Aztec Star Wars dial

carved in mdf and finished to look like aged copper, 600mmX600mm


That is awesome. Did you design this? I would kill for that file to carve.

the original image used isn’t mine but I did create the .dfx file and heavily edited it to make it work better for carving

have added file to projects


I have posted the .dfx file to several cnc facebook groups over the last few weeks so I’m not surprised

Where in projects? I might give this a try :smiley:

EDIT: Nvm They really need a search feature in projects, lol. thanks!

Where did you finally find the file? I am still looking…LOL

Wow! Hard to believe that that is MDF!

There is a search feature - sort of… Just open "All Projects"and give it a moment to load and then go to the browser’s menu bar - edit - find or find in page. Type “star wars” in the find box.


Wicked great Job

have done a normal Aztec dial as well but got the aged copper efect just right this time


Awesome!!! Im gonna make one even though I keep telling myself Im goning to get away from making round things. They call to me I guess

Thank you. I was searching in the Forum Projects section and not in the Project area you posted.

if you guys make one can you post a pic here, am interested to see the end results

How did you go about the finishing ? Curious as to how you achieved the 2 tone effect.

That is incredible!

how was this painted?

here’s another color

started by painting it black then went over it with the copper paint, then used the patina effect solution

My first attempt. Im not 100% happy with it. My z clearance was set to .001" which caused the bit to drag, making the crossing lines. Also have some chip out. Maybe Im too picky. Any suggestions on how I should prep the MDF before cutting.

I got a little chip out too, but seems the deeper its carved in one pass the less chip out there is, I set my depth at 5mm but think I might try 6 next time
