What type/brand of machine and software do you have?
Is there a tool changer?
What is the controller software?
Can it do 3D or only 2 1/2D ?
The projects depend on the available tools.
I use a Sherline 5400 CNC all day long commercially.
This obviously is powerful, but it certainly is capable within its
we have mastercam 10 to create programs.
the machine is a redcam it's basically a small router mounted that
runs by cnc
I can put large sized projects on the bed, I think it was really
designed more for wood.
We can really only cut plastic, wood or with .0200 cuts aluminum. I
mounted a vice and take small cuts but it works ok.
