I rarely count machine time… Especially on Christmas presents.
But this is around 2-3 hours roughing. 2-3 hours finishing pass.
I would charge around $100-$120 for something like this… but for great-step-grandma-in-law… free!
A quick present for my son’s bus driver!
Hey Phil, Can the 3D STLs be imported into Easel or just Vcarve?
Never mind, I just realized they are STLs not SVGs…
Easel doesn’t do 3D except for as a g code sender.
And svg is only 2D vectors.
I didnt know you were my Son-In Law. My granddaughter’s name is Mia and she turned 3.
Yet another wife order…
BEAUTIFUL wreath Phil! How long did it take to carve this? Can my standard excarve with the free version of Easel carve a sign with multiple depths that overlap like the pic attached?
Yes you can perform a carve like that picture you Posted in easel.
The wreath took about 4 hours or so I believe. That’s roughing, finishing pass, cutout, laser.
One more before Christmas
Wondering if you ever sleep Phil.
I do get some sleep. Go to bed at 11pm. Wake up at 6am.
Here’s one I made for my son’s driver
Yeah, I know. My wife always get driver some kind of ornament having to do with driving a bus. She didn’t know what she was going to do with this little bus she found so I said " Hey, I can come up with something." My youngest son has had the same driver for 5 and a half years. He’s been great.
Turned out awesome! And the vcarve estimated time was dead on again.
Did you up your Z acceleration from 100 yet? I’ve found the higher accel values make for a speedier smoother carve
Not yet, but I will once I put the new linear rail z axis on to replace the crappy microcarve one.
Beard comb gifts for my brother and a few others
You can see my zero mark in the lower left corner of the board for my 1/16" down spiral bit
I’m using the painters tape and superglue method
