This post I wanted to dedicate to other work to do with this machine. With a thin tool can cut sheets of any non-metallic material, achieving precise pieces in a very quick manner.
The first thing I could think was to cut a wooden structure, 5mm plywood with a single lip cutter 3mm diameter. The CAM programming process is really easy, because with a contouring operation in CATIA and go selecting the lines one by one, you’re done. Later I have been learning to use other CAM programs such as Vectric Aspire, for these things really are much more agile.
Imagine the possibilities of any 3D we generate, we can obtain the skeleton-based or volume of any geometry.
But the chances of this technique not only end here. There is a fairly wide range in the world of radio control hobby
For example, the RC model airplane
You see, the first step would be to generate the 3D model of the surface of the fuselage, but it’s something that today can quite easily get Internet as there are many free models out there. In this geometry, it is relatively easy to draw the “ribs” of the plane, of course it takes some knowledge of aeronautics, but for someone who knows, or simply copying other aircraft concepts seems a feasible task, or at least possible.
And with a router this can be done using this type of machining, having no limits when trying to make something.
Being a flat piece, we can also manufacture it with this type of machining. Now, to be trendy, good chassis should be carbon fiber. Today, the Internet can get plates made of pre-impregnated carbon fiber, oven cured and quality standards at competitive prices. If we get one, we can design and build our own carbon fiber chassis for a car.
For machining carbon, while cutting conditions are not complicated, you need a special tool, because carbon has the distinction of being tremendously abrasive. A high speed steel cutter, you can take just over half an hour cutting carbon. So you have to have special strawberries, which of course are more expensive. I got a diamond-coated tool, especially for cutting carbon Ø3mm, I hope I last a long time, because it cost more than 50 € …
