I think I might have some lying around. Thanks for the tip!

I'm saying oops too often these days. I tried milling a vacuum adapter that I drew up in Fusion last night, only to discover that my step/mm on the gShield is wrong on all axes... by a lot. I looks like it's about 1.5mm or so off on the X and Y axes, and about 1.25mm off on the Z-axis.

The bottom hole of this adapter is supposed to fit around that inner collar (not sure what to call it) of the DeWalt 611.

I'm going to spend the rest of the night calibrating, and then I'll try milling this part out again tomorrow.

On a more positive note, the mis-scaled part turned out amazing! I milled it out of a piece of 20mm thick Maple using my 1/4" 2-flute carbide end mill, 3mm step down, up to 1000mm/s feedrate, 30,000 RPM. It was a walk in the park for this machine. I don't think I'm even barely pushing the boundaries, yet.

The ridges you can see on the fillets are approximately 0.3mm steps.

What software are you using to generate the 3D g code?

I used Autodesk Fusion 360 for that project.

Would you be willing to post your SVG and GCODE for this dust collection fitting? It looks awesome and I would like to try it for my 611.

Sure thing. Here's the URL to the project on my Fusion 360 hub account. You can download the Fusion 360 Archive file, which should also include the toolpaths, or you can convert to another format compatible with the program you're using.

I should note that the hose hole (for lack of a better term) is meant for a 32mm hose (1.25"). Also, I should have made the parting tabs a little higher. I think I made them .5mm high, which can very easily break while the spindle is still cutting... and very nearly did.

I can send you the NC file (G-Code), if you really want it, but it was compiled with my machine's specific machine configuration and end mill in mind. The feed rate, step over, and step down might not be right for your machine or the material that you're cutting. It's better to import the model into a CAM program and re-build the toolpaths for your own configuration.

And so it begins! MST3K geeks and RiffTrax fans, you might want to watch this project. I don't know if I'll be able to share the model files for this one, because at least one of them will certainly fall under copyright and trademark laws. But, I'll seek permission, and if they say yes, then I'll make them available. :D

It will become clear in my next post this weekend. This photo is just a teaser. I gathered up all the raw materials for the project and finished up some of the modeling this week, so we're nearly ready to to start milling and assembling.

Brian,

I happened across your vacuum attachment for the DNP611 (DWP611) spindle and really like the design. I was wondering if you might sell me one. Or be kind enough to send a .step file of the 3D Model, or a .dxf of the flat layout.

Thank you,

You'll probably want to adjust the design a little to suit your needs. The vacuum hose that I found at Home Depot is some non-standard size, I think. That said, you can download the model file in just about any format you want from here: http://a360.co/1Ei1wU4

After a couple of hiccups that set me back a week, I finally finished the poster light box. The next stage of this project is to attach the border and mill the decorative pieces on the Shapeoko, which will include an engraved version of the RiffTrax "bomb" logo, and at least half-a-dozen sharks.

I used a Snap Frame "Professional Series" aluminum poster frame for this project. These frames have pre-drilled holes so it can be attached to a lightbox or back plate. The light box is framed with 3x1 Poplar board and backed with 1/4" MDF. No corner braces are required for reinforcement, since the aluminum poster frame is quite rigid.

Aluminum tape is used to maximize internal reflection inside the box. The LED strips are laid on clear packing tape which is laid over the aluminum tape to avoid an electrical short. A 12V 8A power supply in the corner is wired to a 3-prong PC-style power connector and a 110V power switch.

This double-sided Sharkando RiffTrax poster is signed by Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett. It was a reward for Kickstarter backers, and is not available anywhere else.

The 360 link to your file doesnt work. am i doing something wrong?

Thanks!
