A friend from India has commissioned me to make him a cutting board. I am going to try and do an inlay of the Ashoka Chakra from the Indian Flag. I found a free .svg that I imported in to Create. My problem seems to come when creating the toolpaths. I tried Select All on the design tab, went to toolpaths and selected VCarve, #302 60 degree bit, starting depth 0.000, finish depth 0.300.
Ran the simulation and very little shows up. Is this because the cut is so shallow?
I tested an inlay last week
60 degree bit
I’ll look up the depths I used for male and female and post them
Once did I put a pocket cut to take it down by 0.01 at a time until it hit the female surface
I only did half as I was pleased how it was coming out
What’s the dia of the circle
The male part is not an issue but for the female you going to have to set a bottom depth for sure
I’m trying to trace the picture in inscape to see what it looks like on my software
I traced your picture in inscape then converted to vector, ran a Vcarve for the female first
Then drawn another circle around your design selected all and Vcarve again with a 1/4” end mill to clear and a 60 degree Vbit to finish off
