Have you tried going with carbon fiber instead of wood?

(Munsell Randall) #3

This is awesome and one of the things I wanted to make with my cnc, problem is I never got around to designing it. Thank you for your effort!

Yes have tried with carbon fiber but didnt film it as I had to have a vacuum on for the whole thing because of the dust!

No problem, The original plans are from UntestedPrototype (http://untestedprototype.com/) and i modified it slightly.

I shall be CNC ing some more of his plans that I will modify and doing my own copter designs as well.

As well as some other projects :slight_smile:

@Nick_Charlton Good job! Can you show the carbon when it finished. I am interested for that, what milling speed or feeding rate is needed?

(Nick Charlton) #6

Probably not going to be doing much carbon fibre milling at the moment: a. Its very expensive haha! And b. I need to figure out a dust filter/extraction thingy for my machine as carbon fiber dust is pretty nasty… I think! In terms of machining carbon, it cuts really nicely and you can take deep passes (up to 1.5 mm depending on your cutter and spindle? Bit i will probably stick to 1mm depth and maybe start at 600mm/min and experiment from there

looks awesome I am about to get a shapeoko 3 in the mail and cant weight to start cutting carbon mini quads with it
