Thought you might like to see what can be done with Aspire in stone.

The head is 1800 mm wide by 300 mm high and the detail has a depth of 22 mm, the detail was draw up in Aspire 4 taken from an old image.
There are many problems using stone due to the abrasiveness wearing out cutters but I rough down with a 52 mm diamond then with a 20 mm diamond and finally with 12 mm self ground / shaped tungsten cutter.
D.O.C. 2 mm x 50% stepover on the 52 dia, 1 mm x 70% stepover on the 20 dia, finishing cut 6 mm x 0.02 stepover took a long time to finish.

This one was smaller but much more detailed.

Most impressive! I don't think I have the nerves to do a job like that.
