Re: USS Ranger CV-61

Thanks Tom, i always enjoy hearing from you and Mike as well. This is how I matched the profiles: 1. Create a bounding vector around the desired face. (make sure to cut this as thin as possible) 2. Take the right side profile (this example) and clip the left side span from it. 3. Use that profile wi...

USS Ranger CV-61

Sorry I haven't been as active on the forum lately but my schedule has me stretched pretty thin. Plus I haven't been doing anything unique/different from my previous posts. I believe this build may qualify for unique and is note worthy. The carve time only took about 8 hours but the setup was extens...

Re: Clean Edges

Agree with all said. Something that may help is to use the offset option with the profile toolpath. Use a negative offset to cut inside the initial cut, and just enough to remove your deflection issues. Make sure to change the number of passes to one so you cut it out in one pass. If your profile si...

Re: Para Rescue Flash

Wow!!! Brian, Thanks so much for that complement. My head will not fit through the door now. :D To answer your question though (only speaking for myself); I don’t feel very lucrative, mainly because of my target audience’s income. I think the better money is in the quick mundane projects that are sl...

Para Rescue Flash

The USAF Para Rescue Flash I think the name needs no explanation. This emblem is displayed on the brae. There are about 20 hours of modeling time, 4 hours of file set up plus another 5 hours of cut time and 3 days of assemble and finishing. I would like to think that this is one of my better shadow ...

Re: The Biltong / Beef Jerky cutter

Great idea Mike. You could make three different attachments and attract even more customers. Nothing like having a little jerky and cheese with my cigar. :lol: What about a nut cracker?

Re: The Biltong / Beef Jerky cutter

Oh yes nice job. I don't smoke cigars but if you added a raiser you would have a pretty cool cigar cutter too.

Re: Need Help With Modeling

This is what I think is going on. When you create a cookie cuter vector (create vector from component) you are also creating vectors that surround the inner components. When you select the outer vector your are also selecting underlying inner vectors that are grouped to the outer vector. Just right ...

Re: Tear Out Prevention

Thanks for getting back Chris, the most important part is to step the pocket relief in about .001 so when the bet travels around for a final cut it doesn't hit the corner. I'm sure you will see better results for the effort. Please let me know how this works out.
