When you're importing the file.  The third button from the left under the modeling tab is a "create vector boundry".  Click on your model and then click that button.  It will put a profile vector around your model.  Just add in that profile vector to the machining and set your depth.  I usually only go about .05" past the bottom of the board and make sure my work is on some spoilage

It's going to depend on what software you use.  

Profile Cut on 3D Project

July 24, 2021 at 4:17 AM

Hello Friends. 

I'm pretty new to CNC, so please forgive my noob questions.  On these 3D models, I've got the carving part down pretty good so far.  But I can't figure out how to cut out the profile of the model from the board.  On round models, I just placed a round vector and cut that.  But what about the models with irregular shapes.  I'm sure there's an easy way, I just can't figure it out.  I'm using V-Carve Pro.

Thanks in advance...

Much better than facebook.

Perhaps obvious, but for carving 3D models, use the largest ball nose you can, for the detail you need.

Shanna-McCord, Just to help out. When replying to a post here instead of posting 13 times with 13 pics, just post 1 time and put ALL pics in that 1 post. Less work for you and less confusing for everyone.




I would love to see some 3d files with 1955-1959 Chevy Trucks.

We are in the process of remodeling and building a pool table for the billiard room, I would love to have more of a variety for decor and to be able to carve  a clock for our room. 

Leave the name blank so we can edit
