I did not have much success on the roundel front using that method.Dang. It did look like it'd need more effort involved.I wonder, and sorry this isn't quite intended for this thread, where the original roundel plug came from? Is it possible it was a combination of a few flanges/surrounds etc to create the shape, or was it built as per the way you are, from plaster of paris etc etc.

Quote from: Theta Sigma on Jan 10, 2014, 06:28 amI based the roundel cross section on the graphic that Teletran posted here:http://tardisbuilders.com/index.php?topic=1086.0Then I traced the graphic using lines and arcs in Google Sketchup to get a solid cross section. Then I extruded the cross section into a circle, and here is the result.Well, it's a start anyway. I'm pretty proud of myself since I just started learning Google Sketchup tonight.Here is a link to the sketchup file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9wuQYOPzaXceHFDM1FTMXhwdGc/edit?usp=sharingHopefully there is a way to convert this to AutoCAD, etc. This doesn't solve the entire problem though, because for CNC machining you'd still have to define a tool path.
