I order one flute so soon I should be on track. next few days probably I will be cutting some upgrade for machine case for electronic some parts for my dust Shue, parts for my new printers. For shure I need to dial speed of…[Read more]
In Estlcam when you select move, there are 2 boxes available to select. By default it selects your cuts, which is the top box. You just need to select the box below it to move the drawing layers. It is really slick. The more I use Estlcam, the more I like it. Well worth the money!
This is my first build and I have begun 3d printing all of the necessary parts and was wondering whether or not I need to print the pineapple coupler if I am using a 5 mm to 8 mm flex coupler? does this part replace the pineapple? Again this is my first build so thanks for the help.
There are a few supports on TV, anything will work really you only need one per side and it isn’t doing too much.
I was asking the superpid guys last night for a bulk buy but it looks to be out of the question, they did tell me next month is a 15% off deal. I don’t know of anyone that actually has one but I do think it can solve a lot of issues.…[Read more]
I have been getting up the CNC learning curve with an X-Carve at a local MakerSpace, and using MDF. The next step in mold quality is usually something like Corian, but in general, the advantage is usually more parts from one mold. On the other hand, removing a big part of one face of MDF brings huge movement because of stress…[Read more]
What is the base mold material?
I think if you want to keep it real nice you might want to do stainless rails and build a long rectangle with a set of supports on the long side. The short cross member will support the whole machine on the long rails so the one long cross member shouldn’t be an issue.
I can’t honestly say what tolerances to…[Read more]
I am looking at the MPCNC for the subject application. I would like to run both wing molds and accompanying fuselage molds in one pass without moving the stock. Working area needs to be on the order of 300-400mm x 2000mm. The critical dimension relates to airfoil reproduction in the finished mold (Z).
In the past, I have used parallel finishing…[Read more]
None of the built-in post processors work. You need a Marlin post processor – assuming you are using the Marlin firmware.
Look at this post.
I am new to MPCNC and I have my build almost completed.
I have a larger CNC machine which I made and uses regular stepper drivers and Mach3 to create and print my files.
I use Vectric Aspire to create my G-code. When I save my G-code to file I am given the option of saving it into many flavors. Does anyone know which one I should use to…[Read more]
