Contoured Surface Mill

This surface mill uses contours to inform the toolpaths for the CNC machine. The output surface is one that is much more informative in its design as the contours that make up the surface in the digital program are able to be seen in the milled surface. It also gives a much more textured feel to the surface. Here, a quarter-inch bit was used, and perhaps a half-inch bit may allow for more defined “ridges” to be shown.
