I made a rack to organize tools and materials.
※I didn't use the part descrived in the following work flow in my product. Just for description.
[MANAGE]→[Tool Library]→[New Mill Tool]
Input the information about my mill.
Set an axis orientation and a position of an origin. I selected [Select Z axis/plane & X axis].
Set the size of a stock.
Select a tool and confirm settings below.
Set the Crearance Hight, Retract Hight, Feed Hight, Top and Bottom hight. I set the bottom hight to -0.2mm from model bottom to completely cut to the bottom.
Set the Maximun Roughing Cutdown I set it to half of the diameter of the mill.
If you want to make uncut part, you should select [Tabs] menu and input data. You can choose the size and the position of tabs.
Edit the Gcode file on editer as follow. If I skip this process,the tip of the endmill moves a surface of a material. After that, I copied the file to my USB and took it to the machine.
This is a CNC machine in my lab. The work size of it is 1200mm x 1200mm.
Press power button and insert USB memory. Press [F1] key to return to home.
Press [F2] key x2 to check a file.
Select a file with [F3] key and press [F5] key x2. The tool path of the data to be processed is displayed on the monitor.
Brush the platform with a file to scrape unevenness. Fix a material with screw.
Set an origin briefly with a controller. Start machining without endmill and confirm that there is no screw on the tool pass.
Attach a collet.
Attach an Endmill with two spanners. Set an origin acurately and press a start button.
I made tool rack that used 3D printed parts for a joint. It conists of two bodies: a base and a board. The board can be fitted with parts made with 3D printer.And 3D printed joint parts were used for part of the base. At first I modelled the 3D data with Fusion 360 and created a Gcode file with Fusion 360 CAM.
I set the cutting conditions following the tutorial above.
I assembled the base.I put a square logs on the both sides of the board with screws.
It was completed by putting the square logs on the base.
I designed the width of 3D printed parts and slot. But the measured size of these were a bit different. So It was very tight. When I attatched to the base, I used a rubber hummer. But I think It became strong joint.Considering to disassemble, it may be difficutl to adjust the size of slot and 3D printer parts.
