    Re: How is it so far?

    Re: Canuck's HD Metal Monster

    Nice work. I need to get back to using mine. Though I will probably never do aluminum, though who knows.

    Re: Canuck's HD Metal Monster

    I was wondering how they would be better than R&P, because such things are slower... but then I remembered you are using massive servo's that can make those things fly.

    Re: Another newbie first build

    I'd rather have something that worked that looked ghetto than something that looks pretty that doesn't.

    Re: Aftershock ... rc glider

    Well, pulled from the bag, you can see it with one layer of peel and paper towels pulled off. The second layer of peel came off ok, without popping the part out of the mold, but gonna get some perf...

    Can not see the video, marked private. But it seems to me 'commerical' is something that is available for everyone to buy. If this is not a machine anyone can go out and buy (ie. commercially...

    Re: Aftershock ... rc glider

    First I had to cut out a template for the horizontal shape, for material. I should actually make another that has holes where the dimples are so I don't have to do that by hand, or can at least...

    Re: rack and pinion interference issue

    Ah yeah, the rails do seem to be further 'in' on one side than the other.

    Can the pinion go further in on the shaft on the left side motor?
  18. Poll: Re: Latest Design CRP PRO4896 Build log Awesomeness!!

    The graphics card requirements are left overs from day's long ago, with much lesser capable machines.

    I have run files with over 200k lines without issue.
  19. Poll: Re: Latest Design CRP PRO4896 Build log Awesomeness!!

    I just put this together... 142 bucks shipped. Small machine, runs great so far. Has a PP port on MB. Using on board video.

    Re: Aftershock ... rc glider

    Popped it open just a bit ago. This is it just opened. Loads of clay to clean up and edges to sand down. Overall not bad for a first go at it.

    Re: Aftershock ... rc glider

    I guess it depends on what the total machining time would be. This piece, about 62" x 7.5" (at the widest) just took a little over 5 hours. Loads of sanding to do.

    Re: Aftershock ... rc glider

    Unfortunately all I have done is shorten the overstep. I am down to 10% on a .25" BN. I still get them and it requires a good bit of sanding (and the paper clogs constantly). But corian cuts...
