A dragon carving

This is a pic of a carving of a dragon which I did. This was done with a 3 mm ball nose.

Hey, are you the same guy that didn't know where to start 6 months ago?

Very impressive!

Lots of questions:
- Overall size?
- Total cutting time?
- Programs used?
- At the top edge of the wing (and the "teeth") appear to be "chatter" marks. Was this programmed in, or was it interference?

After 6 years I am still amazed that a crude beast of a MechMate (or ShopBot), with no linear bearings, no ballscrews, can produce such fine work, even on a small scale.

Gerald I know now you could walk around with your collars up. Mind you, you were a super Guru as well, although a bit harsh on certain occasions. Just pulling your leg mate.

I really hope that "walking with collars up" has a different meaning in Sri Lanka to what it does here. Here it means you wear pink socks as well....

"2008 MechMate CNC World Tour"....now that is a brilliant idea! Any sponsors?

Normand what CNC table are you using these days? If I remember correctly, you were selling your ShopBot?

I also notice that you have a new website at http://www.sculpteur.ca/ with some excellent examples of your work!

Salut Robert
Tu sais j'ai pas grand mérite, c,est du tout cuit dans bouche,du bonbon. J'ai hate de pouvoir faire de belles chose comme cela , c'est long à apprendre ces logitiels la à temps partiel.Dis toi que tu pourra faire pareil avec ton MM. À quand le grand départ dans l'aventure ,Je vois que tu as beaucoup de software ça te donne une bonne longeur d'avance ,aller plonge, l'eau est bonne tu ne voudra plus ressortir,pis tu vas te demander pourquoi tu ne l'a pas fais avant.Bonne chance


Hi Greg I will answer you but the real nugget is the link. It is western red cedar the rough pass 85%stepover 1/4 in stepdown with a 1/2 cutter
Finishing with a taper 1/4 to 1/8 on 1 1/2 fl cutter raster 25% of cutter size ,all at 2ips. To be honest I am not to happy with it I find it to shallow for the the wood that I started with . I think this file is like 75meg big .I work in rhino and it is not really made to work with mesh ,it was like talking to another planet type a command ,surf the internet on the other computer ,get response type more command surf the other computer.... on and on ,crash sometime reload restart , this would best be done in zbrush or another mesh software ,and then import to the cam software.
I put it on the wall my girl friend like it ,(will inspire her when she does her exercises to keep in shape. amour si tu li ça j'taime comme té)

I'm looking at this beautiful work and thinking ..... with the sword and the knives .... this should inspire him to keep his mouth closed if she decides not to do exercises and keep in shape.
