first ever job

Post by MTLCHSR »

This is my first use of the Vectric software. As well as the router (Vertigo M2) for that matter. Had never done a job prior... and customer wanted this done to finish off the bike. - no pressure ! :wink: Custom made chopper bike housing. T6 Aircraft ali. Just drew the part in Aspire. Followed the chart with the tool and path settings... watched the preview... looked good. Set the home and surface and away we went. (Well... I had watched a lot of the tutorials before hand so I did know a wee bit of what to expect)

Very nice indeed. What tool did you use? ali = aluminum?

I remember many years ago (around 2002 timeframe) I really wanted to get into CNC. But the lack of support and videos really turned me off at that time. Of course I was a musician and got into building my recording studio instead. But my point is that unlike today, there wasn't much for support back then, unless you were a big business with a big budget... lol.
