Req. for info.

What I want to use is a CNC spoilerboard surfacing carbide tipped bit. It is a 3 wing 1/4 shank, 1 inch cut diameter, straight cut. For tool diameter, I ...

Problem svg file

I have an .svg file that I hope someone can help me with. I wish I could attach the file, but apparently it is not in a format that is acceptable, which I find strange since .svg format is what Carbide Create uses. So, I have uploaded a .jpg version of that file. You will note a circle of stars in t...

Betsy Ross American Flag

Am wondering if anyone can direct me to where I can download, preferably for free, an svg file for a Betsy Ross American flag. Even better would be just that portion of the flag containing the stars. Thanks if you can help.

5 leg star

I am wondering if anyone can help me figure out how to cut a 5 leg star using a 60° v-carv bit, or tell me what I am doing that's wrong, or what machine problem I may be having. The stars look terrible. All of the stars have one leg that is only partially there, where there should be one center at t...

Looking for help

I just got my Shapeoko XXL and have absolutely no experience with CNC or CAD. Maybe that's why I feel absolutely lost. So here's what I want to do. I want to create an American flag using 13 1x1 pieces of lumber. Each piece representing one stripe. Of course nine of those 1x1 will also contain a lin...
