3d dinosaur pencil box

I used vcarve pro and the new laser module to carve this pencil box with a 3d top and laser carve the inside of the top. Then lasered a few erasers to make it a little more personalized.


Nice work! Well done. Don’t you just love that laser module in VCarve? Where did you find the dino file?

Yes using the laser module in vcarve makes aligning your carving and lasering so easy.for the dinosaur picture I just searched dinosaur clip art in Google and found a pic I liked then used vcarve to trace it .it’s nice how easy vcarve is to make your own SVG.files

I love it, I have a granddaughter named Cora, I have been on the fence about getting the laser but you may have just pushed me over :grinning:

The laser opens up so many more options with your projects. I really have fun trying new things with it .these were my first hybrid


That is so cool!!! Nice work!!! :+1::+1::+1:

Great job Like the concept

This is really cool work! Can you tell me how long it took to carve the 3d aspect? I just uploaded my first g-code file from meshcam to easel and it said the carving time was right at 4 hours. The piece is about 3” square and the z axis is .69”. Any thoughts on this would be really appreciated.

I set the rough cut to 120 Inp at .125 depth per cut with a .25 endmill that took 30 minutes .the finishing cut was set at 180 ipm at .04 depth with a .125 ball nose which took roughly 3.5 hours .depending on your wood and the 3d model I find it best to take fast shallow passes but 3d carving always takes a lot of time .I have yet to do one that doesn’t take 4 hours . I’m still new to this my self but as I cut I watch the machine and a lot of times i will stop and increase my speeds but I usually
start slow . you will get a feel for things the more you cut .
