Made a video of 3D deer scene carving

Post by shelbycharged » Wed Oct 18, 2017 12:20 am

Hey All,
I've lurked here for about a year now since I got my Shapeoko 3 in November 2016 and haven't really made any posts.

Because I enjoy watching other peoples projects as much as making my own, I decided to try and document the machining of one of mine. I'm no Winston Moy when it comes to videos, but I gave it my best effort.

I made a cribbage board based off cnc nuts layout and shape and the deer scene available at design and make.

if you are interested, here is the link:

Constructive criticism is welcomed.

Thanks

Nice.

Just one question...
During the cutting operation, were you cleaning out the cut?

Please don't.
Instead cut twice.
(First one cut a bit further out, then an inner cut, so that the width of the cut is about 1.5x the width of the bit you're using.)

Also check any connectors to ensure that they haven't worked loose, or have corrosion on them.
What noises are you referring to Will? All the noises you hear in the video have been there since build. have I had issues with something since day 1 and not known better?

edit: now i'm scared to use my machine.

I get what you're saying and agree, I shouldn't stick my hands in there while it is running ever again. One question, how would this work with tabs?

Your video sounds fine.
