This is a Poseidon/ Atlantis mythical carving composite model I did using a couple different models. I used Meshmixer to extract the frame from another model, and weld it to another model. I also added some Z depth to the main model. So it's basically a customized, one of a kind carving. Meshmixer is totally free, and is quite powerful, and has a ton of features. I am just learning how to use it, so I really can't give much advice about how to use it.
- Vectric V-carve Pro, bCNC, Meshmixer
- Machine Time:
- Over 20 hours
- Bit or Laser Size:
- 1/4" downcut EM, 1mm. tapered ball noseEM, .125 EM
- Feeds & Speeds:
- 118 IPM Roughing pass, Max speed for finish pass, 40 IPM cutout tool path. Router speed: Lowest setting on Dewalt VS.
- Cherry wood, Titebond II wood glue, Minwax PolyShades finish.
After I completed my changes in Meshmixer, I exported the file as an STL and loaded it into V-carve as usual.
I used a 1/4" down cut EM for the roughing pass, a 1mm. tapered ball nose for the finish pass and a .125 end mill for the cut out tool path.
I had to use a Dremel tool with a flexible extension with a small diamond bit for cleaning this piece up afterwards because of all the fine lines and details in it. It worked very well, but does take time to do. A sanding mop was used where I didn't have to worry about it damaging any fine lines.
Hope you all like this project, and feel free to ask any questions. I will do my best to answer. Thanks.
The sun was starting to set in these pictures, and gave it a very red/ orange hue. It looked so cool in person.
