Taig CNC Mill Training


#223

@AWiecke

Added you to the list. Do you have any prospective projects?


#224

Yeah,
right now I’m working on a custom motorcycle gas tank and need to make a flange/bung to mount this style of gas cap

I would most likely go for a 6000-series aluminum. The installed part would look like this:

Close-up:

The part is a bit thin for the lathe, and I think it’s a good simple start for the mill since it only requires 1 setup and is really only 2.5D milling plus some driiling


#225

Hello, When will the next training be?!


#226

I will add you to the list. Do you have any experience with Fusion 360 or any projects you have in mind for the machine?


#228

Hello, yes I have used Fusion 360 to make GCODE before. I have even used this exact machine before, so the training should be more of a refresher! The project I have in mind will require cutting poly-carbonate sheets. I am hoping to mill out some components for a bioreactor for my research project. Thanks!


#229

Right on, can you generate some tool paths in fusion and share the project?


#230

Absolutely, would you like me to share the project on slack? I can also provide you with my SOP for the Taig.

People who still want to get trained.

There is going to be a Fusion 360 night Thursday February 7th. You can learn more about how to use CAM side of fusion and get ready to machine things.
