Kammo1 Posted February 12, 2010 Report Share Posted February 12, 2010 Hi yep the My CNC forum is a great inspiration and there are some clever guys around there and some nice built DIY machines, I will be making a small one just for basically doing things like inlays etc. I have been custom guitar making for the last 28 years and its come to a time in my life that doing this work by hand is very,very hard and if I work it out per hour and time spent it doesn't work out cost effectively. Therefore a small sized CNC has to be the way to go. I will be using the Mach3 software and Cut 2D as this looks like a superb and very reasonably priced software and best bit about it its based here in the UK in the Midlands not far from me. Have to admit I am still trying to get my head around drawing something in CAD and then scaling it up and then saying to myself how do you put that shape in the required spot ? Maybe the more experienced guys can do a small tutorial on how to draw a shape, dimension it and put it where you want it ? Now that would be cool as I cannot for the life of me see how its done. Anybody ? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
