Week 10(?) – 4-Axis Milling

So many steps !!!!

I didn’t really know what I wanted to make for this skill builder, I thought about doing a tealight candle holder, just some kind of simple shape.

Ended up drawing this curvy thing that I’ll probably end up drilling a hole into the side / top to fit some kind of candle.

There are quite a few steps to set up this cut.

The above picture isn’t actually the finalized piece, I ended up making it a bit bigger, and adding larger tabs to try and reduce the time. I actually disregarded the tabs as I chose to not have margins, again to reduce the time. I got it down to approximately 0.6 hours.

Set the X and the Z axis — NOT THE Y AXIS.

Then I started the cut.
