Carbide Community weekly Build Competition #3 (3/30 /17 – 4/14/17)
Rules: Project must be started and completed within the specified competition dates. No previous projects.
Theme: Skill development - Inlay – Since most of us are relatively new to CNC, I thought it would be cool if a couple of these competition themes could be based on learning and perfecting specific machining skills/techniques. This week’s competition will focus on inlays. Show off your best inlay work by either creating a new project or enhancing an existing one that doesn’t already have an inlay. It could be anything (sign, box, handle, etc). It just needs have some awesome inlays! Be sure to include as much detail as possible about your process so we can all learn together.
Machine: Nomad or Shapeoko
Required Info in your Post:
Photos! The More the better.
A) Materials used
C) Design software used to create your project
D) Machine used
…And these additional details I would think would help earn votes from the Community but are not required:
G) Sourcing of supplies is often very helpful.
H) Concept Sketch
I) Machining Time
J) Carbide Create .C2D file
Voting will be done with the heart, the post that gets the most likes wins.
@robgrz Rob Grzesek Said carbide3d will provide the prizes.
The winner each week will start the challenge off for the following week so be ready with ideas. You will get to decide the theme/rules/tools/materials and whatever
The idea here would be something simple (its only a week) and something most people have on hand, ie scrap/scrapwood/pallet wood would all make great weekly choices.
This weeks build is from 3/30 /17 – 4/7/17 post as many projects as you want
