The King (Koning) rules! Welcome back with that great job!

(I think you have some mix-up with sizes - maybe the falcon wingspan is 1100mm?)

Thank you, I am happy to be back, on the forum and at home, I have been working in Saudi for more than a year. I had to replace the waterpump for the spindel cooling, vacuum the spider webs from the control cabinet and it is all going forward-backwards and up/down.

There is a bad noise on the A drive stepper motor, will need to look into that. I will start with the upgrade-indexer.

Carved frame with lithophane

This is to show one of my latest projects that I completed using Aspire, This is a lithophane of Sophus Falck, he is the father and founder of the happy family that I am working for ... Falck
http://www.falck.com

The editing of the picture took some time, it was very grainy and not suited for a lithophanes, I received the picture of the R button on his uniform from Falck museum in Denmark as a sample text that I wanted to carve on the frame, I did not found a font to match the R I decided to create my own font based on the R so the font to carve the letters is all my work.
Top of the frame is carved REDNINGSKORPSET (rescue corps)
1) Material: bright white solid surface material, thickness 6mm max carve depth 5.33mm finish size 473mm x 293mm
2) 60 deg V bit http://www.cmtutensili.com/show_item...s=RB~7/8/958~2 no rough pass, direct finish path
3) Wood - beech light
4) Frame size 420mm x 604mm x 25mm
5) Rough pass 6mm ball end
6) Finish Pass 2mm ball end
Time spend on this project ---- way to much to be profitable
