Re: Drawer pulls

The working area of my machine is about 22"x60" I meant for it to fit just over 24" by 60" but I miscalculated when I designed the table. Not the hugest deal, but can be a pain every now and again when I want do something a little wider. I think torsion box tables are the way to go, especially if yo...

Re: Drawer pulls

For the countertop I'm going to use melamine as the main mold material, I will only be using the cnc to make the sink cutout part, which is sortof an oval/hexagon under mount style Porcelain sink. For the recess on the handles, I made a quick model of the upside down dome shape in rhino, and exporte...

Drawer pulls

Wanted to figure out a way incorporate the CNC into the bathroom vanity I'm working on, but the girlfriend isn't that into inlays or cutouts all over the house, so I decided to make some fancy drawer pulls. I think they turned out pretty good. They are just dry-fit for now, but glued in and stained ...

Re: Need some educated 3d printer opinions...

Good point on the MSDS's... We work with a lot of chemicals already that are probably worse than the resins for SLA printers, but its definitively worth looking into. We are interested in the powder based printers as well. I havent done a whole lot of research yet (I was just told about this today),...

Need some educated 3d printer opinions...

Not sure if this is necessarily the right place to be posing this question, but I know that a lot of people on this forum are quite knowledgeable about 3d printers. So I work at a large format sign shop that prides itself on staying at the forefront of technology. We have 2 grand-format vutek, 1 Zun...

Re: Business Sign

I used Adobe Illustrator to design the logo. When finished with the final artwork, you want to convert/expand all text items into curves (meaning it is no longer editable text, but vector shapes as far as the program is concerned). I then save that file as an .AI or a .PDF. I use Vectrics Aspire for...

15mm GT2 belting

Finally got everything in and together! Havent ran a real job on it yet, since apparently everyone's advice to not get the TB6560 was pretty valid. Missing steps and rough movement. (part of the problem could be the less than desirable computer I am using) I jogged it around the table plenty to make...

Business Sign

V-Carved and Infilled sign for my brother-inlaw\'s business.  I also originally suggested that name for his business and created the logo.  He owes me!   Wood is mahogany.

Re: Coffee table

thanks for the props+constructive criticism! in the case of the legs, its sortof a form follows function design... they are modular, enabling the table to be flat packed/stored, and have many different configurations at different heights and aesthetics. *please no reproductions unless authorized.
