Celtic Horse "Kelpie"
I discovered an interesting drawing of what I first called a Celtic Horse. It may have originated as a basic design for tattoo art. I thought it would make an interesting pendant for a necklace. Further research reveals it is a water horse, hippocamp or more friendly Scottish or Celtic name, a Kelpie. So Kelpie it is...
So I copied the Kelpie drawing into Vectric Aspire and did a vector bitmap trace to get the drawing into a vector format. I decided on an approximately two inch overall diameter. The rest was all pure Aspire creative effort. You can see the rendering from Aspire is exactly what was produced in the CNC 3D carving.
I use a taper spiral bit with a .003" flat tip and 6 degree (per side) taper. Run time at ~15 fpm was 1 hour 45 minutes.
