Trace BitMap Outcome

Post by knowlzy0791 »

Ran across a thread yesterday about Tacing BitMaps. Had no idea how it worked so I got to messing around with it and kind of got the gist of it. Here is what I was able to come up with on my first go around with it.

Found the picture on a google search and just ran with it from there. Don't have any bits smaller than .25" so it could definitely be more precise but you gotta work with what you've got!

That's pretty cool. Is it aluminum? Can you share info on the bit, feed speed and plunge rates?
Did you use any lubricant?

Nice trace. Did you do individual pockets or did V carve translate the different depths?
Best wishes, - Bill

It is UHMW-PE. I used .25" end mill. Feedrate was set at 300IPM and i ended running about 55% of that. Plunge rate of 30IPM. No lubricant as it is poly.

Individual pockets and just played around with the depths to create "layers". Most complicated thing I have done so I'm sure there is plenty of room to improve.

Ordered a .125" bit and added lettering on 2 other designs so I'll be tryying those out later this week. Will update when they are done!

Was able to get my bit and finish putting the text in
