds like you’re both frustrated about not getting the correct ti...

Re: Mixed 2d and 3d import

Really cool project and love that wood. Only thing I would have reservations about is the end piece. Very thin through end grain. Maybe zebra wood is tougher than I know as I haven’t worked it. Super idea and design..

Re: Post Top

Hi Mike,

How do you get 8 set up for a profile cut? 4 faces, 4 turns of the post going full around the top, half the depth.

Re: Importing logos and image files so they can be vectorised!!!

My goto has become my iPad, an Apple pencil, and an app from Autodesk called sketchbook. I import the photo there, trace what I want on another layer in black lines, bring the black line jpeg into Aspire let it draw the vectors and go. Works well for me.

Re: New handle for old saw

Good for you Scott, a well won prize. I didn’t cut down my apple tree yet. It appears that the top is dead, but the bottom half sprouted all new leaves this year. So I’ll just keep collecting the branches that fall off the top for now. And you got me thinking about a solar kiln. I built a solar box ...

Re: Trouble closing vectors

Vectors can only be joined end to end. So you can’t join the end of one to somewhere in the middle of another. You’ll have to trim the lower one, select both vectors with the mouse and the shift key pressed. Then you can select join. The program is closing the vector, which is what you need to happe...

Re: Post Top

I agree with Ted, profile cut it on a little more than half way through and turn 90° and repeat. Take a long time to 3D cut that and you’ll still have to flip it anyway.
