Metalfusion from Finland has developed an interesting method of creating CNC routed halftone images using a single v-bit router bit. Just like a news paper prints images using dots of ink this process produces dots of different sizes by plunging the v-bit to varying depths. He has developed the software which allows normal images to be converted into files that are ready to be cut on a CNC machine. It isn’t a quick process though for example the apple image is recreated with 3774 individual dots.
