    Default How 'bout some pics of stuff you've MADE with your CNC Router?

    One thing we don't see (at least I don't) is pics of stuff that you have made with your DIY CNC routers. There isn't a forum for that is there?

    I mean, I know the focus here is on building machines, but we build them to make things - right? So let's see some of the stuff your machines can do!

    Thanks,
    Wally

    Wow, I haven't done a single personal job for myself or anyone else since my machine started rurring a year or so ago.

    Coolest thing I've made so far is this hardwood floor medallion.

    I am working on a craftsman style lamp.

    Here is a 5 foot prop I made for a friend.

    Yes, we mounted it to a midget-mustang experimental plane and ran it. I have no pics of the finished prop, though. I was too excited to get it out of my garage.

    That's the biggest coaster I've ever seen.

    Man this is kismet. I am building a wood router and I was just talking to a friend of mine about some of the things that can be made with a CNC machine. As an example I said that I was thinking about making a large prop with engraving as art for another friend of ours who's really into RC flying.

    Any chance I can get the DXF (or whatever type of) file you used for that prop?

    Here's something I did for a CAD/CAM class a week or two ago.

    I put a grid over the Carmen pic in Corel.
    Then set up a coordinate system and used it to create some ridiculous splines in Inventor.
    Imported the Inventor Part into EdgeCAM and created the G-Code.
    Finally, the 'clock' was cut on our light-weight CNC Dremel tool here at McMaster University. You can let me know how close I got to the original Carmen! Clearly there are some limitations in detail since we were using a 1/8" bit.

    The plastic sheet we used is kind of a sandwhich. The core is red with about a 1/64" thick white layer on the top and bottom surfaces. Interesting stuff. Supposed you could do the same by painting the upper surface of your workpiece, although the paint may have a tendency to chip.

    Email me at rforney AT forneydesigns .com , I will send you a 3dm, IGES, or something like that. My rhino files never did export to autocad very well.

    Rob,
    That skull design came out great. Man you guys are killing me. I can't wait to get mine done. It will be a while yet, but these pics sure make me itchy.
