First True 3D Part
It's my first 3D part. I tried this out just for kicks. It was so cool watching the machine use the Z-axis for more then just plunging. I am not sure if I was more thrilled at the 3D part or using the ball endmill. I love the rounded corners.

All done. Not exactly what I was expecting but still really nice. Now to make more :)
NEXT TIME: More detail to the part. Also cut out the part so you can see it easier. maybe a smaller endmill to show more detail.
