I’m new to all of this. I want to cut channels for inlaying mother of pearl in ukulele headstock veneers. I see something about checking an option to add a box if doing prismatic, etc. Does anyone know what this is talking about? My first effort in cutting channels left them cut too tight.
Assuming you’re using F-Engrave?
The prismatic cut is the “male” piece that will fit in the v-carve.
You might want to give more details on what you’re trying to do.
I’m trying to cut channeling for mother of pearl inlay for musical instrument building. I have the inlay drawing and am trying to get the channel fairly close to the it’s dimensions.
I see. With mother of pearl, you’ll have some tolerance because you just fill up the carve. You wont need to use prismatic settings.
So, the drawing just needs to be a hair bigger to accomodate the inlay. Experimenting is the best method, I expect?
I’ve never used mother of pearl, but I would imagine that you should just need the cut to be the size of the design. The only thing you might need to “fudge” would be a tolerance for sanding.
