Default How would I cut this?

I have it in 3 layers
Frame, ava and fairies.
It is small. 100mm x 50mm
Best bit? Procedure?
My thought is ava, fairies, frame, another layer for final frame cutout.
Vgroove for all but final cutout?
I'm getting there,I figured out how to take a picture to vector , adjust and go thru the toolpaths. Tried earlier at .5 mm with vgroove I had (think a 90} it cleared out most of the letters.

If it is all v carving except the profile, and you are going to use the same bit, then I would cut all the V-carves at once and then cut the profile.

That's a little carving. I would see what the results look like with a 60 degree V carve bit, you may have to go to something narrower like a 30 degree bit. Profile it with a 1/4 inch or so end mill

Thanks Doug,
are the whitesell or whatever better for me ? The straight vcarve bits,rather than the normal 1/2 inch bits? Most likely I'll be doing small stuff like this.work space is only 8x11.

Some people swear by certain brands of bits, I have bits from several different makers.

I have WhiteSide V bits (1540 and 1504) https://www.whitesiderouterbits.com/...e&type=product You may want to look at the 22 degree bit (SC50) if you are going to do really small work. I haven't used it yet, but others I know have created some very intricate pieces with it.

I also enjoy my Centurion V bits (30 degree, 45 degree, and 60 degree) https://www.centuriontools.com/route...V-Carve%20Bits

spiral bits are available from anybody, and I have bought expensive ones and cheap ones and had decent results all around

22 degree. That's what I was thinking. Well, smaller bit anyway. Thanx, I'll check them out

I don't do machine CNC, but would not mind giving something like this a shot at it.

I do coffee n chat CNC.

V-carve the lettering and the frame detail but for Tinkerbell you will need to profile on the lines with a fine v-bit (maybe 15-20 degree) and 0.02+ deep or you will not be able to tell what she is..

Thanks mike. Ordered the bits. Tried .2 with 90v, lost the center piece of the O. Found a great YouTube ,its for aspire but he explains process great.slow,doesn't go into "or you can do it this way or this way,or this way". Wish he did more of them but he did only that one.

How do you know/decide on depths? My mind doesn't work in "hundredths of a mm".
And, I made the plaque with the contour (ogee like). Can I export it as something that retains that info so I can just load and add a name?

Jeff you decide the depths of cut and you also decide if you want to use mm or inches when you do your design. You just need to make sure you use the correct post processor when you save the toolpaths.

You say you made the plaque with a contour (ogee like), did you actually create a 3D model of the plaque? If you did not create a 3D model then you don't have an ogee profile to save. You could create an edge on the plaque using point culling round over bits and 2D toolpaths.

The big problem is we don't know what software you are trying to use so we don't know what you can and can't do.

What software are you using? You said earlier you wanted to use the old ArtCam software you got but then you say you are watching tutorials for Aspire. They operate differently and work with different file types.
