I designed this as with 99% of my designs. I took it into inkscape and clicked “Display” then “Outline”.
I then clicked on “Path” and “Trace Bitmap”. In the pop up window I clicked “Update” then “ok”.
This is how I do most of my projects due to being in the habit when cutting on a scroll saw.
Start the project in Easel.
Choose your material and put in the dimensions of the wood you will be using. My chosen wood was 3/16 thick (0.188).
Choose your depth per pass (I chose 0.040 depth per pass to avoid breaking bits). This came out to 5 passes per cut.
Choose “inside” for the cuts unless you want to clear out only a certain amount of depth…then you would choose “Fill”.
Choose the per minute cut you’re comfortable with. (I chose 5 inches per minute -again to avoid breaking bits.
I used the stock 24 volt spindle.
Your specific settings can vary depending on your comfort/confidence level…as well as if you use a trim router or not.
Make sure the bit is “kissing” the surface after securing it down with clamps. Home everything and hit CARVE!
