I am trying to make a pulse jet engine with an argus type valve. Below is a picture of one of the reed valve retainers. These are the most complicated parts (geometry wise) in the entire engine.
The part will be machined out of 5/8in thick 1.5in wide aluminum bar that will be cut to the proper length prior to machining. Those are the exact external dimensions of this part meaning that the machining should ONLY be done to cut out the holes, channels, and other features there should be no tool pathways around the perimeter of this block.
The only machine I have is a Fireball V90 cnc router with a Bosch colt router on it. I have metal cutting endmills and ball mills for it as well as a spray mist cooling system hooked up to it. This machine is more than capable of machining aluminum with shallow passes.
Now the part is double sided but that is not the problem. My main issue is cutting the angled cuts which are CRITICAL in the functionality of the pulse jet.
I have pointed arrows toward the problem causing cuts in this picture.
This type of part is something that I would be able to machine immediately notice there are no angles. This would be simple to set up in cambam.
DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS??? I would really appreciate any input
I have attached the STL file for this part if dxf files are needed I can post them as well. I opened it just fine in the latest version of Cambam.
