Hello fellow cnc-ers,
I 3d carved some gnomes holding a shovel with the vortex
Full uncut video of rotary surfacing to 2-1/2" (62.5mm) diameter a rough piece of poplar
I simply used the default settings in gSender’s rotary surfacing tool.
1/4" flat up cut end mill
This piece of wood measured 101mm on the diagonal in some areas and it was about 3mm from the dust shoe bracket so pretty much the biggest square I could fit on the Vortex.
Cut video of 3d roughing and 3d finishing
The finished project is just under 2-1/2" (62.5mm) diameter and about 6" (152mm) tall.
1/4" Flat up cut end mill for the 3d roughing tool path - 1h41m
1/4″ D1/16″ Tapered ball end mill for the 3d finishing tool path - 2h32m
Thank you to Aitor Vannevel on Printables for the beautiful Gnome with shovel model.
