Re: Deep wood cutting with long end mill?

One other thing I should mention is I always set the Boundary Offset to the same diameter of the mill, to avoid binding. The time is a little longer but saves on breakage. Also, if I rough cut with a larger mill than my finish, i.e: 6mm rough and 3mm finish, I will also include a 6mm finish. Anythin...

Re: Deep wood cutting with long end mill?

I use 6mm and 3mm extra long (approx. 6”) all the time. However, not to break them, set the Pass Depth 35% of the diameter, the Stepover at 35% for End mill or no more than 10% for Ball mills. Feed rate no more than 100 mm/sec or Less. In fact on all of the extra long mill I have, I use the same par...

Re: Applying a base to a rotary carving.

I'm not sure if I'm following right, but if you leave a zero inch boundary offset, it will not cut past the edge of the component, leaving a stock or base.

Re: Bear

Nice looking project, Gary. The Wolf too. Did you do the modeling or import them? Thanks Steve. I got the models from Thingiverse, however, I "remodeled" them in ZBrush. The Wolf's head I chopped off and replaced it with a different, more detailed head. The Bear I re-positioned it's arms, so it was...

Eagle and Fish

Using the wings and body from the Alien and Wolf model, I came up with this one. It stands 21" tall and 16" wide. I used an Aged Bronze Metal coating for the finish.

Alien and Wolf

I was trying to come up with a "different" type of model which ended up with this Alien attacking a wolf. I told my wife that it reminded me of her brother :lol: :lol: :lol: , which she didn't take as a joke and threaten to throw it away (among other things). I ended up decapitating its head and fee...

Re: Rhino 6 3D Model Import Fails

I checked with Vectric Support when Rhino 6 came out and they didn't seem like they were going to support it anytime soon. Save it in Rhino 4 or 5 and you'll be able to import it into Aspire. They're about ready to upgrade to Rhino 7 pretty soon, which I'm liking their Rhino 7 WIP quite alot.

Re: The Maple Ring finish

It turned out well, however it will be very brittle and easy to snap in two. You may try a different material like an acrylic solid surface, such as Avonite. You will get a better finish without the fussies. Look at Randall's project: https://forum.vectric.com/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=35274 and look how...

Grizzly Bear

My granddaughter is opening up a beauty salon and I thought “Great, there’s another place I can put my projects”. I thought something out of wood or that has the metal coatings I’ve been doing wouldn’t go to well, so I thought about this Grizzy Bear using Micheal Tyler’s Marbleize Jade Technique. I ...

Re: Basic rotary question.

Since you originally started with Zero Position at the center, the Z Gap above the material may be extremely high after you re-positioned it to cylinder surface, may be why it's raising past the limits. Double check in the material setup the Z gap and reset at a lower amount. Without the file, it's ...

Re: Just Because You Can. . . . .

I guess I'm have a bad day...download is usually around 940 Mbps using Comcast. Oh, wait a minute, I just used Xfinity speed test and it's back up where it's suppose to be. I know, I had to rub it in to you guys with slow internet speed. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Re: Making animal heads

Probably one of the fast and simplest way is to download a stl file, then imported. (Adjust angle as necessary). This example was a free download from Thingiverse.
