Trying to avoid learning by asking if someone can be paid (very little) to help

What I want to do is put the image of a buffalo in 3d on a panel that's 84" high and 118" wide. It will actually consist of 6 doors fitted tightly together (they pop out 2" when pushed in, then open on hinges). I have not determined the type of wood - test doors made from solid hickory, poplar, and hemlock are currently hanging to see how much they warp. Test doors are about 3/4" inch. real ones can be thicker. I have a friend who has a 22" wide CNC router who can do the cutting (don't know right now what machine he has, will find out). I have collected some candidate buffalo pictures from the web but have absolutely no artistic sense and would like to avoid the rather steep learning curve between knowing nothing and being able to do at least a half decent job of creating the gcode needed.

Is anyone interested in helping out? if so, please contact me rudy at winface.com

hi i am in Germany

Not clear what you exactly want
a Plate 3D sculp like
or a full 3D carve all sides

Wow!

Your buffalo is pretty much exactly what I have in mind - guess that's a "plate 3d sculpt"?

I don't know how big yours is, (particularly in terms of depth) or how scalable the gcode is but that image exemplifies the idea.

Now.. the wall this is going on is 118" (nearly 3M) wide by 90" (about 2.25M) from carpet to ceiling so net about 118 x 82 seems likely. My big issue, other than the gcode, is ensuring that the wood doesn't warp or expand/contract and that will be affected by the depth needed for the image. So, for this to work, how thick do you need the wood to be?

this is all scalable in all axis

Primary wood be to know what your friend can do
the toolsize BALL Cutter
the mashine Rough capability (( ok Feeds can be Changed )))
BUT nit the steps
IS Your friend able to get a G-code from a STL file i guess YES as he ownes a mashine

I will do a Gcode on your Request of the TOP tread

I have asked Euan for details on his machine. I know he can handle up to 22" in width and can feed whatever length is needed. He has many different cutters, and we can get anything needed.

What thickness should the wood be?

Thank you!

I should find out about machine options and scale during the next week or so and will get back to you (via this site) as soon as I have the info.

If the router in question runs LinuxCNC then you can just open the JPEG file in Axis.
That will automatically run the image-to-G-code application.
