Thinking of getting a shapeoko but can I do this?

Post by ahelwig » Sat Dec 07, 2019 5:50 pm

Thinking of getting a shapeoko to mainly do these inlays but want to get your guys opinions. I see a lot of people using the vcarve technique, but dont think it would work with these because I would want three or more different colors. So I would think I would use just a standard 1/8 or 1/16" straight cutter. Do you guys think this could be done with a shapeoko? They are about 14" tall and the lines of inlays are roughly 1/8" wide

Hi If your can get it designed in Carbide Create then you will be able to generate the toolpaths then save the G code in Carbide Motion then you will be able to cut it. In woulde download Carbide create and play around with it doing some designs and get the feel as to how it works.
