DO IT YOURSELF! SAW GUIDE: Aluminium V-SLOT frame

DO IT YOURSELF! SAW GUIDE: Aluminium V-SLOT frame

Once again, we are trilling to present you a project which was created entirely of OpenBuilds V-SLOT system components and V-SLOT Poland elements. Many people asked us to prepare the saw guide project that will facilitate the cutting of wood and other materials.

In this article, we will describe how a circular saw guide is built.

HOW TO BUILD A CIRCULAR SAW GUIDE?

To build saw guide, you will need few components that can be found in the V-SLOT.PL store. The complete list of components is written below. In addition to the components that you will find on the list below, you will need an Allen key and an 8 flat wrench. The making time is about an hour and even a beginner DIYer should not have problems with doing this on his own.

To complete the full set of needed components easier we have prepared a special "KIT", which includes all the necessary accessories to build this construction. The only thing that you should choose to suit your needs are aluminium profiles, which you can buy in various lengths from 15cm to 300cm!

FOR WHAT THAT CONSTRUCTION CAN BE USED FOR:


The structure is a simple system of V-SLOT profiles and accessories which together creates a stable and rigid linear guide. On the trolley that moves along the profiles, you can mount an aluminium plate to which you can attach various tools - for example, a circular saw.

However, you need to remember, when installing cutting, rotating, drilling and other devices must have been ensuring a stable mounting of the tool and have to take all precautions during work.

HOW TO BUILD A CNC MACHINE (for a hobbyist) - hints and practical advices

In the beginning, CNC milling machine is a tool that offers many various possibilities of milling. With CNC machine, we can work with various materials such as foam, polystyrene, plastics, wood, aluminium or even steel. Polish group of DIY enthusiasts is still growing (which truly makes us very happy) and as a result, we decided to create a series of guides, where we will describe the process of building a simple 3-axis CNC milling machine. Machine, which will be ideal start to your adventure with CNC.

How to Build a homemade CNC milling machine based on the V-SLOT OpenBuilds system.

In our guides, we will focus on building a CNC machine that uses OpenBuilds V-SLOT system components - We will use the C-BEAM milling project. Our construction will consist of V-SLOT 2060 and C-BEAM aluminium profiles, plates, and V-SLOT rollers compatible with V-profiles.

Changes in Fusion 360: Problem with generating paths for CNC

At the beginning of October 2020, in Fusion 360 software have been introduced a few changes. The program, which is used by many people to model and generate files for 3D printers, CNC milling machines and plotters, has been offering fewer functions for several days.
The changes mainly affect users of the free versions - and as we know this is a large group.

We will not write in this article about all the changes which have occurred in the Fusion 360 program, because several valuable articles or videos have already been created.
In this short article, we will focus on the topic of generating files for CNC devices - because there have been introduced minor changes.

Users who have been used the free version of Fusion 360 so far were able to tear their hair out earlier this month.

"My milling machine is not working!”, "The G-CODE generated by Fusion 360 is buggy!" "How do I fix fusion 360 to generate files for the CNC milling machine?"

These are just a few slogans that could be heard from users of CNC machines. Autodesk made a slight change that made it a bit of a chore to work with the CNC machines for which Fusion 360 generated files.

How to build a table from V-SLOT aluminium profiles?

Structural aluminium profiles available in the V-SLOT store, have many applications. Profiles enable the building the construction of boxes, machines, workstations, and many others. This time we will show you, how to build a simple table using structural aluminium profiles.

The table built on the basis of a 40x40 mm aluminium profile is a stable structure that will successfully replace the table for light and medium loads. The table can be equipped with supporting legs or wheels.

In this case, self-tapping screws were used to twist the individual elements. An alternative method may be the use of corners and connecting plates, but worth to know, that described method allows to minimize the construction cost while maintaining high stiffness.

Protective helmet for doctors with 3D printers and ...... CNC milling machines?

The 3D printing community has been helping a lot since the outbreak of the coronavirus epidemy. Especially, since the protective visor model that almost any printer user can print have appear.

Many people, institutions and enterprises have recently managed to produce and deliver products necessary for the construction of printers and many other machines. Unfortunately, we do not have ready-made 3D printers in our workshops and for some time we have been wondering if the owners of CNC milling machines could also help in the production of protective face visors.

How to add a CNC Post Processor to Fusion 360 software

CNC Post Processor for Fusion 360

CNC milling ... it all starts with an idea and then we move on to the design process. As you know, we recommend you create 2D and 3D models and then create paths for the milling machine in Fusion 360 software. Once we have the model ready, we create the appropriate milling process and save the file ... However, it often happens that you have a problem with appropriate saving the file, which will be suitable and useful for work on the CNC machines which you own. A new keyword appears: Post Processor - how to save the file in the right way, how to upload a file with settings to Fusion 360 software? In this article, we will briefly show you how to download and load post processor prepared for BlackBox, CNC xPRO or DUET controllers to the Fusion 360 software.

In this article, however, we will not explain the issue of POST PROCESSOR in detail. We will only guide you through the entire process of downloading a file and adding it to the appropriate Fusion 360 folder.
