Re: Zank inlay when background is stained

Steve,
If you're looking for real Stickley finish, why not use fumed oak that was "fume" completely ?
Then the colour would be not an issue.

Re: CONVERT 2D TO 3D

The short answer is no, you would need Aspire. The longer answer is, "It depends on what the image is, and the effect that you want for the final product." Seeing the 2D image might be helpful. How do I upload files or photos to the forum? Is this something I could do using the Aspire Trial version...

Red,
If you're looking to do something like this, then you will need Aspire.

Re: Rotary modeling and toolpathing advice

If you play your card correctly , using VCarve, you can do what you want with the Moulding ToolPath.
You can adjust the shape and depth of the twist as needed.
Here's just a quick example.

Re: Tool Database Window

Kurt,
I believe it's in the "Options" window.
Go to "Edit", then "Options", and check the first three options to "Yes".
Open your Tool Data Base and make the changes you want.
Save that file and open a new session of the software.
It should remember these changes.

Re: Pricing question

No idea where you are ( Cost of living), or what you're expecting to make.
No idea what your competitors are charging or what your potential customers are willing to pay.

These are all questions that are important to know to run a successful,and profitable business.

Re: More Nodes

Here's why I needed more nodes.
The edges of the ice look much better jagged than smooth,, I think,
Thanks for all the comments.

Keep Cool

Greeting All. I'm old enough to remember the phrase "Keep Cool / Keep Your Cool" as being the popular words to say. Originally started in the mid 1950's it was in the mid 60"s that it really took hold in the language of the young people. Given the current conditions, both figuratively and literally,...

You mean something like this? With the nodes all nice and evenly spaced?

Re: More Nodes

Thanks guys for playing along. The "Fit Vectors to Curves" will change the shape of the circle so that wouldn't work as expected. And the idea of a 1/400th segment of a circle is interesting, but what happens if it's not a circle ... Again, thanks for indulging me in some way off topic stuff.. Michael

More Nodes

So, the long days at home, as we may have been dealing with, have for me, set my mind to thinking.. I know the importance of nodes and how to reduce the number of node.... But my question is,,,, Is there a way to populate a circle, with only 4 nodes, and convert it to a circle with, let's say, 400 n...
