    Thanks G. Just looked at it and things look a little battered (like the first "O" in Shopbot). Is that an effect of the fractal program? or a low res .jpg? Just curious. Will run by Dianne at Shopbot(Or maybe Nancy will pop in) to make sure using their logo doesn't bring their lawyer down on me.

    They have made the logo freely available in the past and i thought it was intigrated into the control software to cut as a first cut sample
    look in the Command Consolse/C1/Shopbot Logo >>>Custom Cut Demo

    So i don't think it is a issue.

    Yes in a way because these fractals are self-replicating in ever smaller identical patterns. In this case a small image just happens to overlay a bigger one. In UF5 you can change the scaling from very small stand-alone images up to large fully overlapping ones that you don't recognize the original anymore. This is somewhere in between.

    Another fractal design....

    Came out quite nice, carved in hard maple but I have to reconsider the use of oil stain for highlighting of the cut surfaces. Although the wood was laquered before carving there is some significant and visible bleeding that I can not sand away.

    This is a test carve for a larger one that I want to do for a table surface sometimes. Either filled in with Epoxy or maybe as an inlay (the latter would be difficult, though).

    Now that one has some real potential.
