Re: Project you're proudest of ???

For me, the projects I am most proud of are the one that I get to see the finished product. Showing my model, with the talents of people like Scott, has only kept me in awe of what others can do. The end results are awesome. Thanks Scott for pushing me to think in a different scale . Michael Dragons...

Re: Origin Problem

Peter,
Not sure, but from what I see, it appears that the left and bottom areas are the same in both the VCarve file and your screen shot.
Maybe your setting in the machine software needs to be looked at.

Re: Origin Problem

Peter,
What do you mean by align the toolpaths?
What you're seeing is that your machine x/y is at the bottom left and the vectors in the file are as positioned.
Is it that you want the vectors to align to the left and bottom sides ?

Re: Rotary Model (mallet) Guidance required

You may want to try the molding toolpath option.
It looks like it would be quicker using your same settings

Re: cutting to deep

Your Code shows the maximum cut depth is 0.75" If you've set the measurements correctly then the next possible reason is that your machine is losing steps. I have seen this happen when stepper motors start to fail. My I ask what machine and software you're using that you tell it the thickness of the...

Please remember

Another model idea that's been sitting on my desk for some time.
I finally got around to developing it.
Zip file contains a STL, with and without the wording, as well as the EPS of the words for V-Carving

Free to those who could find some use for it.

Re: Odd question with copied STL's

I would compare the G-Code between the first STL and the second.
If they are exactly the same ( except for eh location of the parts ) then it would be an issue with the machine controller.

'Just an idea,

Beautiful work Michael!
The carving shadows almost look as if undercut - did you do any hand undercutting?
No undercutting,,,a small bit of sanding and a quick stain.
I think I got really lucky with the wood..,,,,,Next time, i'm not so sure..

Thanks

Re: Warrior 1

Doug,
It's just the "simple" process on drawing the vectors, creating the 3-D shapes and learning how to use the sculpting tool.
I know, it's really not that simple, but these are the bsics steps.
