I combined my 3D printer and CNC mill and turned my 6040 CNC into a cutter. I designed and printed a Roland vinyl/sticker cutter blade holder. Search ebay for “roland blade holder” if the previous link is invalid. I published the .stl file for it, feel free to scroll down. To use this you need a 65mm spindle motor. The part where the adapter is attached is 49mm in dia.
First test to a paper:
And yes; first cut is the deepest! (and CNC guy takes it one step at at time..) After few adjustments and retries I got a decent stencil for some fabric prints (the logo is our FPV team’s logo).
I used just a sponge to tap the paint into the fabric (these are tube hats/scarfs/whatever). Not the best quality yet, but close enough! (next step, buy a silkscreen mesh)
This is my version of a carbon 250 quad. It’s based on Hammer v 3.0 plans (big thanks!) but I have made some modifications that suit my taste.
The carbon pieces are self milled on 1.1mm carbide tool. 16.200rpm, 0.5mm layer, 210mm/min.
Each arm weights 10.1gr. Thickness 2.91mm. Modified from Hammer arms; removed that suddenly narrowing shape (weak point) and made it “evenly breakable”. They are still 100% compatible with the original Hammer design.
The two identical base body plates weighted 23,8gr each. They are 2mm thick carbon fiber.
