Just like the title says I would like to get into edge lit acrylic and have a few good ideas that I would like to try. Is there a good thread on doing this type of work start to finish with tooling recommendations? I am ready to buy a few bits for this but I know nothing about the edge lit procedure...

Re: Still a newb and have a few question

I have a friend that has the scan anything and he basically said he cant get it to work in a way this is no super time consuming.

Re: looking for videos cut2d drawings etc.

I agree. I just don't want to spend to much on this until I am more familiar with all the different options etc. Basically I want to get my feet wet with cut 2d for a while and get used to using different software, tooling, edge finishing, etc. Its a lot to take in being a guy that doesn't have to m...

Still a newb and have a few question

I have been manufacturing some covers and other misc items and the way I get the templates is I take tape and outline the part I want to make off the original part.

Re: looking for videos cut2d drawings etc.

yes they are all joined together at the end of my drawing session. So when I click on the piece it highlights the entire piece unless I have holes or something thet need to be routed on the line or inside etc. Really it works the way it is but would cut down the cutting time significantly if it just...

Hi I am still fairly new to this cnc. I built my machine and have made some products as well as made a few dollars from it in the past few weeks.
