its gonna be similar to this once i get the shapes done
Wow...this is going to be one great mod....keep going.
I REALLY TRY right now the mdf just lays around in the workshop and silently yells at me: *whisper* "rooooouuuuuutttteeeeeee meeeeeeeeee rooooououuuuuttteeeeee meeeeeee"
Ah, btw did i mention we now have a plasma cutter and going to hook it up to the cnc soon ???
Any updates on this one?
wow!!! updates now is a great project.
im sorry, still nothing new here, this will take some time...
I is GULL-IBLE too....dratt....
Ok ok... V3 is running, so after figuring out that the 12mm bit holder MIGHT not hit the mold while routing ( im still not exactly sure, gonna be fun to route them... )
I glued all the parts together:
Using 10mm drill bits for the reference holes
to be continued....
to be continued.... Nice to hear from you Lenne! Interesting looking mold. what's next ?
Routing the rough mold, then sanding and laquring it a couple of times to get a nice surface for laminating...
Guys, it did actually work ******* awesome
This was just the first roughing pass, ill do another finish run on it.
i took some video footage aswell but i still have to edit and upload it...
Finished routing the first mold;
Clamped the rough mdf block down
Bracket for reference
Finished first roughing pass
Second fine pass
Polygons from the drawing, unfortunately when i did the nautilus drawing i still worked with poly meshes and not nurbs surfaces
And after the last restmill pass
got new working shoes
( or wood in this case )
It's a mold. A little mud and sanding will fix the polygons.
I'm just glad this started.
Set up another comp nearby so you can model for contest #6 while you babysit.
The mold looks amazing itself, now put some carbon fiber on that bitch
Its not exactly a david hidden in the mdf... its much better
the bad polys sit in between the top and bottom half of the case covers anyway, ittl be cut away later
soonish... first: tedious sanding, soaking in epoxy, tedious sanding, fillering ?, tedious sanding, fillering, tedious sanding, laquing with an "indicator" coat, tedious sanding, clearcoat....
btw guys any ideas for the big "ring" part of the case material wise ? It shall be laquered glossy white when its finished, alu would be to expensive / would take to long to route i think, any ideas ?
vacuum formed plastic?
hmm, i dont think that that would be sturdy enough ?
Don't stop now Lenne... "soonish... first: tedious sanding, soaking in epoxy, tedious sanding, fillering ?, tedious sanding, fillering, tedious sanding, laquing with an "indicator" coat, tedious sanding, clearcoat"
.....you're on a roll!
