Need help programming for my wine rack
I am a Celtic wood carver and I use Mach 2 for roughing my wood projects on my cnc router.
My latest project is a celtic knotwork wine rack. My cnc router currently roughs it in 2-1/2 dimensions and I then begin carving. I would like to have someone 3D solid model it and create g-code for it so I have to do less carving and finishing.
You can see photos of a 3d finished one at http://www.celticity.com.
I will email you the dxf file of the designed wine rack.
Interesting work. I did not see the wind rack, but one solution (since you only want to rough it out in 3D), would be to take a picture of a model and convert it to G-Code. You might have to touch it up in a photo editor, or paint the item to get what you want.
I have Solidworks, Alibre Design, and Virtual Gibbs. Send me the DXF and I'll see what I can do. Let me know what size rough stock you use, what tool type and size, depth of cut, and step-over you want and I'll have Gibbs make all the roughing and finishing passes you want. firstname.lastname@example.org
