3d router: when a cnc machine is overkill.

by:QY Precision      2019-09-06
The idea comes after dealing with the difficulty and time loss of preparing certain CNC jobs.
Sometimes I spend more time preparing for CNC than the work itself.
With this manual router you can drill or grind quickly.
The 43mm clamping ring makes it very versatile and you can quickly replace the milling tool for drilling.
There must be a lot of wooden router tables and CNC router plans in cyberspace.
This project is notable for the feature set and the ingenuity of how to combine them together and design for maximum versatility.
This router table can be used as 3-
Shaft drill press, grinding station, 2D router, you can do simple 3D milling of shape by reference model.
With a range of accessories, you can also cut the circle directly
Cut the square and cut it into a 2D reference model.
There are many uses for this tool.
I am a guitar manufacturer and my plan includes designing several templates for guitar body and neck, made with 3D router without having to turn on my CNC.
In addition to this, it can also be used for other wood products.
I am trying to make an easy to build design with a fairly simple and cheap design.
Check out the Youtube video.
What do you need: You can also look at my website! www. paoson.
ComEpilog Challenge: This tool is very useful for Luthier\'s work and can carve Truss pole covers, pickpockets, picks and other guitar parts and even carve my logo.
Youtube video oi designed this project in Autocad, which is a 3D model for which I made several architectural layouts.
There are plans on my website.
The part of the layout can be life-size printed;
You can paste them on the plywood and cut them, or use the floor plan as a reference, as I usually do, and then measure.
Start this project using my homemade router and saw table.
The manufacture of this tool requires high precision and rich experience in carpentry.
The cut should be very straight and square.
To avoid bumps on the bearings, they must be parallel shafts and aligned well, otherwise the tool will start to vibrate.
Cut, Polish and prepare all parts as planned.
Then, start assembling the metal profiles of the shaft (L-shaped).
They must be made of iron or steel.
I have used aluminum, but since it is softer than the bearing, it is possible to make the groove on the metal profile, which may cause the width after long-term use.
You can stick it together with glue or screws to prevent the screws from touching the bearing.
Use a rule to keep them as paralegal and straight. the X-
The shaft work table is assembled, starting with the bearing of this shaft, as you can see in the second minute.
45, we must enlarge the hole 8mm in the direction and area marked on the plan to adjust the bearing to the metal profile to prevent the width.
Use pins to reinforce some parts that require greater strength.
Before starting from the z-axis, the y-axis frame is assembled, needless to say that the frame should be completely square in order to slide perfectly along the arms of the x-axis.
We have done most of the work so far!
Go along the y axis frame and test Z-
Before installing this part on the machine, please install the shaft bearing first.
Cutting Test Z axis spring.
Assemble all parts with Z axis.
43mm the clamping ring should be very precise and done with the right drill bit or CNC.
Make sure the milling machine is fixed as it may fall off with vibration.
Z-axis and other accessories with drive rod, such as elevator control, quick clamp sleeve and shaft brake, whish is also made of 18mm plywood.
We also have to finish the guide rail and work table.
End of 3D router project.
Complete the z axis and 2 and 3D followers.
The parts that fix these followers must be very strong and secure.
Use glue and screws.
Starting with this project, I installed a block on the Z axis in order to grind from the back without having to pull the lever, which is very useful for some work of the 2D follower.
I made the template in CNC for 2D contour y on top of guitar 3D.
If you do not have CNC, I suggest you order from someone who owns it.
They can also be made by hand, however, if the production is accurate, you can always copy the job with some good templates!
In this case, we can also use the real guitar as a template.
To maintain and locate the parts to be machined, I made two bases of 700x350x10mm on the medium fiber board.
The bearing of the 2D follower must have the same diameter as the router drill bit, or if you are looking for a larger milling cutter than the template itself, install a smaller bearing.
The depth of each channel on the Z axis depends on the material and the working tool.
As you can see in the 2\'50 minute video, 2D followers can be used from the front or back.
Personally, I prefer to start from the back as I am more at ease with the template.
I lowered all the elements of the y-axis to make the milling tool close to the workpiece to be processed.
Then, in order to use the 3D follower, I adjust the height of the touch probe.
Since I\'m going to lower the lid a few times on Z, I first keep the milling cutter at a slightly higher level than the touch probe.
At the last level, these heights must be the same.
Like the 2D follower, I prefer milling from the back as I am more at ease with the template and less dangerous.
