Would anyone happen to have and be willing to share a file of a tattered USA Flag?
Thanks RHM963, that's perfect
rhm963 i opened the dxf but the outline wont show up. any solution to this?
Are you using PlasmaCam software? Explode it.
This is what I came up with ... and the request list is growing ...
A Amend, May I ask you how you stained the flag with color and finished?
The base metal is stainless steel .. the red is dye-chem layout fluid and the blue is simply heat discoloration .. when all done with that .. extra-fine scotch-brite to polish the white
That looks very cool! Great work!
going to try this this week
i was having troubles with the outside border also till i exploded it and it showed up great, im still kinda new to this and still learning for sure so this may be a stupid question but why does exploding it make the boarder appear?
Drawings can be made up of different types of lines, some of which some programs may not recognise........ it's likely that your program doesnt recognise a polyline.......which is a continuous line including all curves etc. Exploding it breaks it up into seperate segments that are now recognised. Google polylines, splines, arcs etc, it makes for interesting reading.
What thickness of material did you use?
I used ... .033 304 #4 Brushed Stainless Steel.
Your work looks amazing!
Here's my take on it. 14GA P&O first sand the entire piece, used peroxide and salt to rust the eagle, heat for the blue, sprayed candy red over the bare metal for the red stripes then buffed the head and tail of the eagle and the white stripes back in with a scotch bright roll lock disc and covered the entire piece in clear.
amazing job on these!
