Project Showcase / Bear Carved Door
« on: August 04, 2016, 09:30:49 AM »
With LOTS of help from Laney I was able to learn the process for setting up a model carve. This is the middle part of a door panel, it will be glued up to another panel for a total thickness of about 2" and then trimmed out for the door. It will have a window above the bear. The wood is beetle kill pine. 

Vectric Aspire 2.5D / 3D / Help needed in setting up a raster carve
« on: July 05, 2016, 07:00:54 PM »
I have done a boat load of vector and pocket cuts and very few raster type carves. The raster carves I have done were very small sized but still took way longer than expected. Most likely do to the settings I used in setting up the carve.

Now I have a large project in want to do. It is a grizzly bear breaking through a door. See image... This will be done for an actual door for a good friend.

What I need is some guidance for best settings to use.

I am using Aspire for the design and tool path set up and cnc usb controller software at the machine.

Looking forward to the phone call that my new machine is at the shipping center so I can go pick it up and add it to my shop.

A little about me.....

 I  have 2 CarveWright machines (owned since 2007) and I am a independent sales rep  for the CW system. I also make and sell the dust collection attachment THE DC-INSERT for the machine. Do not look for me to be pushing the system here on the DWC forum but more that willing to answer any questions anyone might have about it..  ::) I also dabble in the 2 1/2D /  3D pattern making.

I am adding the DWC to my shop so that I can expand and have the capability to do more aggressive type projects that are more suitable to the larger cnc machines.

Now off to start learning....
