David your cutting board should sell it's different from others I have seen. So where did you come up with the design for the inlay?
Thanks, Rick! I have been a Geek forever, it seems, and spent the last 25 years in Technology Sales. I'm using Fusion 360 for my CAD/CAM program and I regularly import svg files (Scalable Vector Graphic). I drew the guitar in CorelDraw, exported as svg, then imported and scaled as needed in F360. If Inkscape exports svg then F360 will handle it just fine. It also imports dxf and other formats but I mostly use svg.Great video David. Were you a software man before you got your CNC? I am trying to wrap my head around some of this software information on the net and up to now, it is presented in a very general way, by that I mean that the information is not for a person like me, I know nothing about software. Do you have any suggestions on available information, can designs be imported from an INKSCAPE type program???
Please keep the videos coming.
I finished my first accoustic guitar about 5 months ago, I got the plans from Martin...Dreadnaught, I'm sure it won't be my last.
Thanks, Oliver! I had never seen the split screen showing both the cavity and insert at the same time so figured I'd try something new. And since I was doing it I figured I'd slow the insert piece to 1/4 speed to show the chips flying in slow motion.Great video, David, and a couple of things stood out for me. First, I liked the split screen where I could watch both the pocket and the inlay being cut at the same time. And, second, was the nifty little tip I picked up where you used a simple shop-built jig to mark the position of the feet so they were equally aligned at all the corners. Thanks again for an inspiring video.
