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
I meant a CNC router.
Thanks for the advice fellers,
Will finalise the design and give it a stab!
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.
Stepped drill bit and a cordless drill
Would much rather have a machine do it
panel and hole size?
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?
Too big for my router sorry
I've done those sort of holes on my drill press. Not a 100% perfect compared to a machined one but close enough. The important bit is the type and quality of the drill bits you use.
Looking for someone to supply and cut some acrylic sheeting for me - the largest piece would be 525mm x 425mm - probably around 5mm thickness.
I'm not too familiar with laser cutting, but can you achieve a stepped cut around the edge of some acrylic panel for a nice flush side panel window?? Is that more of a rebate type thing?
Nope the laser will cut straight through or engrave/etch only, you would need a CNC router or similar to achieve what you are after there.
Alternatively, you could achieve the lip simply by using a dremel with a router bit clamped to a table and a couple of skate bearings for guides to keep the piece straight
Can anyone assist with a laser cutting request i have?
I purchased a replacement side panel with window from another case, i have removed the acrylic window from it, and wish to get an exact size cutout done the side panel of the case i want to mod, then i can just silicon the case window to the new panel and voila, a very good quality case window mod.
I'm back! Can anyone make me some clear 14 slot cable combs to suit 4mm sleeved cables, pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase?
Not for the finish in the picture above
is there anyone in western sydney who would be keen to come service my laser? its an 80w black and red
or know any companies that do it?
