@leo69 used to be a regular here. I remember a good thread where we talked through the firmware and CAM, but I can’t find it.
I wonder what power I’d have to run the laser to engrave gingerbread.
The real question is, would it smell amazing or terrible?
Depends on where Hansel and Gretel are…
I know burning oak makes me think of the bbq thread.
YES! That brings me back. Was that three years ago? Specifically, I was remembering this post:
Also, in that thread was the vicious1 logo. I didn’t make a crown until yesterday, but I do remember carving that logo in some foam.
One thing Discourse has done is make it so much easier to search and find things. It is just so much quicker.
I’ve given this some thought. Next year’s gingerbread house needs to be a CNC’ed pirate ship. You can probably find some pretty good reference drawings for a ship already, and it would let you create some crazy fun details. Pirates are christmas themed, right?
Bet you could find a good model of the Nakatomi building…
hint: Look for “Fox Plaza” as well…
Was thinking a rotating Carousel…but pirates have potential
Need to think outside the box… A rotating carousel of pirate ships.
Rotating Pirate Ship of Carousels?
Check out Thingiverse for a simple rotary axis. This could replace one axis (I use Y on my K40 laser) but would need to reconfigure the axis steps per mm. Easy to do with Grbl, not sure how tough with the MPCNC boards and firmware.
I’m too new to post links, but look for item 3174149.
Easy to do with Marlin M92, IIRC.
The mind boggles…
That’s a good one for a laser. I’ve thought of something like this for my Glowforge, but you can’t easily hack the hardware and software to do something like this.
