I wanted to replicate(ish) the reticuation effect seen in some silver jewellery with the intention of getting a random pattern than is repeatable and controllable.
Attached is a test output using a pieve of 2mm thick brass (dimensions 45 x 6 mm) Brass:
Modelled using Vellum nodes in Houdini (relatively easy process) with toolpaths from VCarvePro
Milled out on the Nomad with a 1/16 roughing bit (112), finishing with 1/32 ballnose (121).
More to do, but fortunately reticulated metal comes in many forms, I can’t fail
