Re: I guess I lied

I said in an earlier post that I was done for the year, I guess I lied. I have made both of my grandson's many, many things and thought I could get by not making them something for X-mas. I was wrong, feeling guilty. I got this one ready to seal and glaze, and am cutting the other one now. Now I wi...

I just did a sign for a little girl's room. The key words were mermaid, and loves purple. I hear that is a phenomenon with little girls. So this even includes purple glitter paint for the lettering and border. :D

Re: Which model should I use

It's an artistic choice really. A recessed model is designed to mimic the look of hand cut chisel edges to the recess in which the model sits and the dish is a perfect concave shape which the model sits in. My personal preference from a pure machining point of view is to use dish models as you can ...

Ron, I believe the bottom row of colors in the color pallet are saved colors that have been used. You can click on one of those to get one of the custom colors that you have used.
Thank you I shall look into it

A question for all you resin inlay guys. From what I have seen, most users are using Epoxy Resin for their resin inlay projects. Anyone using Polyester Resin. I’ve used polyester resin for years laying up fiberglass models and like to shorter cure time as opposed to the longer cure times with epoxy...

Preview - Toolpath color

When selecting the color from "more colors" and assigning this color to the toolpath..... it would be handy if the color selected was remembered in the displayed pallet for the next toolpath.
Or is there a way to remember a custom color already?
Thanks
Ron
