    Default More questions than answers

    I seen Dan's (Bergerud) bowl that he give as a example to someone today I did the carve and didn't like the way the outside edges didn't line up, but Dan struck again... He made me start thinking, so I made what I wanted for three boards on top of one another 2.25 thick. Question #1 how do I get the file into the STL folder..#2 How is the feather made for each board for the cut out...I get these two ? answered and I'm going to get this 3-d going to do the minor things and start learning how to do gimp to keep stepping up.

    Answer #1. Why do you want to take it into STL?

    #2. Cut outs can only go 1" deep so you can not cut out on this.

    #1...I thought by putting it into the STL files that I could slice them into .75 thick to make the bowl and do the cut outs

    I just threw that example together to demonstrate a concept. I have not carved it myself. It should have worked out. What went wrong? What did not line up?

    If you want to create an STL from a pattern, you can double click on the pattern in the favorites list to open it in the pattern editor. Then export as STL. There is really no reason, however, to do this unless you want to use the STL in another program. (You would be just going around in a loop??)

    There was no feather. I made the files in 1.187 and so when opened in 2.005, the patterns get the floor feather by default. It has to be turned off.

    Dan, the outside edges had no feather they where stair stepped anywhere up to .75 on each slice and I didn't turn off the feather I read it on the forum but didn't implement it...I didn't even think of it..

    The STL is a thin (mathematical) surface. It has a front and a back. You choose which side to carve when you make patterns in the STL importer.

    (Try turning of the floor feather on the original file. (Checkbox beside the conform box) It is an important thing to understand.)
