Cutting Parts Using CNC Router ???
« on: February 10, 2017, 02:15:00 pm »
I'm not sure if this question has been asked/answered dozens of times over, but has anyone used a CNC Router to carve out their arcade cabinet parts?

If so, what kind of CNC Router machine do you use?  (DIY, Commercial)?

Which design and coding program did you use?


Any pics or videos you can share?



THANK YOU !!!

I also use a PRO4896 from CNCRouterParts router with a 7hp water cooled spindle and a  pile of other upgrades.

There are a few pictures at www.classicarcadecabinets.com

I use a MultiCam 4'x8' with ATC. I use Aspire by Vectric for CAD/CAM and Solidworks to design with.

I just added a 64" latex printer, cutter and laminator to my arsenal. I will post some pics later this weekend.

I just certified on the Shopbot at my makerspace and am drooling at the chance to cut a cab.  I have to buy my own bits though and am not sure what to use.  I was originally thinking of compression bits, but what I am reading is that those are best for single pass cuts.  Upcut obviously tears out the top of ply, downcuts tear out the bottom.  After watching a bunch of videos comparing bit types, it seems I'd be best off going with a straight cut.  As far as material I'd love to use black melamine, but can't find a local source at a non-insane price.
