1st attempt at a Vectric created Lithoplane
« on: May 31, 2008, 06:44:07 PM »
Not bad, except I machined through in a couple of places!

VMC was doing nothing much last night so I let it run through the night.   My slow! 6000rpm spindle meant the feedrates had to be kept down with a 1mm dia ballnose.

Brilliant work.

Good Job Wayne. I haven't made any yet because the only mill I have running now is just too slow. My friend was one of the originals working with ArtCam to help perfect the process. Neat isn't it?

Thanks. well the picture above is of my 1st attempt which screwed up, I machined through in a few places. 

Did it again and was perfect.  I gave the picture to Bob who is the person in the pic last week when I met him in Paris.

I'd try a few more later, but I'll probably build a high speed router to do them on rather than tie up the VMC.

Did you use Vectric PhotoCarve for this?  Also, what material?
