Found an stl file of a heart on Grabcad and followed Apollo’s instructions from his chess piece thread. It was pretty easy to do! I will shoot a tutorial video once I’ve had some time to get better at it.
It’s such a cool feeling to have a smooth and rounded solid block of cherry hardwood in my hand
In my experience, which is extremely limited so far, it is much quieter then I expected. Maybe I should go measure it compared to some common household objects. Major note: I have not milled any metal yet. Only woods, plastics, and other compounds like the synthetic wood Carbide3d has. I’d say it is quieter than my dishwasher. I have an old dishwasher, not one of the newer quieter models models like a Bosch.
We have Tested the Nomad sound levels, you can have a conversation next to the machine when cutting wax.
Hardwoods and Aluminum are the loudest and get to around 90 db, which is the same as a powered hand drill.
I have personally used my Nomad in my apartment, cutting metals.
