Just wanted to share my Star Wars Baby Furniture that I made a little while ago. The rocker and high chair were both designed in illustrator, and cut on my X-Carve. I used one sheet of 1/2" ply for each piece.
You can see the videos of my builds on YouTube.
I could care less about star wars… and I still love this!
It’s cool. My kid probably won’t like Star Wars either.
I absolutely made this for myself. LoL.
When ZK himself comments = Win.
hey man absolutely love your stuff!!! quick question I’m new and was curious how I go about cutting out designs with my x carve
You’ll probably find more comprehensive guides in the Inventables Forums. I would recommend going through the Tips and Tricks section there. Start with something small and just keep experimenting.
Personally, I design everything in Adobe Illustrator, and then export to a SVG file in order to bring it into Easel. I spend a lot of time making sure my vector art is perfect. It helps to work in 1:1 scale, and create all of you line widths to correspond with the bit sizes you plan on using.
Once in Easel, I select the areas that just need detail cuts and set the depth accordingly. And then select a through cut for the stroke around the image. Pretty straight forward stuff once you get the hang of it.
