This is the latest project that I made at TechShop Chandler. I wanted to try engraving a logo using the ShopBot. So a grabbed a Nissan logo off the web (I don't own the logo, I just used it as example of something to engrave).

Step 1: Convert logo to Vector

I imported the logo into VCarve Pro, and converted it to a Vector using the software's wizard. Then I had to edit the nodes to simplify the logo to make it acceptable for the ShopBot.

Nicely done. Did you use a straight end mill? If a 5&deg; tapered tool was used thjs carving coild be used as a pattern. At my place of employment we use a CNC router to make pattterns for sand casting. Our only difference is we use a positve carving as opposed to a negative carving. Food for thought maybe???
