Here you go. It can be found many places on here. Do you have vectors for a non-round Mayan calendar??

Just to note:

The Aztec Calendar is a 2D process not 3D.

All you need is the vectors - you do not need a model.

There are free download files for the Aztec Sun Stone calendar and the Mayan Haab calendar on my website here:

http://www.carveonecncwoodcraft.com/downloads.html

I have also made a 3D modeled version of the Mayan Haab calendar. Have used it on a clock with the Mayan numbering system also. It should still be on the Vectric User Forums search tool under CarveOne.

I searched the forums and could not find the clock I mentioned, but here are images of my Vcarve Aztec and 3D modeled Mayan clocks. I made the model with Aspire.

A dot is equivalent to 1, and a bar is equivalent to 5. At higher numbers the bar changes to a different symbol. The numbering system is explained online if you look it up. Maybe I should have switched the dots to the upper side of the bars for the numbers 11, and 12. Aztec at the top, Mayan at the bottom.

Thanks Michael,

It appears that I DO have the 3D modeled version of the file in my website's download folder. I used a 6" diameter version on a Paradise Box top panel. The Aztec version was a bit short on detail due to the V-bit I had used at the time. The Whiteside #1540 would do a much better job of it.

You guys do realize that the old stone carvings found in South America shows a Mayan carrying an original Macintosh computer in his cloth satchel don't you? :D
