Really nice to see someone make your own map design, from TAspring, into real-life! I'm both honored and blazed away with amazement! The detail and coloring make it simply astonishing!

Very cool! I made my own CNC router a few years ago and just got it up & running again since I moved a couple months ago. Mine has a build area of about 2ft x 3ft. I saw in one of your pics all the fans in the background, are those used to blow all the dust out of your shop? lol That's one thing I hate about cutting MDF, the dust is terrible! (HD urethane foam is nice, but pricey) I constructed a nice cube frame around my machine and used clear vinyl to keep as much of the dust inside the machine as possible (yes, all my bearings are sealed,lol). That crater scene must have generated a ton of dust, and the time it must have taken, I'm surprised the router didn't burn up. Great Job!

The fane are used to blow bust some times, but not as a form of dust removal. Its more for ventilation. I have a very large Ducst Collector. It wsa broekn the day the crew came to photograph, so i didnt have it connected, but it handles all the dust.

Kenneth,
I have used vcarve also. I saw that you wrote you use 1/4" ballnose, but in the little screenshots I saw .5".

I am trying to get it as smooth as possible, but still get the little ridges and valleys from the ball nose bit. What is the best settings that you have found?

thanks for your help

On a ball-nose bit, keep the stepover no higher than 9% (I typically run at 8%, and have used 7% when i am really feeling frisky, but the truth is, that 8% and the ridges are gone.

Ok, I am so curious to see what the end result and the framing nailer you used to build this! This post is definitely a cliffhanger!
