    This time i did it on purpose, doing the finishing tool path across the grain. The result was almost zero fuzzies in this cherry plaque. When i ran my finders over the flat area it felt like what 300 grit sand paper would feel like. The plaque is in the process of being finished.

    Just Zoomed in on it, and that looks GREAT Rick.
    You must have been watching it start cutting like a hawk
    Nice to know my little testing ones weren't a fluke.
    Cut down on sanding time then?
    THANKS for playing with it again, and VERY glad it worked so well twice in a row.

    i still sanded with a mop and vibrating sander, but there were zero fuzzies. now when i do my 3-d stuff, even the flat area is cut with a ball nose instead of a pocket.

    I have often wondered what one of my 3-d carvings would look like if it were finished by an artist. I can not take credit for this finish on this at all and the artist did an outstanding job. She just informed me that it is all stain except for the gold on the lettering. It 20 inches round, took 25 hours to cut. Models came from Todd Bailey and vectorart3d.com. Man i wish that i could paint.

    actually she did the layout, sortof. she put a sketch together and i followed it as much as i could. we butted heads on a couple of issues but it finally came together. its going to be mounted in a bar within a home. it has a baseball theme but the grand slam means that each time they visit they want to see the 4 different critters.

    Kind of figured that was what the 'Grand Slam' meant.

    You need to have her write up a tutorial for the 'artistically challenged' among us.

    Scott aka srwtlc, a couple of people on the vectric site dont like the fact that cutting this 20 inch plaque took close to 25 hours. about 4 were the roughing and the other 21 was finishing with a 1/16 inch ball nose. I am using the 3d ramping values, but there is so much z action is what makes me think that the cutting took so long. Feed rates and plunge rates are close with about 2.6 inch per second for each. I am thinking that i am very close to what is correct. What do you think?
