    Wow Michael, that is stunning. I'm looking forward to more of those features and techniques to be revealed.

    Michael,

    So glad you came up with this type of rotary carving. I was floored when you told me it was just pvc pipe when I asked how and where you found round corian.

    I've already been looking up LED lighting ideas for the outside applications.

    That is really cool. Wish I had the rotary jig. I would buy it just for that feature, but money is tight at this time. Better start saving!

    I bought myself the rotary jig and it just came. Excited to start my first rotary project.

    I think it would be a good idea for LHR to provide a couple of "Basic" rotary patterns like the basic patterns that come with the designer for flat boards.

    Also, speaking of basic patterns I think it would be a good policy on LHR's part to add a new group of basic patterns with each new software version.

    Dave, do you have the Stl importer? if you do you can import a ton of stuff from thingiverse, grab cad,……... and lots of others that can be loaded right into designer.

    or make your own…the software is really fun to play around with

    I do have the STL importer, but I still think it would be a good idea on LHR's part to create a few patterns and put them into a "basic" group of patterns just like exists for regular designer. And also to regularly increase the pool of basic patterns in designer.

    Question! I have STL importer and have tried importing some files (I'm new to this) but how do you go about "flattening/stretching" the image so it carves it out as a 3 dimensional object instead of an object carved on a side into the dowel?

    Hi Paul,

    Please watch the following video tutorial. (An STL will automatically unwrap for a rotary project as you follow the steps outlined in the first 3 1/2 minutes of the tutorial.)

    Thank you again! You've been a HUGE help! I missed this video somehow when going through the tutorials.
