Default slicing a model in Aspire

I have been putting this off for years, but decided to embrace the Slicing tool in Aspire to see what could be done with Deeper models.

So I reviewed Ms Becky's training video on slicing, where she always makes me feel like my memory is shot and I am an idiot, than watched how she sliced an Apple about 5 times.

Than I waded into this 30" tall 4 inch deep piece. The concept is a an Owl in a gnarly old tree, with a snow globe sticking out....( painting will make it so I hope).

I laid the entire piece out on a 4' x2' piece of 1" pine slab from Lowes and than hit the Slice button. Seperated the slices and started carving.

Next is glue up, than finish carving. But I thought you all might find the steps out the CNC interesting.

I love watching Beki's tutorials, but I must honesty admit that her soft-spoken voiceovers have caused me to fall asleep on more than one occasion.

Great project, and congratulations on a newly acquired skill!

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

The only challenge with slicing 3D models is that sometimes you end up with layers that have brittle sharp edges until glued up. If you're going to paint then a little filler will replace the missing bits, but if you're planning an oil finish on a hardwood model then glue lines and those sharp layer edges need to be thoughtfully planned for.
