98-Display Shelf with Epoxy Inlay CNC Set Up
Display Shelf with Epoxy Inlay
The files here should get you set up to rout the display shelf shown on in Issue 98.
There are two CRV files that should open in either V-Carve, or Aspire:
Back-Shelf All Tool Paths 10 x 25 blank Center Orig Aspire V8
Sides All Tool Paths 6 x15 blank Center Orig Aspire V8
The Back-Shelf file contains the drawing and tool paths to cut out the back and the shelf pieces as well as the tool paths for three potential inlays. These inlays include the birds shown in the magazine, a dragonfly (shown on page 55 of Issue 97) and a trinity knot. After downloading the file, open it in VCarve or Aspire and save the individual tool paths to suit your particular router.
The Sides file contains the drawing and the tool paths for cutting the side pieces.
If you don’t have access to Aspire or VCarve, import the DXF files into whatever program you use to generate the tool paths for your machine. They should download and import at the appropriate size. Position the drawings then assign toolpaths and bit sizes as discussed in the article.
