WOW... I really love this.... and I would love to make it with my wood shop kids. Since we have had our machine, the students have only reproduced images we can find on google. It's quite the trick to teach 4th graders through eighth graders how to turn a simple image into something carved on X-Carve. Especially with the tight budget concerns we are working with in a public charter school. We get less funding than the traditional public schools so I do a lot of dumpster diving for materials behind the cabinet shops.
I was able to play around with gears the other day, but haven't had much time to work on anything else. You can see some of what we have been up to here...
I downloaded the Ai file but wouldn't even begin to know what to do with it next. Can someone enlighten me?
