Re: Can I put a bears head here?

I hot glued the ends. If you never used hot glue before it is kind of like doubled sided tape. There is such a thing as toooooooooooo much. Don't ask how I know. I don’t have any photos of the actual carving (not certain how that happened) but I may have put clamps on the sides. Only minor pressure ...

Re: Can I put a bears head here?

Hey Scott If you are really going to try to duplicate my fixture do you want to talk directly. Maybe a ZOOM meeting where I can show you the fixture in greater detail? Maybe save you some grief? Maybe it will jog my memory enough that I can write up a "How To" pdf of my process and post it here? Not...

Re: Running issue

If I understand your question this has been reported and responded to on multiple occasions. What we see as “random” let’s go cut somewhere else is the program optimizing the cutting process.

I agree and it use to drive me crazy too. There are things you just have to accept.

Re: Creation a section view, HOW?

The best way is to use Measure / Inspect Tool.

It creates an actual vector of the profile.

Re: Help with 3D tear out

Just saw the little gouges which do not appear to be tear out.

It looking like a machine issue.

Draw a vector around the medallion and cut that area again on another piece of wood to see if the gouge happens again.

Re: Help with 3D tear out

Kid of a rule of thumb (pirate rule) not to exceed 1/2 of diameter on pass depth.

And you are right, pine is not helping.

I do all my mockup/prototypes in pink building foam. Tear out never an issue and it machines like wood.

I was unaware that main menu choices changed depending on the task and icons could appear and disappear.

Re: Can I put a bears head here?

Creating and orienting the model of tree is the real issue here. I don't have access to a 3d laser scanner so I had to improvise. There are 3 major issues concerning modeling the tree. 1) some form of digitizing method of the tree 2) orienting the tree to your bear 3) actually placing everything on ...

Re: Can I put a bears head here?

Yes. There are 2 ways that I know of. 1) This one I don't like because of the unevenness you create depending on the curvature of your log and where you place it on that log. Find the spot where you want the bear's head and zero your x, y and z there. Pretend the board is flat and cut your model str...
