In our workshop, we create many different things on OpenBuilds milling machines.
- Machine Type:
- OpenBuilds LEAD Machine
- Fusion 360, Ikscape
- OpenBuilds BlackBox
- Machine Time:
- ca. 20 min
- Bit or Laser Size:
- DeWalt D26200, BIT 3mm
- Feeds & Speeds:
- 2400 mm/min
Some of them are tests for customers and others are ideas that often arise late at night.
This time we decided to design a stand for the latop, which can be set in a vertical and horizontal position.
The materials we used to make the stand:
☑ 10mm MDF board (here we recommend a stiffer material like a piece of wood or a thicker plastic board. We will use MDF here because it is a good material for milling especially for a novice user ... in one word he forgives a lot)
☑ 2 x V-SLOT 2020 aluminum profile, 37 cm long
☑ 4 x Low profile screew M5 x 20mm
Device and accessories for making the stand:
☑ LEAD CNC 1010 or Milling machine with working area of min. 300 x 300 mm - w
☑ 3mm BIT
☑ M5 Lowproile
Of course, every laptop is different (it has other dimensions) so based on our project, it's worth checking if your equipment will fit and possibly change the design to suit it to suit your needs.
Main milling settings:
- 3mm BIT
- DeWalt D26200 spindle set at low speed (1) ~ 16,000 rpm
- Speed: 2400 mm / min (you can easily set this speed at high speed factor)
- DOC: 2.5-3mm
- Point 0 for the X / Y / Z axis is the bottom left edge of our material
