A few days ago I started playing with OnShape, an online design program.
It can do a lot of things and I am very impressed by it.
Check it out at https://www.onshape.com/
I designed a mounting bracket for my camera microscope (which needs to mount on my spindle motor)
In 3D it looks like this
And after exporting the contour as a DXF file I milled it on my CNC machine.
I used a 4 mm 2 flute end mill, at 20000 rpm.
The mill had to stick out quite a lot, so I have some shatter markings on the surface, but it worked, milling 20 mm thick aluminium.
The results are here.
Impressive right ?
Until next time,
