Back when I was in the Tech Center (CCCTC) I took Drafting I & II and most of our work was done on AutoCad 2000i and I messed around with AutoDesk Inventor 5, drawing wheels and miscellaneous stuff, its pretty cool.TacomaNova said:I am not sure what kind of CNC machine it is, as for the brand. I know it is a Plasma Cutter. This is the First thing i have ever done, i am taking a welding class at College and they said that if we drew something then he would cut it out on the Plasma cutter. So i have Autodesk Inventor and i designed a grill, but he couldn't figure out how to cut it. The program was C-Cut, after messing with it for a few hrs i figured out how to cut it. and came out with this.
The only complaints i have, The long sections warped a little due to the heat buildup, so i am going to try and switch the program around to cut out one side then the oppisite side, hoping to cut down the heat buildup.
i am completely new to this stuff, i just built a program and started to mess with it and see what i came out with, i am going to try and make it out of stainless but i am not sure how thick. possibly 1/4?
got some sort of picture?toyotaman21 said:i know nothing about this stuff, but i think it'd be cool if someone made a emblem for the grill that was designed like the old ones used to be on the 80 models and what not, i think those are pretty sweet
Are you talking about the ones that just say TOYOTA, thats the only older style ones I know oftoyotaman21 said:i know nothing about this stuff, but i think it'd be cool if someone made a emblem for the grill that was designed like the old ones used to be on the 80 models and what not, i think those are pretty sweet
Yea b/c I can send CAD files to MasterCam and then send it to the Mill, For right now the CNC is tied up in a lot of jobs, but im sure i can make time for it.TacomaNova said:if i design something, i can send it to you in CAD or DXF file, then you could prolly cut it out?
i tried to make it with horns on it but i couldn't get it to look right, i can send it to you in a CAD file if you would like, its the one i cut in the picture. just tell me where you want me to send it.StemsCornfedTaco said:Yea b/c I can send CAD files to MasterCam and then send it to the Mill, For right now the CNC is tied up in a lot of jobs, but im sure i can make time for it.
