Greetings Mario and welcome to the router forum good to have you with us.
We were all there once, 50 and new to the forum.I'm 50 and new to this forum.
There is a part of this forum dedicated to CNC work. At the splash page, look further down and you'll find it.I searched alot on the web to homebuild a cnc/panthograps.
I've tried to build one, using an electronic kit & some luck in putting together mechanical pieces, and after alot of harnessing I get disouraged!
You have a bunch of things going on here. First, you're trying to re-invent the wheel. Go to the CNC Forum and start reading.And most of all, whats locks me out is the "computer" step:
I think If I have to use a tool like this, it should be easy to use.
Right as the screwdriver and the hand saw.
Got a beard waiting for the results and lost my hair when I saw the results!If I need to make a rectangular hole in a piece of plastics, and have to harness with a CAD program first, then a CNC translator, then maybe run a simulator, and only when you're right on the piece (most cases you don't have a second chance!), you'll discover that I forget inch-mm conversion, all this drives me mad!
Search for pantographs and duplicators in this forum. Personally, I prefer the duplicator -- the pantograph is too flimsy and sloppy.Now, I'm trying to build by myself a benchtop carver/router, HAND DRIVEN wich should be easy to build for a person like me, who don't have too much experience/resources in mechanics.
Careful. You're into stuff that may be too small for a router. What you might prefer is a pantograph for a dremel, depending on how small and how much detail. again, search this forum -- there's lots of info here.I would like to build something that could carve little parts (for static models) in plastyc/styrene/mild wood, but with some precision.
