General Mach Discussion / Machine protection
« on: April 05, 2009, 01:03:58 PM »
Hi Guys

I have nearly completed my cnc engraver and need some advice on screw and guide protection.
Since this machine is a moving table design my main concern is to cover the guides and screw of the x axis.
I was thinking of a roller blind arrangement.
Any advice or links will be appreciated.

Spnar ;D

Hi guys

I have been thou all of that plus a female computer with a
mind of it's own.
The J word problem is solved just as RICH described and the circle stuff
has to do with the tool parameter setting in Lazycam.
If you compare the profile you have with the actual DXF file it has
a lot of detail missing. I am assuming the tool profile and or
penetration are not right.

Hi Rich

Found the cause of the problem .
My PC going nuts and making my life more interesting.
Some system file must have gone crazy.
That's fixed and have started cutting some samples
I am posting photo of finished product and relevant files.
The photo shows a slightly modified version of the files attached.

Hi Rich

Am using AUTOCAD LT2000.
Should have some time to do some machining next week i will post results.
I have been checking the code generated for the last profile i posted and it needs some
cleaning up.

Am posting profile in LCam and DXF.
It cleaned and posted code reasonably well.
As always some cleaning up was required .
Will try to machine this profile and see how it goes.
By the way Rich i called this 3 balls plus

Hi Rich

Am struggling with the to-do list as presented by wife.
As stated in previous posts i have postponed this way too long.
I have machined some trials using wizards just to check the accuracy of my setup.
It needs a little more work for good engineering jobs but it's ok for decorative machining
My first project will be a decorative piece which is an ideal project to learn Lazycam
Lots of different shapes and in the process you can refine the machine for more accurate works.
I have a profile which is proving to be a bit of a hard nut to crack and may need your help soon.
If i crack it i will post it anyway.

Hi guys

The only way forward is to use this program and make mistakes.
If you follow this thread there is a mine of information.There is much more if you browse the forum.
At least there is a manual for mach turn and that makes the process of obtaining a part on the lathe less painfull.
After using my home built mill for some time using Kcam i needed to complement it with a small lathe. As RICH said
there is not much out there and all the effort put in to make Layzycam work will pay dividends.
If layzyturn matures then maybe we could move on to that.
Both machines Lathe and Mill are complementary and you will need both to make your projects
a reality. 8)
