I've tried to enlarged so I can get a better outcome on my CNC.....Please Help
image is way too small - can't hardly even see it -
I know I've tried to enlarge it but no luck
Well, what's the budget ? - I might know someone ...
I can do just about 100-200
perfect - now the only issue is if it's humanly possible - stay tuned ...
the bad news is: it's not humanly possible
the good news is: my elbow has a mind of it's own
in other news: I'm still not up to speed - still rebuilding - but it's nice to be drawing again
here's what I got so far - it's in reverse color - drawing the claws next
I figured out what the text says - "The Ancient Arms of Mesick"
still not quite finished.... drawing...
Thank you so much....Name on it is Musick
I'm still working on it but something came up and messed up my schedule will finish asap
Are you shooting for a larger image? or a DXF? (some machines just want a JPEG, that's why I ask)
DXF mostly so I can carve it into wood
check your messages, please.
Hello, I understand and I'll have to wait until I get home tonight and talk with my wife before we move forward on this.
If I get the down load do I just send it to you to convert it?
Sure, or I could get it directly and email both to you.
"carve it into wood".. I have a couple questions then, since I've never done a flat DXF for a cnc router before, and am also not sure about your desired end results.
Normally, in a cutting environment on a design like this, where you intend to go all the way through the material, you have things to worry about. Like, the lines can't always connect, or all the inside pieces will fall out. There's only three settings "remove all material inside this looped area" or "remove all material outside this looped area", or "just center the cut on this line, and cut all the way through"
On a Router, the settings are a bit different.. you aren't cutting all the way through, except on the outside, and I believe you'll attempt to do varying routing heights for the loops, or planes.
If so.. I'm concerned that if I join the outlines of two different heights, you're not going to get what you want from this. For example, the five feathers at the top of the crown.. they definitely overlap each other, and therefore you might want to represent them at different heights.
In the picture I'm posting, the feather on the left is in-front of the feather on the right, I've got two overlap versions shown, the version 1 is what I think you want/need, and version 2, is what we would normally do in single-level cutting/engraving. Which would you prefer?
I'm not sure I'm still new to this I have a X Carve
OK. Are you using Easel?
Yes I'm still learning
