I try to pay attantion to details, and have great fun doing it. :-)

RPM= 10.000
Feed: 1,6mm/sec.
"Z" depth pr pass: 0,6mm
Coolant: Alcohol (For the CNC..., I had coffee)
Cutter: 4mm, 2 flutes, carbide, made for aluminum

I might be able to go harder into the metal, but the CNC machine is not made for this, so I am worried about the mechanical deflection, if I push it too much.

I'd like to share my first ever 3D CNC work, and at the same time first aluminum work on the CNC.
I have cut lots of plastic and brass plate 1 and 2mm thick, but now I got to a more serious part of my model building project: A gearbox!

My CNC: (Don't let the German signs fool you, I am in Denmark :-) )

I drew a sketch in Inventor, exported that as a 2010 DXF file. That file went into a program called Cut2D, where I defined my tool paths incl depth, passes, speeds and what-not.
Those tool path files then went into my Mach3 one at the time, and I could start cutting!

The result: Two halves for the gear box housing, where I will put 6 ball bearings and 3 gears in, in a little while.

The CNC machine, Inventor 2013, Cut2D and not least Mach3 has really opened up a world of options, and I can't wait to make more parts!

For those interested: I am building a remote controlled, working 1:14 scale model of a mobile crane (Liebherr LTM1500-8.1)
The entire build is shown at my web: www.robse.dk

Sincerely, Robert

Oh, excellent! -and easy.
I was affraid that I'd loose all my config etc, but I guess I just worry too much. :-)
I'll order asap. Thanks.

General Mach Discussion / How to enter license?

Dear all,
I have tried to contact Mach3 via the "Contact us" feature, but it returns an error, so here we go:

I am about to buy a license for my Mach3, as I have reached the 500 line limit. Before I order, I have one small question though:
I have looked for the option to enter the license code in the Mach3 software, but are unable to find it in any of the menues.
How does it work? Am I supposed to download a new version?  (I'm a but affraid to spend 175,-, and then find out that I'm stuck. :-) )
Thanks, Robert
