Default CNC mistake for your entertainment

Almost two years ago I fired up the CNC for the first time and right away decided to cut a sign with several bit changes, varying depths of cut on the letters, generated in one G-code, and no clue how to make bit changes once it took off. But, it was an inexpensive and soft piece of WRC so I let 'er rip. Well, I completely messed it up and kept the piece as a reminder as to what happens when you get in over your head.

The other day I decided I would modify the file because I know a WHOLE lot more about Fusion 360 now and thought I'd see if I could cut the sign properly on the other side of the same board.

Here's the one from Dec. 2016 -

And the one from this week -
CNC mistake for your entertainment-002-much-better-sign-9-18.jpg

I haven't decided whether to paint it, stain it, or just leave it alone. If I hang it on the house it will be out of the weather and away from the sun.

You have my permission to laugh at my expense - I did! LOL!

That had to be one thick board. I'd have burned the evidence. Fires are nice on cool evenings. Keep your reputation of being perfect in tact!!

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

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Haha! That reputation, if it ever existed, is ancient history, I'm afraid.

Yes, the board is 2" thick so I had plenty of room to play with.

Being a mere mortal (and feeling very mortal these days LOL) I have accomplished nothing that didn’t have a learning curve attached to it. You have a beautiful (well one side anyways) example of your curve.

Ah yes, the learning curve. That’s what keeps us coming back.

second one looks great. Any time I mess up a board the boss says if you don't mess now and then you never learn anything new. I still hate messing up boards lol
