Topic tags/keywords: cnc 3d texture wicker milling router bit

The hard part about 3D Carving with the CNC is not the tool path, but actually coming up with the 3D model in the first place. I had done some wicker models with my 3D printer for a client some time back and used the lessons I learned there to create this wicker panel.

It is 12” long by 2” wide and took about 1 hour to mill on my CNC Shark using a 1/16” ball nosed bit.

That is REALLY nice and stands as proof that, while you may not be pushing the chisels/router or whatever, as much art and talent go into set up as for many projects done by conventional means.

Here is the first fruits of my wicker 3D texture modeling I shared above.
Needs sanding and finish, but came out well.

Nicely done!!
A small baby crib would look outstanding with this.

Thanks htl,

The wicker sections on this model are only 1/8” wide, so doing a large section might not look properly proportioned.
I am also working on different textures and wider wickets.

Thanks Oldnovice!

The 3D texture models used in that project are available on my website as .stl files.
I also have loads of plans, some for sale, many for free.
