Default Who is cutting gun grips and checkering on CAMASTER?

Getting familiar with the CAMASTER product line- who here is doing work like this, and what hoops does one have to jump through to get this result?

I have tinkered with grips, there are guys here far more advanced than me, but I think machining those grips would be well within the capability of CAM using a very small [1/32] tapered ballnose, which is what I used for these 1911 grips with a similar pattern.

Challenging part would be creating the file ,,, Or not, depending on your software abilities.

Wow, Doug, those are really nice grips! Did you use the two rail sweep on them...or some other design technique?

I didn't create the grip file, so I skipped the hard part !

I did make alot of different textures for them though, once you have the basic grip file there are alot of options for customization - I'll post the file when/if I find it..

I think this is it, not even sure who to credit but its public use

Xray,
Thanks for sharing.
1911 style would be the starting point it seems, as the radius is the same over the length of the part.
Revolver grips, and their compound curvature...that's what I'm having a hard time getting solid 'can do' examples of.

For the sharp diamonds, seems one might try an engraving bit, 60 degrees or so.?

Might have luck with an engraving bit or even vbit, tapered ballnose is my preference as it works for textures, smooth radius and whatever small 3d model you care to include, all in 1 cut.
