Doing a little holiday making at the moment and whipped up these CNC’d toy trucks. Very similar in style and technique to some cars I did a while back.
The weird thing, I was basically doing exactly what Hermey the dentist elf was doing in Rudolph.
This may not be Kosher with the Lego purists out there, but I milled up a Lego brick with studs on both surfaces. Basically, it has two male ends instead of the traditional one male, one female.
Side note, I used old floorboards as the stock material (maple I think). This may be the perfect material for small desktop CNCs. Flat, milled hard wood that is essentially free. Just watch out for nails.
Milled a quick wooden Lego experiment. I can’t believe it fit the first try. Heavily influenced by Notcot.
More to come.
CNCd some walnut enclosures for Weezie. She did a great job with the control panels and circuitry.
Working on a walnut and aluminum enclosure for the fantastic Weezie. So far, glued up some walnut and did some initial CNC work. More to come.
My latest Milling Time article is up on Tested. I reviewed the Roland MDX-540 4 axis we have at ITP.
