It does look pretty good with the rough passes...but you should really see it with the finish passes . The edges of the rough passes are too sharp to keep it like that, you'd spend an eternity sanding it so you didn't cut your fingers off by touching it.

Well @#(*$&. Seems like the edge of the bit caught something, or some rapid move moved too fast, and took a nice chunk out of my material. I have to re-make 3 parts. *sigh*. I checked the program, and this shouldn't have happened. Gr.

Oh crap.. that's gotta hurt. From the looks, I guess it happened in the end of the process when almost finished?

When else would it have happened. Isn't that the way these things work?

Oh well. I found some material, and I'm already most of the way done with roughing out the shapes to be CNCed. You can be damn sure next time nothing like this will happen!

Oh believe me, I looked for that chunk for about 20 minutes. The aluminum is for sure a pile of chips, and the acrylic is nowhere to be found.

Ow!
My guess is the computer had a brainfart. It's happened to me once already, and it scared the hell out of me.
It seems to happen right near the very end of a large operation.

Good news! I'm finally caught up to where I was about 2 weeks ago. It wouldn't have taken this long, but I just started my last quarter and a lab is kicking my ass! We coded a logo by hand to run on the CNC (g-code). Just XYZ points. My logo was a little excessive, thus why I've been quite busy. It has about 1000 lines of code! Take a look!





Cute, eh?

Well, here's what you've all (hopefully) been waiting for. Dead pieces! Argh. *******s!



And, a nice shot of the top piece on it's way to be finished, finally! I'm very happy that it all worked out in the end (fingers crossed) and I didn't have to scrap anything.





You'd be surprised as to how light the thing is now. I probably machined half of each aluminum piece off with the roughing pass. More pics to come soon. Sanding, fitting, and sleeving time is almost near!

G-coded manually? That's insane! The instructor must be a sadist.
There hasn't been a need to code anything manually since the TRS80 days.
