Trying some corian

Post by Rcnewcomb »

Found some samples of 1/2” corian on eBay. I’m trying some 3D work. The material is 7x9

+1 Randall :)
Only carved once when a visitor brought some with him, made a key fob "Moose scene 5" for him.
Held Tiny detail very well!!
Show pics when done...I only had engraving bit at that time...interested in tiny TBN cut.

Wow ! Those look really Good ! Did you have to do much clean up? If so do you just brass brush it like wood ?

Cabinet makers always have sink cutouts that are usually not used. They are not white of course but some are pretty for some uses. There is also 1/4" available online- usually white, works great on the laser as well.

These were straight off the machine. I used a 0.5mm radius tapered ball nose it at 8% step over.

I don’t mind longer machine times since I’m in the shop building acoustic guitars — so I am out there anyway. I’m glad the spindle is quiet. I wish I could say the same for my air compressors.

Very nice, Randall. I love working with Corian and other like plastics. They machine so easily.
I haven't tried doing 3D stuff yet but after seeing your results I will be trying shortly!

Where did you get the Christ artwork, if I may ask. I'd like to make one of those.

There are several versions at 3Dwave.org
