1st venture into MeshCam
« on: February 01, 2009, 04:21:03 PM »
Thought I'd share my first project with MeshCam as I won this program over at the Taig Owners Club forum.

It's all new to me so it will take a little bit of playing with to get the hang of it and unfortunately time is pretty much non-existant lately.

My wife and I hate the commercialism of Valentines day so we always make each other cards instead of buying them. I thought this would be a nice addition to the card as well.

It's made from a piece of 2.5" by 5" X 3/8" Cherry and the full depth is about .120. I started with an 1/8 ballmill in .025 steps and then a finish cut of the same ballmill with .010 steps.

Not the most complicated part but I like to take babysteps!   :D

Here's the pic that I stole the image from (obviously I had to modify it a bit and change it to grayscale):

 

And then here's a couple of shots of the part:
