Making parts for an AEROSPACE company on my $500 CNC!!!
(that’s what I’d title my video if I were a clickbait Youtuber)
Situation came up at work where we needed a piece for some tooling done ASAP and it takes forever to work through the correct bureaucratic channels and have it done in our tool room, I probably wouldn’t have had it for a couple weeks. So I went home and made it on my MPCNC instead J. Two hours later, a solution was designed, programmed & cut. I wish I were allowed to make more neat stuff, problem solving quick turnaround engineering/machining would be a dream job… Cut dry without air blast, chip clearing was no problem on this part and my air blast was dismantled while I turn it into a misting system
Aluminum plate for a handle used to pick up fixtures that go in something akin to an oven (won’t elaborate further). They get hot enough that the straight 3D printed version I tried was melting, so some metal was needed. Works great! The handle was printed on a Markforged Mark Two & reinforced with carbon fiber, it’s crazy stiff for a plastic part.
A little close for comfort, that was lucky!!
Hooks nicely on the fixture
