Rocket CNC cut from 2mm craft foam After a very long delay I have finally posted the SVG drawings and the resulting G-Code files for the Retro Rocket and its pedestal that were described in the first Laser Cutting DIY post. The files are compressed into a zip archive that can be downloaded from the CNC Files page. Below is some additional information about the files The delay was pretty much caused by a small error in the G-Code file which I meant to correct before posting the files but could never find time. The error causes the router to leave four tiny squares uncut from one of the rings. Basically, you’ll have to use an X-Acto knife to cut them off (or leave them – they look like small antennae Please note that the G-Code is prepared for a 3-axis router but the z-axis movement was only used for marking the spots where the laser should be turned off (the only way I could do it in DXF2GCODE ).

DumpsterCNC - anti-backlash solutions for home and industrial linear motion. CNC Plans~ Home Page. These plans do not include directions for the software and electronics because the suppliers cover this information for their own products. These plans do give directions for deriving the Step per Inch values that are needed to configure the software for these machines. The machines were all designed to use NEMA 23 stepper and drive components such as those from Geckodrive, Xylotex and HobbyCNC. Mach3 and TurboCNC are popular controller software options. Other software and motor suppliers can be used.
