I had to move things around, as has always been the case. This results in the back panel looking like this:
I've located every hole that I need to make, and will use a combination of my Sherline CNC and old skool layout with squares, rulers, and pointy scribes. This is the bottom. The front is very easy.
The odd part to this story is that I haven't actually drilled any holes yet. I've had a few distractions. Nothing bad, but one of my intents when I retired was to fish more. Between my rude introduction to gout in April and my emergency surgery in June, it was a very inactive year and we haven't had the boat out at all since I retired! We fixed that Monday by taking a few hours to go chasing the elusive fish, and then a few hours to clean up. You'll note that I said "chasing", not "catching". I've also had to adult a bit.
The next few days look good, though.
It looks like the time spent on modeling equates to a much lower scrap metal rate.ReplyDelete
Looking forward to the post on fresh caught fish recipes.
Looking good. I don't know what CAD package you are using, but have you looked into Fusion 360?ReplyDelete
I haven't looked into that. I'm using Rhino, and have been for about 10 years, from version 3 to 5. They're working on ver. 6, which I'm free to play with. It would take a pretty good combination of features and price to pry me away from them, I guess.Delete
Fusion 360 is free for hobbyists and startups and companies making less than $100,000 per year. And it is both CAD and CAM.Delete
NYCCNC on YouTube has a bunch of videos showing the capabilities of Fusion 360. AutoDesk (of AutoCAD fame) apparently is going full bore after Solidworks.
