In this episode, we will be discussing the realities of cutting a thick (at least thick for the 3040 CNC see more here: bit.ly/2iPTzgu ) piece of 10mm aluminum. It seems the third time was the charm and my first success with using the CAM module of Fusion 360!
Couple CAM/Cut Notes:
1. I used YTF 6mm shank / 3mm x 10mm 2 flute cutter HSS endmill for all of these options
2. I found the Boring strategy to be better to create a recess then the pocketing
3. For boring I used 0.5mm cut depth at 250mm/min
4. For the 2D Contour (cut out) I used 0.25mm cut depth at 250mm/min with step of 6mm/sec (too slow)
5. I used amzn.to/2I5zALU cut with some water as lubricant / coolant.

One of the handiest tools as a maker I have is the CO2 laser as they are VERY affordable, check these out for yourself: bit.ly/2kJuG8I

In this episode, we will be failing and failing fast as the saying goes! So I am trying to CNC some coin art and not having the best luck with it was I broke 5 bits in the process and did not achieve the goal! However each step was a learning process in how to better my work flow!
In this episode, we will be engraving a Hong Kong 5 dollar coin with and evil eye graphic using a 60 degree v-bit (see more here: amzn.to/2X7f29Q) on the 3040 CNC (see more here: diy3dtech.com/purchase-3040-cnc-router/) and well the results weren’t what we were hoping for but every project is a learning experience! Belive I need to split both the feed and depth cut.
In this episode, we will be revisiting the NYC Style Chuck concept (see more here: youtu.be/wB7eX_EXifQ) with a fixture printed in PETG (see more here: amzn.to/2VRKxo1) on the 3D Printer! This has been working out surprisingly well for us, as…
In this episode, we will be breaking a diamond bit! Yes this is one of those video’s where Hollywood forgot to step in and you see the real deal as well as a grown man cry. Yet I promise all of my viewers you get to see real life on this channel as that is part of the fun!
In this episode, we will be trying an Infrared filter for a camera to make custom sized version for one of my drones. How hard (pun intended) could this be? Well very as I was shocked at how hard this glass really was and believe you learn as much from a failure as you do a success so what to share this with you guys as I am not going to give up, but did learn some thing!

In this episode, we will be taking a second shot at a little more evil eye stone art with a steeper diamond bur bit (see more here: diy3dtech.com/diamond-cutting-bits/ ) as I was watching a little more Bobby Duke Art so trying a different bit to see what the results would be.as I am having a good time messing with it!
