Coat Of Arms - "Aspire"-ing to improve all the time

Post by Stonemason101 »

Coat of arms.jpg
I was commissioned to do this for a client.
Rhodesian Teak with Gold leaf and Antiquing gilding paste.
The model build was a lovely challenge. Still lots of room for improvement though!!
Hope it gives someone "Aspire"-ations!
Cheers Kevin

Great job Kevin.

Is this one piece carved are did you carved the pieces gild them and apply them to the plaque?

What is the overall size of this. You used a 20 deg V bit. At what depth. How long did it take. It is very nice.

I like heraldry also. You inspired me to try one. I will be doing it soon. Funny I came up with about the same size as you. 16"x20". I am showing running time at about 16 hours. Lets see what I get.

You need to increase the feeds and speeds of your hand finishing. jk LoL

:D Would you please post the aspire code used to make this project. I would like to try this and would use your Aspire code as a starting point. I have done smaller similar things in the past but my carving times were much longer, as much as 18 hours, so you must have a better mastery of Aspire than I do.

I like very much your beautiful artwork, congratulation. But less then 7 hours of carving with a Vgroove 20 degree with all your components and a maximum depth of 15mm it impossible for me to do that. I would like your secret. I had done a simulation of a part of your work(without florish and helmet) and it took more then 8:30 hours:

Just to groove witn a end mill .25 F:100 Pl:30 stepover 25% Pocket 1
07:16:21
Banner 3D Finish 1
00:18:41
Lion 3D Finish 2
00:55:44
I like that kind of work but I spent a lot more time. 99% of my artwork are only for gifts but it's not a raison to take a lot more time to do it.

I wonder where you purchased your Vbit because I have many, but it is not robust enough to make cuts up to 15 mm.

I hope receive some information and hints. Excuse me for my English I am a french Canadian and I need more practice to write better.
