In preparation for the Railroad Hobby Show in Mass. we had to design something that was model railroad related. So using Sketchup, I came up with a design for this bridge. I created the tool paths in V Carve and will share the files below.
The bridge was made from 1/4 clear pine “hobby boards” from Lowes/Home Depot. All parts were cut using a 2mm 2 flute end mill. You can modify the tool in V Carve, just be sure to recalculate the tool paths.

It’s amazing! Good job!
Actually I’m mounting my Stepcraft 600 kit and, it would be great to make the project! Altough I ordered it with the WinPC-NC software, I will order the UCCNC because I think is really important to work with G-Code. I’m buying all the stuff in Germany because I’m from Spain
What feed of rate do you use? And what cut depth in each pass?
Do you use this bit?:
I’m thinking to buy it also.
I have a Dremel 3000 (wich is 130W), so I think I will have to do it a little bit slower than you
