Re: Greetings

Hello Jose!

We are a friendly bunch in this forum. Thanks for sharing the files.

If you get a chance can you post some pics of your items? Always fun to see what others are doing.

About the english, some of us do not speak it very well either and we have been wrecking it all our lives. :shock:

Re: CNC machining

Well, I wish I had a nickel for every piece that did not turn out the way I thought it would. For the longest time I cut everything way too deep. Looked great in preview, not so much in the real carving.

Re: International Cheese Board

Has your question been answered?

Did a little voice whisper in your ear?

Was it an epiphany of sorts?

Is this the vectric forum?

Re: Shapeoko BitSetter

I think what you are asking is if the post can handle different tool types and put then all in one file? If so, you need to find a post with ATC in the name. Even though you do not have an automatic tool changer, the code generated should pause the machine and allow you to change tools, then the mac...

Re: 3D NOOB

Thanks. Sounds like good advice and I will start looking at the vids. Also thanks for letting me know about the tip as I would have entered the diameter not the radius. Have another question, when ordering the models, there is a choice of V3M, STL or PNG. Which one should I order? I tend to avoid a...

Re: CNC machining

Nice job, good finish. If you do not mind a bit of advice? Ease up on the background texture. It may just be the camera angle you used but the background to me is interfering with your design. That is just my opinion. . . . I usually do not comment about work folks do, but this one is so interesting...

Re: Faceshield design if anyone wants.

Well, things are going swimmingly. From all I watched on YouTube it sounded like one needed to be a magician to print ABS. I just used their recommended settings and both parts turned out nice. I was also expecting a shop full of nasty fumes. That did not happen either. Murphy was going in and out o...

Re: Faceshield design if anyone wants.

Ted, don't get just glass, get a mirror. The glass used for mirrors is held to a higher stander and is much flatter than just plan old glass. Yea, but I am a low glass kinda guy! I got some mirror around here, only problem is that it is 1/4 plate glass, way too thick and heavy. Thanks for that tip ...

Re: Faceshield design if anyone wants.

Thanks for all the tips BDM! Rest easy though. The machine runs in my shop and does not run unless I am in the shop. BUT! For the low, low price of $30 it is worth it. Way ahead of you on the cube. Printed one yesterday, not too shabby for out of the box, within .07mm on all axis. I have full 3D mod...

Re: Help with how create tool path and machine this part

What this is would dictate how I did it.

If it is not an appearance object I would just fixture it up in a drill press and use a forstner bit and be done in about 10 minutes.

Re: speed in air

Those are decent machines. The problem is going to probably be in a control setting. Check your maximum permissible travel speed, accelerations, things along those lines. I do not run UCCNC so I cannot help you with that. No doubt someone who does will be along shortly to help with those settings.

Re: speed in air

The simple answer is no. When the spindle is "in the air" it is probably in a rapid traverse, aka "G0" move. That is totally controlled by your machine. I would not bet that you are losing steps in the air on a rapid. What "seems" to happen is not always correct. BTW, you have not told us what axis ...

Re: Faceshield design if anyone wants.

Actually, one of the biggest surprises with 3D printing is the percent of 'infill' required. A 20% infill is very strong. Initially, I thought it was going to require 100%. AHAH! I love to over engineer things too. Warms my heart. Gerry, thanks for that link to the PRUSA pdf file, interesting stuff...
