My Most Time Consuming Project to Date 2001
One of my First CNC Mass Produced Projects
These frames were also some of the first things I made with CNC. I must say it became a huge project and something I don't care to repeat.
Overall it probably took me 1 week spending anywhere from 3 to 10 hours per day to figure out exactly HOW to make this project come to life.
I had the idea in my head but NO CLUE how to put it to machining...
Problems I faced (other than not having a clue what I was doing!)
-The first problem was how to draw what I wanted in CAD
- How do I offset this (remember ACE Converter did not have offset back then)
-How do I exactly hold the plastic on the machine
-How do I make it so I can repeat the same program to make multiple parts
-What size endmill or cutting speed do I use
After a bag full of scraps, 2 broken endmills the frames started to come to life.
The end result was great but I don't plan to run this assembly line anytime soon :)
