Best Photocarve work I've seen in wood to date. Nice job! I'm also curious to know what would you use. What are your average run times with those bits? I plugged in some config info based on your screen shot and it was saying around 30 hours to cut the picture I uploaded which wasn't even complex. That seemed way too long. This was for a 5" x 8" cut.

Thanks for any info.

Hello Markus,

I have been looking at your you tube vids and these look really fantastic!

So can you give us a clue on your finishing technique yet or is it a secret? ;)

I have been trying to cut my wedding photo in maple. I can get the cut quality to look about par with yours but i keep stuffing it up on the finishing part :roll:

Looks like Markus forgot to return from Greece.
Must have been a fantastic holiday
Reminds me of when we went on a 3 month holiday to Queensland in March 99 and forgot to go home again :lol:

I just returned from Greece...i met a really nice girl and cancelled my flight back 8)

No not really...it's been a long time since i made a wood picture but i just did one the other day. I have moved to an new house and i have not done anything with the cnc-machine until now.

I made a picture of my daughter and her cousin...i think it came out nice.

Came from Copenhagen, no work there in 1958 so ended up working at Bofors :P
Lived in a little woodcutter's hut in the middle of the forest.

Yes, no power, no water just a beautiful litttle clean stream.
It was a lovely time, best summer of my life.
Got too difficult to get out there when winter came, though :cry:

You've definitely mastered the process.

I did see in one of your videos that you're running 3600mm/min (141ipm) but what are your other settings, bits you use? Any finishing tips you can share would be GREATLY appreciated by many of us.

Also, great idea for the DIY vacuum table. Sometimes things don't have to be complicated to work.

Any help for us new guys? (Or seasoned guys that would mind some pointers).
