It was a bit of an issue but I ended up cutting a few extra pieces out of 11 gauge material and mostly moved them around till they fit right. A little annoying but I fully expect to see that kind of issue when converting any file 😊 so not a big deal. Converting anything into rhinocad that isn’t rhino is always a hassle but that’s what our machines run off of.
@xxxolivierxxx it was the imperial format. I was unable to open the original files for some reason but the imperial files worked well enough though I wish I’d been able to reference the originals. I do have video but I’m having a hard time uploading it places because it’s apparently too big. I’ll upload it when I get a chance to fix my file 😊
One of the techs made me lock out the machine because people can’t seem to stop putting their fingers near the blades… … …
After many hours of machining/sanding/design tweaking (I learned a lot of things making this for class) I finally have my fully functional plastic grinder ready to go and help break down usable material for my thesis. Much thanks to this community I wouldn’t have been able to do it without your help. As a side note: yes that dress is made out of recycled upholstery fabric AND the grinder also shreds fugitive rubber from old molds like a dream (although its a bit fleshy when it comes out…).
All set to cut my pieces on Monday at school, I was able to get a grant for the metal and I picked up a 50:1 gearbox at the scrap yard for super cheap this morning. 😀 Looking at a single phase 2HP 1800rpm 115-230V and wondering if its going to be enough to power the shredder…
Hi, I’m new to this forum so I’m sorry if this question has been asked before or if it should just be understood knowledge, but I’m in the process of trying to build my own machine as part of my metal fab class and I’m wondering how to source the coupler that is holding the hex bar in place that turns the blades as it looks like a bought material. Is it a standard size or specific brand? Thank you, your help is much appreciated!
