Programmed and machined a T-800 head from thingiverse:

T-800 Picture

Here is a finished scull video from all sides:

In the 1st op I milled the base with a 1/4-20 tapped hole right where my Z0Y0Z0 will be.

Then I mounted the base on a square fixture using the tapped hole. This way as I index the square fixture in the vise, my part Z0Y0Z0 remain in the same spot.

2nd op was the back of the scull

3rd op was the face, and the 4th and 5th were the sides

Here is a YouTube video of some of the 3rd op machining. Warning Loud Noise!

May i ask how you were able to do it on a 3 axis cnc? Rotating it after every square done , but what about the last one? Nevertheless it look amazing

Hi, I just updated the article with a video, so you can get a better idea how it was held in the vise

How do you convert STL format to solid?

I didn't. I had to import the STL. For machining Fusion treats mesh almost like a solid.
