Re: Photo-V-Carve in V10

I think I was misunderstanding adding the photo-v-carve feature to V10 and in my excitement thought all of PVC was in there.

I do like what was added and I have begun playing around with it.

The the ballnose works well in PVC but wouldn't in the V10 feature.

Re: Photo-V-Carve in V10

The two that I noticed were that you can only select V-bits and not ballnose bits, also you can't change the line space to go below 100%.

I do like some of the addition of the selected vectors option though. That looks like it will be fun to play with.

Photo-V-Carve in V10

I was very pleased to see that Photo-V-Carve was added into V10. The stand alone PVC software has become one of my favorite programs to use in conjunction with Vcarve. I watched the video about it before upgrading and even saw one of my projects in the video, which I as surprised but pleased to see....

Re: Melamine

I really enjoy doing things like this with PVC, I do it slightly differently than those directions though but it's fun to try different settings and techniques to see how they turn out.

The elephant is a pencil drawing and the school is from a photograph.

Re: Eagle picture

Hi, I am just kinda getting the hang of it or at least figuring out different things with PVC. The first thing that I do is setting the background color, if the object I want to focus on is dark then I make the background white and black if it is a brightly colored object. I believe PVC works off th...

Eagle picture

Hi,

My parents are part of a local arts council and they have art shows about once a month. So I started taking their photographs that they enter and doing a version in wood with PVC. Here's my mother's eagle and my version in wood.

Re: design and make files

Hi, If you just got your Shark make sure you go to the Next Wave website and update your pendant and control software. It might have the updated versions if you just got it but if it doesn't it can cause it to just move in one direction while cutting and not stop. I updated in the beginning of this ...

Re: A house in wood.

Here's another farm house and one of my father's face. I sanded just a tad too much on the bottom right of his though :?

Re: A house in wood.

Thank you guys for liking it!

The picture was unedited. But I had to make sure it was a sunny day when I took it so the blue sky stood out between the trees. I have had to edit some other pictures to get the contrast though.

Re: Photocarve & Shark laser

Hi,

The Laser module from next wave has its own software for using the laser with lasering photographs. I've only tested it a couple times. Most of my lasering is done with Vcarve, but I do more graphics and not photos.
