My machine is built and tested with a pen. http://youtu.be/kNCihP-yK0Y
I just mounted my spindle and ready to try cutting some 1″ and 1/4″ foam board then move onto 1/4″ mdf.
Would anyone have any recommended settings for cutting that material? I’m going to be using 1/8″ endmill bit.
I have some good settings on the 2.5d tutorial.
Awesome, thanks I’ll check that out.
I did a test today, went slow. http://youtu.be/-JEHJ2DxuQc
The dollar store sells 20″x30″x3/16″ foam board which is working nicely for testing. Also picked up some 1″ foam board from hd.
I think it was asked before about seamed stainless steel tubing. I can confirm that it works well. I have the seam facing the bottom. Paid about 15 bucks for a ten foot length of 1″, .065″wall.
Thanks so much for designing this cnc machine and making it open source. You can tell a lot of thought went into creating this and the build went together very easy.
