Routed Teak Tiger.
« on: January 12, 2010, 12:05:04 PM »
Found the .stl for this tiger on the Zone and decided to cut it in teak. It is approx 70mm x 70mm x 30mm and cut with a 2.5mm ballnose in 3 passes - took approx 3 hours total, including the emergency saw to the stock to clear the chuck on the final pass.  ;)

That's pretty neat Tweakie. You can really tell a difference after you put some finish on it, hugh. Makes it pop right out.

Incidentally, the toolpath for this tiger was created from an .stl file using 'DeskProto'.
The company is offering a 30 day trial version for download from their site here:- http://www.deskproto.com/
For those who have not seen it - the program is pretty basic (which makes it easy to learn) but incorporates most of the features found in the big boys programs including 4th axis capability.
Not sure if I will purchase it yet though - think I may run a few more 3D files before the 30 days are up.

Cool, Tweakie.

As for that new software, until they make 5 and six axis, I'm sticking with cnc toolkit.  Or if MasterCam ever dropped their price to something reasonable, I'd get that.

You might want to look at MeshCAM. Does indexed 4 axis, and it's a LOT less money than DeskProto.
