Han Solo trapped in Delrin?

Post by Improbable Construct » Thu Oct 04, 2012 2:58 am

I have some scrap delrin laying around so I milled Han Solo into a piece.
This chunk is about 2" x 3.5".'

Milled with a 1/16" ball nose bit
800 mm/min feed speed
10% step over.

Sorry for the bad pictures. Shiny black things are really hard to get good shots of.

Pretty cool but we really want is princess leia in a jabba slave costume.
No seriously great work pls say more about software? What did you use to get it to this point.
I just placed an order for a 1/8" ball end mill and you have me wishing I put in for a 1/16" also.
And also: is this 800mm/min in all dimensions, with the new z axis upgrade you are just leaving that a high number?
Shapeoko #298, dual drive upgrade, acme z axis, open bed endplates and a slightly larger ("expanded desktop") work area!

When your doing 3d milling you really want to keep the speeds and feeds the same on all three axis. It tends to give a smoother surface with less imperfections. Delrin you also want to run fast as it likes to push and not cut if you try to go slow.

I am indeed running it at 800 mm/mn in all three axis. If I try it again I am going to bump the speed up and see what happens.
it was only cutting 0.00625" off per pass so speed should not be an issue.

The model came from Thingiverse.
http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1274

I imported it into my CAM software and created a roughing path with a 1/4" end mill and a finishing path using a 1/16" ball nose mill.
Total running time just under 2 hours.

Very, very nice!

Now, purely for symmetry, I want carbonite V-wheels, idlers and lead nut for my ShapeOko. :D

I ran another try of this today.
The larger one is the new one.

I ran this one with a zero degree raster path

It came out about the same as the first one but with out the visible corners from the offset path.
