CNC Machined Wood Tree of Life Relief

Relief Carvings

Create relief carvings by designing a project from scratch or from your existing images, 2D vectors, and 3D models.

V-Carvings / Inlays

The Medial-Axis Carving operation generates cutpaths for V-bits, ballnose endmills, and even tapered ballnose cutters. Carve images, vectors, and text into anything.

Halftones

Our stippling operations are unlike anything else available and our 3D carving operations generate toolpaths that can be used for more than just relief carvings. Cut halftones, lithoplanes, and other interesting visuals with them too.
