Help with "Lone Star" V-Carve?

Hey Everyone,

I am working on what I thought would be a simple task and unfortunately I am having a serious brain wreck…

Lone Star

I need to V-carve a star like the one above and I am stumped. What I am after is to have the star v-carve start at the points of the star and increase in depth towards the center.

Has anyone seen or created something similar?



I believe, quite literally, that you need to create a (solid) star and specify a v-bit. It will do exactly what you want, as long as the depth you specify is deep enough for the v-bit in question. Try it in Easel and look at the detailed preview.


Thanks for the input.

I will give it a shot.

I was over thinking it…

I feel a bit stupid…

A simple vector outline of the star v-carved yielded exactly what I was after.

Thank you all for your replies.

happens to everybody. We expect things to be more difficult than they are… good job!!

and depending on how deep you want to carve/ how big the star is… you will want to use a different v-bit. … a 60 degree bit will have to be deeper than a 90 degree bit at the same size. and a 90 degree bit will be deeper than a 120 degree bit

Thank you.

I worked out nicely.
