Re: Wood warping after carving

Wow. Thanks for the helpful suggestions! As you can tell, I'm a little out of my element here. I'll now look into how to determine old growth from rapid growth. The three pieces that are glued together were all from one (roughly 12' long) board. Also, noted on the direction-of-grain suggestion. In t...

Wood warping after carving

Hi everyone. I purchased a 3D model of a Byzantine cross for carving. I've carved it once before, out of Mahogany, and it came out great. This time, I carved it out of cherry. I glued up three strips of cherry wood that were approximately 8" x 36", giving me a blank of 24" x 36". I ended up carving ...

Re: 3D Carving - Roughing boundary?

Now that the finishing toolpath is 2/3 done, I think I know what it is. Around the edge is a small upward-sloping ridge, right near the edge. I could not discern it in the model, but can see/feel in in the finished part. Now, my concern is whether or not it will break off when I do it in wood. In th...

Re: 3D Carving - Roughing boundary?

I am using a 1/4" bit for roughing, and originally I had a 0.2" boundary offset. I thought that might be it, so then I re-calculated the roughing toolpath with a 0.135 offset. No difference.

I then tried it with 0.00 boundary offset, with no difference.

3D Carving - Roughing boundary?

I everyone. I'm new to 3D work, so please bear with me. I do not understand why the roughing toolpath is doing what it is doing. I am wanting to carve an Orthodox cross, and the roughing toolpath leaves approximately .125 of a border on the outer edge of the model (see image). That leaves a lot of m...
