I got my Shapeoko 3 XXL last week. I’m really digging it. After going back and forth trying various modeling programs I ended up buying Vcarve Desktop. First thing I did was make my wasteboard and made various hold down parts on my 3D printer.
Then I got down and made my first sign. It’s about 5 1/2 x 7 1/4" Aldar 4 /2 hours print time. 1/4" roughing bit, 1/16" tapered ball nose for the finishing and 1/2" 60* V-bit for the text.
