Hack of the week 222 Frame

Post by Grif63 »

I am a newby at 3d carving. I purchased hack 222 and carved the assembly art with no problem. I then tried the frame and added other carvings to create a new plaque design. My question is how can I change the depth of frame. If I add new artwork into the frame and try to carve it, the rough pass will take several layers off board first before carving for the object. I end up with a very thin backing and barely have enough material for carving letters. If I try to carve the frame to use as a background for lettering it is the same problem, carves very deep with little left for lettering. Is there a tutorial that could help with this or any ideas. Thank you.

I did figure it out. I played with software and found the wrench in modeling and was able to change the cut depth there. Thanks for everyones consideration.
