    I've done one carve, Brian's deer call. Very impressed with the full system..

    Some I make from mathematical formulas, some I make in other 3d graphics programs, some I find on the web, and some I make in Designer.

    bergerud, is your name Dan?
    Would you care to share with the rest of us where "kissing pair" for example came from? Would you care to dole for us the web sites from which you get the models? Perhaps a hint of the 3D graphics programs that you use?
    Thank you Jack

    Dan I am. The figures I carve are created in a free program called Daz 3D Studio. It is a program people use to make 3d human figures and scenes. From it you can export 3d meshes in .obj format. Import into another program like Meshlab, for example, and export as .stl. then import into Designer. Lots of the stuff is free. Many users make and sell textures and accessories. We only need the meshes.

    Nice ones Floyd. Since you are showing the calls, I will show the turkey head striker I designed for Brian. (last Image is what Floyd sent me from the stl files I created) The head was done in ZBrush, striker done in Moi3D, and assembled centered on striker in silo 3d, and made into an STL using blender. (blender is much better at converting OBJ files to STL files)
    This has not been carved yet, but getting close to carving it.

    Using Designer 1.187, STL importer, Center line, conforming vectors, scanning probe/PE, and the ROCK chuck.

    Yes, that is a great job, a very unique striker. I can't wait to carve it soon.

    Eddie,

    I had the easy part, you did all of the hard work on the model! We did discover something though about the STL importer and the centering of the model. Eddie made a 3D model (STL) and centered it on the striker length but when imported into the stl it shifted the center to the full model. This made the carve offset in the rotary software and un carve able. Eddie had to unwrap it to get it to work properly.
