CNC 3D carving…

Another project… using the CNC router to carve an Aboriginal face…

This face is a composite of several features and as such is not a depiction of one individual.


IMG_3550The above shows the progression of the carving.  From the first roughing tool path [using a 6mm ball nose cutter] and then the finish tool path [using a 3mm ball nose cutter] to the finished item… timber used is Queensland Black Wattle…

    It is as if he is part of the forest. Striking.
    How long from start to finish? I understand the details take a great deal of time. Did you create the original artwork or do you purchase that from somewhere?

      Finish time just under one hour…original artwork was by the artist who commissioned 20 carvings in various timbers… 3D artwork was rendered by Vector Art 3D.
