Re: Anybody for a round of Golf?

This guy was confused on how to hold a club, so I fixed it. His handicap should improve greatly.

Anybody for a round of Golf?

The 3D model came from Stetchfab. After I carved it, I coated it with Bronze Metal Power. The golfer stands 16-inches plus additional 4-inches for the golf club. Since the club and hat was very thin, I 3D printed those.

Re: US Flag Theme Lectern

Nice job and contribution Richard. Since I would go broke if I was a painter, I was quite interested how you painted it.

Re: Text is backwards on rotary axis

I had the same problem. It's in the configuration of the A motor, however I'm not at the computer that has the Mach3 to tell you where it is. Another quick way is to mirror the letters in the project before milling and/or turn the rotary end to end, where the head is at the foot of the cnc machine i...

Re: Back up your files!

I also set up a cloud backup with 2TB of storage to automatically and continuously back up my critical directories. Here, here. That's only smart. I've have automatic backup, storing my critical files, especially my financial records using Norton, which is also my virus protection. I also put all m...

Re: V Carving 1mm above material

A lot of times when you're setting zero, without a touch plate, the second bit may indent deeper into the material at a deeper distance causing the finish pass to be that much higher. My touch plate on my machine was defective so what I did was get a piece of metal that measured 5mm then lower the s...

Re: Woodply Bitcoin

With the price of Bitcoins, you should be able to get enough from them to buy you a bigger and nicer machine. :D :D :D
Nice Job by the way.

Re: All finished

I just modeled one using Aspire and using Aspire's clipart, based from a diagram I got form Popular Mechanics. But afterwards I realized I better get the electric guitar parts before I do the cutouts to make sure all will fit. Where did you get yours? Did you have a pattern for the cutouts? Thanks G...

Re: Custom Brush Sculpting

I just received the following from Vectric Support: The sculpting works with the pixels in the model so the actual size a sculpting brush will appear is dependent on the relationship between the modelling resolution and the model size. The 301 references the pixel size. So for example, if you had a ...

Custom Brush Sculpting

I've been playing around with the custom brush sculpting, which seems to be great with one exception. Using Aspires clipart, I made a custom brush of a duck, but when I apply it, the largest size I can get is 25mm. I can't find a way to increase it. Before creating it, I tried different sizes and th...

Re: Plane cut 3d model above a specific Z value

When you import a model as a double sided project, it will ask for an Overcut Distance. The figure will be a negative distance past the zero plane. If you later want to change the distance, click the zero (limit) plane and going into its component properties (crescent wrench icon) and you can adjust...
