So, in order to use my CNC machine, I have to make special builds for it.
Stuff intended for 3D printing has undercuts and tiny details that a CNC cutter just can't reach or do.
So, I've crafted up a large Grav Tank, a veritable transatmospheric yacht, for my first object to be CNC'd.
It starts as a simple sketch on graph paper. Usually, just one side.
I then filter out the graph lines and mirror the image for symmetry.
It doesn't need to be gorgeous, just enough to scan into my 3d program.
Here, you can see I was playing with comparison shots next to the Mega Merka project. I figured I would make the turrets swappable. Neat effect.
More on that later.
