Re: Increase resolution beyond "very high?

As far as time is concerned I have found the the tool path calculation time takes more time while using higher resolutions. But as far as cutting goes the time of cut remains unaffected.

Re: Chest

Very nice job. I'm interested in the interior lid lifts. Do you have a name/source I can search? Thanks

Check if the correct files are created in the location specified. If not create folder.

Re: 3D Edge Cut Scallops

It's possible that they will translate. Aspire does not do well with 90 degree edges. Try giving them a slight angle on the edge by utilizing the draft function and or the smooth tool.

Re: 3D Edge Cut Scallops

Each one of these divots were repeatable and later associated with nodes. After cleaning the bounding vector the file cut clean.

Re: 3D Edge Cut Scallops

Thanks all for your input. So I understand correctly, the model view after simulated cut will be some what accurate as far a edge detail? The preview is an excellent representation of what is programmed to be cut. I look at your situation like this (because I'm illiterate to G code). Every time you...

Re: 3D Edge Cut Scallops

Paul is on the mark with that. I had this problem resurface with me. I extensively retuned my machine and nothing helped. Someone reminded me to look at my model one more time. If you look at your bounding vector (the vector you used to create the toolpath) you will most likely see hundreds of nodes...

Re: From my clip art library

I'm with you Chris, I'm not suggesting you change anything. In the end we all pay our own bills and have to feel comfortable giving our clients a quality product. If we make sure they walk out the door feeling they have been treated fairly business will continue coming our way.

I donate most of my Artwork as it's military related. The funny part is I try to keep it on the cheap and free is pretty damned good. Mind that it is in loo of a project and I am not providing the models to the client. The real issue comes when I am volunteering my work and get nothing but changes r...

Re: Can I make a jigsaw puzzle from PhotoVCarve pic?

You could create vectors to give the shape of the pieces you want & then profile cut on the line but you will obviously have gaps the size of the bit you are cutting with so isn't ever going to give you a very tight fit between pieces. A laser might be a better tool for this type of work rather tha...

Re: From my clip art library

Hi Chris, Thanks for the thought. Of course I would consider any referrals but my back log gets pretty full as far as modeling goes. I can't make any promises that I could schedule extra work. This may be a good time to bring up pricing. I know this has been discussed for machine time but I haven't ...

Re: Can I make a jigsaw puzzle from PhotoVCarve pic?

Do to the radius of your bits I would suggest using two or even three pictures. Import your pic and create the vectors for your puzzle. Cut all the apposing pieces from one pic then cut the other and so on and so on. If you don't have vacuum table that could be a problem as well. It would take a lot...

Re: Eagle

Fantastic, I have always contemplated doing a 3D piece like that but……This is most impressive, the thought process involved in finishing this piece had to incredible. My head is spinning how well everything matches up. Please give more details on your cut process?

Re: Coat of Arms,

Very nice Michael, The depth and detailing are fantastic unfortunate that the rays from the Quarter sawn are lost in the carving.
