So my other project for the month of December I planned to make a chirstmas gift for someone on the carvey but that switched when I was having trouble coming up with an idea for that. So what I did was I found a picture of my swim team logo on google images but it was in horrible quality, so I traced over it in photoshop to the point where I thought it was good. But the only way it would carve is if it I used a 1/32 bit which is a super thin bit that I didnt know we werent supposed to use, so in the middle of the carving I realized it had broke. So the next day I went back and made the lines thicker in photoshop to a point where it would all carve with the 1/16 bit so after that I went to the carvey and it got carved and looks great.
What I learned: Quick ways to Trace images in photoshop, Some do's and dont's when workng with the carvey, How to create and customize a workspace in photoshop to what you need.
Over the course of one week I used the 3-D Doodler. It is a pen that can draw in the air by using similar things to a 3-d Printer. I was expecting it to be easy to work with because of comercials I had seen that made it look like a 2 year old could use them. But in reality it took 2 days just to figure out how to get them up and working and then another couple days to figure out all the little tricks to it. I did end up getting it to work and I used one of the templates that came with the doodler. The template was 'hipster glasses'. What you did is you would make the front part, than the two sides of them and put it all together.
What I learned for next time:
