    my latest mpcnc creation… This is a giant 8′ x 4′ world map I was commissioned to do for a local church. the backboard is a full sheet of 1/2″ plywood, I set up a straightedge and hand cut the lines with a .25″ vbit with a router and then stained them different colors to give the illusion of separate boards. the front pieces were cut from 1/2″ ply in 4 different sheets (my machine can cut 2’x4′ (quarter sheet of plywood). then i stained, glued, and pin nailed the countries on. It was a pain to get everything exactly where it had to be, but I printed a grid that made it much easier.

    thank you! I don’t have a DXF, I found a vector map, so i edited it in illustrator (broke it into 4 pieces and cleaned it up) and then brought those vector files into aspire to create the gcode.

    another cool thing i forgot to mention is that due to the size of europe/asia… i had to cut it in 2 pieces. It’s really cool how accurately the borders jigsaw puzzled together to form the full landmass with very little sanding and filing to fit.

    Sorry, I never got around to posting the vector files, here are the ones i used. The full map plus the files i broke down for my machine (48″w x 32″t). The vcarve and the endmill paths are on different layers.
