It really depends on the design of the item to be cut. if the intricate design goes completely around the item then the only way to make it is on a rotary axis or true 5 axis machine. If the detail wraps from the side and over the top or bottom then the rotary axis is the best way to go for the hobbyist. If the intricate detail is all on the sides of the object like a wildlife scene on the side of a gunstock then it can be done as a 2 sided project. You can also do a 4 sided project if there are separate top and side elements but it can be problematic if the same design element wraps around.
