Today was actually a nice day in the shop. I had time to sit down with my CNC and vCarve Desktop to work on some 1911 grips. I’ve been using my Remington R1 as my test fit piece. These were cut cut but I did t get them sanded and a finish put on them today. I guess I can work on that tomorrow afternoon. mahogany on the top, Purple Heart and Leopard wood on the right. These are all cut from G10 material. Slate color G10 cut with a checking pattern A nice fit on my 1911. Slate G10 Stripes with Mag release cut out. Red and Black G10 with Dots. I sanded this with micro sanding paper then buffed it on my 3 wheel buffer. Nice look. Each set gives the 1911 a total different look. I’ve got to get a few more cut tomorrow. It’s back to work at the Gun Store Monday.
I wanted to cut and design or modify some grips for my 1911 pistols with my CNC. I was able to download a couple of 3D models to use but they are in igs file format and I can’t import that into my Vcarve Desktop. I don’t have autocad so I’m looking for something to convert the files to dwg files. There are some free converters out there but I’m afraid to use any I don’t know about. Looking for some advice or if someone can convert them for me. I appreciate any help that can be offered. Ive cut one set but they were not sized exactly right.
