Thread: Defining parts of an image imported?

    OK, so I decreased the depth to .2" and it made a considerable difference in how the bit carved those fine lines.

    Next issue I would like to understand? I have been getting some scrap wood from people who have wood shops as I practice. The attached picture is the same pattern as the 1st one but with the depth decreased to .2" and it defined the fine lines much better but along all the carved lines it is fairly rough. I did a one pass with a small mop and it is still no where near as good an overall carving finish. Both carvings are on pine but the 2nd one the wood seems to not be as dense.

    Could the issue with the carving being a rougher finish be the density of the wood even though they are both pine? Or could the bit be an issue?

    Changes to the pattern were setting Bit Optimization to Best, Draft to Large, and depth from .35" to .20"

    Yes the density/grain of the wood plays big part in how the carve turns out. Also the image and pattern... Now that you have tried this a couple of time look at this and the link in it to the large pattern sharing section. I believe there are several Chevy patterns in it that you might like. This is found from the main forum screen in the Patterns / Pattern sharing thread.
