#CNCSign Project Post: 3

By: Milo Hartmann

Today we measured our CNC machine. We carefully marked it out on a large piece of plywood and cut it out with an electric hand saw. It was difficult to cut in a straight line because we didn’t have enough space to cut it out without someone holding it from falling down. Instead, we put it on a tiny cart to cut outside, because the machine room was too small to accomadate the big piece of wood. We also cut it outside, so that we wouldn’t be breathing as much sawdust. With relative ease, the saw cut through the wood very quickly. In the end it fit well on the CNC machine. We did not sand it down or anything, because this is a safety layer and it will not matter. This layer will prevent the CNC machine from cutting into itself.
