Milled out that .stl (above) from a sheet of plaster. The holes are exactly the right size, and in the exact correct spot. The only thing that could have been better, was the tabs could have been 1mm longer on the outside each. Photo's below, showing the plaster cut out against the actual plate, with the M5 and M6 bolts put through.

Here's an updated STL, with the corrected tabs:

This version is accurate, and good to use. :)

If you need some other file format for it, you can try grabbing it from the Fusion 360 site here:

Nice work.

You made a model for fun or, you plan on making a mod for something, like endstop or what not?

Now, what I am missing to begin work on the 3D model, would be the Y plates... :P

I'm mucking around with designing an integrated end plate + spindle mount (no idea if it will turn out ok), so I needed something to work with. :)

It also gave me an opportunity for practising with Fusion 360, which I'm new to. ;)

I might be able to get the Y-plate done... but it's a slow/non-fun process, and I don't have a real need for the end result personally (yet). So, it won't be this week. :evil:

How are spindle mounts attached on commercial machines?

If memory serves, we’ve discussed alternate and quick change mounts in the past. I’ve been considering using a circular part in the ShapeOko 3’s spindle mount, but not really liking any of the design concepts I’ve come up w/ thus far. Also not wild about metal fatigue on it from (I either need to break down and get a DWP611 or make a new mount or a better adapter).

I'm actually kind of avoiding looking at the commercial machines much. Don't really want to have any patent issues with well funded companies. :shock:

Experimenting with ceramics/cements at the moment, which could allow for some interesting designs. Might not have the durability needed, but unsure.

Will be finding out in a few days. ;)

Whenever I need to "copy" a plate, I scan it on a flatbed scanner next to a ruler. Scale the picture appropriately in CAD and you can pretty much trace the whole thing to within .005"

Gah. I have a scanner, but didn't think of that. Thanks for the concept. :)

Working on pieces in Fusion 360 as well, here is the 600mm extrusion, 99% accurate. Inside might not be perfect but outside and hole placement should be good.

Cool. Want me to add you to my project in Fusion 360, so we have all the parts in one place?
