Any Questions?

Sorry guys, I started writing detailed instructions, but lost it all before clicking save. So here’s a summary.

- Setup sheet has all the tool and material details, and machine settings.
- G-codes provided for those that just want to make it. No mess, no fuss. Just follow in order and follow the setup sheet.
- Step file provided for those who want it.
- Acrylic is best glued down to a piece of sacrificial MDF, so you can go to town on it without clamps getting in the way.
- Youtube link shows some of the first milling operation.
- Also, I lied about the “no mess”. There’s lots! I highly recommend some kind of vacuum boot.

I’m happy to answer any questions if you need more info!

could you post your fusion file? I need to adjust the material thickness for my material. Also, your step file just opens a txt file in the browser and wont download the step. Thanks for any help!

No stress, mate. You can download it here >> http://a360.co/2uZf7Rd I also recommend drilling and tapping a screw through a thick side to secure it in place. The shroud fell off one time, and smashed to bits.

Thank you Sir! Much appreciated! I was wondering how well it stayed on the router. a set screw is a good idea.
