I ventured into 3d carving yesterday with less than satisfying results. I felt the image was strong and the detail was good in EstlCAM and the rough detail was recongnizable, but the detail was lost in the finish step. I was using a 3.75mm ball end mill using a spiral cut for the roughing cut and a horizontal cut for the finishing pass.
It was cut on a MPCNC 24x24 work area.
I’ve included a picture of the finished piece.
Any advice would be helpful.
