    Default arc engraving ????

    i have been trying to engrave on a arch.....

    i cant find any info on how... or what to use

    simple example is.....\

    got a beer can and i want to engrave my name on it.....
    now i know i would have to have 4th axis but .. just a sample

    what i want to do is engrave a pistols handle....

    the thing is about 30mm width 70 long and the arch is about 4 mm along the 30mm side.....and i want to engrave along the 70mm side so the
    angle of the bit shouldn't be bad because the arch is soo small .....
    but i just cant figure out how to do it....

    can anyone help me plz

    I know that Aspire can project the toolpaths onto a 3D model.

    If you're willing to make a probe (or already have one) take a look at G-Code Ripper. Can't beat the price.

    Edit/ I'm assuming the pistol grip is an existing piece, not something you're making from stock..


    Anyone who says "It only goes together one way" has no imagination.
