Taig CNC Mill Training


#203

@xquared and @Rebel_without_Clause and anyone else who wants to make something for the injection molder - here is a model of the face/holes of the mounting plate. Line up your mounting holes and injection point with the ones in this model. Feel free to reach out to me if you have questions :slight_smile:

I am here now doing gib adjustment.


#205

Sorry can’t come tonight, hope to catch up with you next time!


CNC Training Soon?
#206

Hi everyone, is there anyone available to train me on using the CNC machine. I would like to use it but heard that it requires training.

Thanks,
Mounir


#207

Added you to the list. What do you want to make?


#208

Hi @Gear105,

Thank you for adding me. I see the waitlist has 18 people in it, and training happens only once a week with 2 people max. Does this mean I won’t be able to use the CNC until 2.5 months from now? Thanks.


#209

Sorry I can’t make any guarantees. What do you want to make?


#210

We are making a machine


#211

What kind of machine are you making?


#212

Hi, I’d like to sign up for CNC mill training. Thanks!


#213

Hi, I would also like to sign up for access to the CNC mill. Have a few aluminum parts I want to machine.


#214

2 interested here! Myself and Katie McDonald.


#215

Now that things have gotten slightly less crazy at work, I’d like to get in on the next training too. I bought a copy of the CAD files for this drag knife a few years ago and it’d be nice to actually finish something for a change. :wink:

@john42
@RolandClarke
@paulreimer

I added you to the list. Do you have any prospective projects?

@Arrgh

Can you send the project so I can take a look at what it will take to make?


#217

Thanks Brian. No projects at this specific time. Still keen for the training if the opportunity arises however.

Thanks,

John


#218

I’ve got a really simple project. Two machined aluminum parts with M3 through holes. Should not be hard. I’m making a prototype on the laser cutter with acrylic but most likely need aluminum for strength.
I’ve used milling machines before years ago when I was a grad student, so I am basically familiar. Never programmed a CNC mill, however.


#219

Are you using Fusion 360 to design your part? Is it ok to share the design?


#220

I can share it. Just converted it to 360 format from dxf. How should I send it to you?


What is VHS? Community garage or career hobby?
#221

I can’t share mine publicly, I’ll PM you a 360 link.


#222

I’m interested in training on the CNC mill also.
