Cross slide pattern

Post by Gadget » Sat May 01, 2010 5:03 pm

I cut two cross slide patterns out of foam today for lost foam casting. One for me and one for a friend. I used my CNC router to cut the patterns after drawing them up in Alibre Design and creating the machine code with Vectric Cut3D. I hope to pour tomorrow but it will depend on the weather.
Here is a link to the video of the cut process.

That's pretty slick! I enjoyed the video.

Be sure to show the castings when you get them done.
