What is 3D Carving?
3D-Carving is the ability to carve with a ball nosed and or tapered bit to generate fully 3 dimensional pieces with a lot of detail. The size of the radius of the tip of the router bit influences the amount of detail you can achieve. The smaller the radius of the tip the the finer the detail you can carve.
3D Carving is most commonly used for machining compound curves and large radius and intricate details.
