    I have a large piece of oak. I want to mill out a skull, face, or horse etc (something like that) something impressive. Max dimentions X=470 Y=300 W and Z= 110mm . Minimum hopefully above 100x100X60mm
    Just to see what my machine is capable of, before I dive in and buy software such as "Vectric 3D".

    Anything would be appriciated.

    You can download trial versions of all the vectric software for evaluation prior to buying & they all have sample files you can cut on your own machine, sorry don't have anything suitable myself as I'm really still trying to get set up properly.

    Thanks for your reply Martin. Its a shame that all the vectric sample files are cheesy. I need something worth doing to appriciate it.

    meshcam
    MeshCAM - CNC Software - CAD/CAM Software

    15 day free trial , import a BMP and it`ll turn it into a 3D relief. Meshcam Art is included in the trial and gives you more control over modelling.

    Or find a free STL you like and import that:

    Think Art is included as part of trial , it allows bit more control over how it iterprets z-depth, its also twice the price to register.
