Hello all; I have a question relating to the CNC work on my SM1. The top image of the two below shows the channel that will be cut with a 180 degree endmill. Once I solve how to specify this channel correctly in Luban, I will be able to make such a channel between 3 & 5mm deep. I really want to create the channel in the lower image and probably not deeper than 3mm.
What parameters will I need to specify to create a channel with the profile in the lower image? I will also want to know how to tell the CNC carver that each end of the straight channel will need to see a gradual slope from the bottom of the channel to the surface of the material.
The idea is that each channel will serve as a temporary place for tiny parts (while some work is being carried out on a piece of machinery) so each of the channels must permit the small part to be stored in a logical sequence and then removed with finger pressure on the part. The material will be wood. I could try to design and print it with PLA but as yet I have not examined the use of the 3D printing abilities of SM1. I have no experience or skill with Fusion or similar applications.
Any and all help is much appreciated. Thank you.
