General Information

My dad recently purchased an X-CArve as well and making all sorts of cool wood furniture. He wanted a 3D heart to put on a shelf and the like so I designed a heard in Fusion 360 and imported it into Easel. I LOVE the easy connection!!!

Copy project and cut it!!!

I initially designed this heart in Fusion 360, created a toolpath, exported g-code and imported it into Easel.

From here you are in pretty good shape as all you need to do is open my Easel project an copy it to your own project. Place wood in your machine (I recommend around 1/2") and clamp your stock to the middle of your machine. From there let er rip!!!

I'd love to know how you constructed this model in Fusion 360. I'd like to do something similar at a different scale but don't know how to turn a 2D SVG of a heart into the nice, three-dimensional shape you made here.

Hey Brian, I have created a video that shows the process to make something like this heart. You could use the Insert SVG from the Insert dropdown then follow the video to create the shape you are looking for. Hope it helps! https://autodesk.box.com/s/u0t6bcycezgwrhkalqk9r0bwzk119waj
