OTHER CUT DESIGNS

Please note: These renderings use the same material settings (in terms of refraction and transparency) for the sake of uniformity of display. Some of the cuts were designed for different stone types--try using different materials settings--a little change can make a large difference in how the model renders. Check the "Materials" section of this website for more information.

We have had reports of a few people downloading the Zip files only to discover that there are no 'contents' in the archives. The reason appears to be due to the use of 'download accelerator' applications. If this occurs, temporarily disable such apps.

Mount Ida Heart True

(5K ZIP -DXF file)

Variation of: Mount Ida Heart by Bob Keller

Bob's Rock Shop
http://www.rockhounds.com

In these true heart variations, the only changes were to create the 'notch' or cleft in the upper area. In real lapidary work, this sort of inward cut is difficult due to limitations of the basic equipment, but in 3D work, all it takes is moving a few vertices.
