LOL sadly its not the smallest part I makeWow, you do play with some tiny parts😂.
😯We thread milled some M48's last year, that was fun. Anything under an m6 I leave for the fitter to hand tap🤣.LOL sadly its not the smallest part I make
just got a 0.2 threadmill and one of these m3x0.2 hand taps from thorlabs -
for making more small parts
cos im building lasers I need things to be straight, so like to start off with a threadmill before finishing with a hand tap.😯We thread milled some M48's last year, that was fun. Anything under an m6 I leave for the fitter to hand tap🤣.
I'll stick with bigger stuff thanks 😂. Some plates we milled down last week:
Before on the left and finished on the right. 1000 x 870 x60 milled down to 20mm thick with a 20mm wide 55mm thick strip at one end! Aparrently that's more cost effective than welding a strip on because welds need testing for ages in this sector.
And part of my next joat'll end up 30% lighter when we're finished with it. Shame it's 100mm longer than the travel on the machine so needs a reset🙄. But yeah, you can keep your tiny parts😂.
Some of the jobs they try to give me are bigger than our machine 🤣. They showed me one in the fab shop that was 2m diameter x 2m long with a big casting welded on the end. The machine table is 1600 x 1200 and anything over 2m the crane won't go high enough to get it on 🤦♂️😂.Those are pretty big parts, possibly bigger than my whole mill.
Tool changing on another level!!!
Just cut extrude if it's not letting you auto fillet.For a while now Ive really wanted to be able to make parts in cad. After following tutorials I made this pedal box base plate as I thought it was a good solid design to practice with. Most of the dimensions are correct bar the fillets which I had to guess, as the sheets on the ap racing website only give some of the dimensions.

Only problem Im having is this fillet, I originally made the fillet before the hole but I was struggling to make the hole! Anyone know how to do it? I selected the edges and the 2 bolt hole edges but it wont have it.
