Hey Guys,
I have finally got machine working as I wanted (before I had some problems, which Tweakie was so kind to help me with them)
So, since then I have cut lots of wings (this was the initial idea of the machine), but I had bigger ideas - like cutting letters and different shapes. After some research I decided to buy a product - DevFoam Pro - very good program with nice and intuitive interface and for a good price too. So here are some pics of what I have done for the first time. My garage neighbours loved the capabilities of the program and wanted some signs for their door like " Alchololics here!" and "BAR Cheers", I will post the finished and glued product may be tomorrow Smiley

Excellent work, I am pleased to see that your machine is working OK and that you are cutting things related to BEER  Smiley

OK,
the good news is that I can cut polycarbonate sheeting, ropes and foam for mattresses. Smiley
Really satisfied by the results, some pics are coming Smiley I was pretty busy working on my first and second planes done by the cnc Smiley Hope that will be able to post some good maden flights ... soon Smiley
The first is a delta wing (a bit modified from the original) and the second is a copy or borjet maja uav http://borjet.com/index.php/prod-engl-men/blog-2-columns which in my opinion is one of the best - like the Volvo - stiff but durable Smiley
See Ya soon! Smiley

Cool.
The part of the video of the Maja making it's fully automated landing was extremely impressive - I could use the electronics for that  Wink

Ok,
here is a pic, of the polycarbonate sheeting, rope before and after the cut (small pieces) - perfectly burned and a not that good cut foam letter (I should make a rail or something to move the material when it is being cut, because there is some kind of calamine that stays on the wire and stops the heat).
