    Re: CNC egg shell carving

    :-)

    man you got patiency like ten other together..
    I understand the process that you glue it on the holders....

    but after you mill it theres left no rigidity..

    how you can remove the ready egg?

    another question, what diameter that tool you are using?

    This is INDEED art. It's really great and inspiring to watch your work and patience. Must have cracked a bunch of them before you mastered this.

    Re: CNC egg shell carving

    Thanks John and A_Camera.
    And yes, cracked quite a lot before the machine and software have been optimized : )

    Saw a beautiful iron work pattern in a shopping mall last week.
    Took a pic and engraved the pattern on an goose egg shell.

    The membrane inside the egg shell has not yet been removed.
