    Default Custom rotary vacuum fixture for cnc router

    Had this emailed to me, and thought the members would like it to add to their machines capability.

    I have a made a number of custom vacuum fixtures from HDPE but have never made one for the rotary axis.

    Excellent idea and a well presented video.

    Hi Erick, yes I am. Found out that Cambam is not an actual drawing program, but you draw on whatever program is your favourite, transfer it across to Cambam, edit if required, then send it to the ???file to convert to GCode.
    Haven't really had any time to play once I found that out. Been getting home about 7.00pm going through emails and my FAV FORUMS, by that time it's midnight.

    Hi Erick, managed to get a "stamp" drawn up, two ovals one inside the other with reversed text in the middle, that took me about 20hours to draw. I've managed to get a free trial download onto my laptop, so I didn't have to sit in the shed and spend time drawing it in the cold.
    Haven't fired the machine up as yet, as I'm making an all in one trolley for it. Hopefully I'll get the wheels on it this afternoon, no drawers to store all the routing tools and cutters, in it YET!!! Hopefully tomorrow, I'll try to get it cut, potted out, if I can remember how you showed me???
    Will try to post a couple of pics of the half finished project tonight.
    Thanks
