3040 CNC – Cutting Thick Aluminum Success!


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

3040 CNC – I Failed Five Times!

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!

So I was using the 3040 CNC (see more here: diy3dtech.com/purchase-3040-cnc-router/) to carve a coin and it started out well yet ended with a huge failure!
