Tiny CNC carvings with ShapeOko

Post by Improbable Construct » Sat May 05, 2012 1:16 am

So if anybody is worried about the precision offered by a ShapeOko mill maybe this will help.
All of these are done with a 1/32 end mill at 400 mm/min in some leftover pre-painted pine 1x8 trim board.
First is a face, 3mm deep 20mmx20mm working area. The fuzz on the edges is a result of the finish cut not being as big as the roughing cut.
Next are some Moai 7mmx12mm working area also 3mm deep.
Third image is a H-D logo 50mm wide.
Sorry the pictures are a bit blurry, my camera does not like to focus down this small. :)

This is great! I would love to see more users showcase their projects so I can live vicariously through them until my shapeoko arrives. ;) Keep them coming!

Those are awesome! I was just thinking earlier today it would be great to have a Projects sub-forum to document ShapeOko's capabilities and showcase users' creativity.

I created space in the wiki for projects. I thought it would be a good place to put pictures, CAD files, g-code, etc.
