This is a continuation of a lead-screw machine project. I am upgrading the the plywood plates with redesigned ones made from acetal.
C-Beam Lead Screw CNC Mountain
Redesign Process - Using Fusion 360
Part 19 - Cutting Z Axis Top Motor Plate From Acetal 12mm
Part 20 - Old CNC Machine Cutting New One From Acetal
Part 21 - Upgrading CNC Machine with Acetal Plates
Part 22 - Cutting Aluminium and Tramming CNC Spindle
I have uploaded a DXF file of all the plates, and PDF with cut explanation for 12mm plates.
Part 23 - Tramming Plate Design and Fine Adjustment Mechanism
Part 24 - Hard Y Stop / Squaring CNC Machine / Fast Cutting Aluminium
Part 26 - 3D Printed CNC Machine / Large Prototype and Assembly
Part 27 - 3D Printed CNC Machine / Setup, Overview and Conclusion
Part 28 - 3D Printed CNC Machine / Compact CNC Dust Shoe
Halloumi CNC Machine - Acetal Plates
I built the original machine using plywood plates, and always intended to upgrade those parts to more durable ones. I decided to go with acetal as it's a lot easier to cut than aluminium. I used fusion 360 to model and rebuild the original machine. Once I have assembled everything and feel confident it all works I will release the plate designs here.
