Re: Removing aluminum tabs

I'm curious how watertight it is and if it prints at full size without needing to modify it.
How close to 100% size.

Re: Removing aluminum tabs

Nice!
Without the 360 Light Box making a 3D model becomes hard. Consistent lighting makes all the difference in the world.
Now do you have a printer to print that skull out?

Re: Removing aluminum tabs

Great! I'll be using some of my extra OpenBeams extrusions to make my 360 Light Box hopefully today. Do you save your captures as a 3D model? If so what app? If not, try 123D Catch http://www.123dapp.com/catch and or Momento http://memento.autodesk.com/try-memento Lighting of the model is paramount ...

Re: Removing aluminum tabs

Well I made one. Very happy with it :-) http://www.manmademayhem.com/?p=1298 Nice blog! Yea I love this tab remover. My 'purchased unit' helps with making my 1/8" waste boards too as I don't have a table saw. Also I liked what you did with the 360 degree light box you talked about on your blog site...

Re: Removing aluminum tabs

Hey, cool font on those numbers... May I ask what it is? Also, I just started dabbing in Al milling. Can you give me an idea with what bits and milling parameters you have been successful? I basically went through the fonts I had in illustrator and chose the ones I wanted (four different fonts) and...

Removing aluminum tabs

I have been cutting .25" aluminum and have learned the value of having tabs (since I don't have a vacuum table). But one thing that always bugged me was how to remove the tabs. I've used a Dremel to remove them in the past and then followed up with a grinder. I was fine with the solution until recen...

Carbide Motion Feature Request

If/when Carbide Motion gets some new features I would like one put on the list. Home Button. After setting the router's position (zero, zero, zero) I think a nice feature would be a 'Home' Button that sends the router back to; X-0 Y-0 Z-maybe 10mm While cutting you are given a 'Pause' and or a 'Quit...
