    Good evening.

    Today I present you a new decoration I made.

    It is a chisel-shaped Reso base.

    The first one I made (the photo with the wooden ring) was hexagon.

    The new one is hexagonal and ends in a round.

    I quote how to build my work.

    1) I created a new file with Gadgets / wrapping / wrapped job setup as in the photo.

    2) I create a circle with a diameter of 52mm.

    3) I create a hexagon with a 26mm radius.

    4) With the selected circle, I select Gadgets / wrapping / vector Unwrapper to create a flat circle growth in a circle.

    5) By selecting the hexagon I choose Gadgets / wrapping / vector Unwrapper to create in flat the flat development of the hexagon.

    6) I am introducing the chalice channel (DXF).

    7) From the Two Rail Sweep icon on the Modeling tab, select the Stitches 1 & 2 and click Use Selection as in the photo.

    8) I chose the chalice vector 3 and click on Apply.

    9) I create the Toolpath with the cutter and I'm OK.

    I hope I helped.

    Sorry for my English but it's from Greek to English translation with Google translation.
