I finally put something in the oval frames. I very happy with the results.
I’ve been working on combining a vacuum former and a CNC. The goal is that the machine can mill the buck, form the plastic shell, and then mill the shell — all in one. The hope is that some interesting parts can be created with the machine.
I’m still in early stages and the rig is basically a Frankenstein build of various kits, but I think it’s starting to go somewhere.
My latest tin can toy is based on Galactus. The main feature are the antennas on the side of the helmet. And the parts that connect the antenna fins to the head turned out to be the trickiest pieces. I made a jig for the mill so I could slot the aluminum. Then I turned them to the correct size on the lathe.
I CNC’d some acrylic on the 4 axis into lens like shapes. After a polish on the buffing wheel, they actually worked.
CNC’d another cheese board. This time in walnut.
This walnut part was deceptively difficult to wrap my head around. Perfect part for the 4-axis though.
I CNC’d a simple cheese board out of some mystery scrap, then routed the edges round. I don’t even like cheese all that much.
