If it can be done on a router, then I could give it a go.

Cheers mate, I have a router myself. Didn't even think to try that tool.
Will give it a try and see how I go.

single flute upcut bit for a router on perspex, low spindle speed and fast travel, you want to get flakes coming off else it will hear up too much

for carbon fibre you need high speed low travel setup, dust is conductive so watch your electrics, and you need a hepa filter or you will die

Hey guys, anyone in Melbourne operate a CNC router that can make nice, beveled holes like these in 3-4mm aluminium?



I want to add extra ventilation to the top panel of my Enthoo Evolv ATX, but there's no chance in hell I'm attacking it myself with a Dremel lol.

Some Laser and Water Jet cutters have the ability to add a chamfer to the part. (Ie, they can angle their cutting head)

The place I use in WA could do that on their water jet cutter.

About 520mm deep, 240mm wide and 20mm high, just eyeballing it as I can't find my tapemeasure (yes, I'm that well organized!)

Top flat surface is about 195mm wide.



Maybe 20mm diameter for holes?
