I want to offer you all something fun in exchange for nothing:
I work for a robotics automation company that specializes in CNC (computer numeric control) systems with an emphasis on 3-4 axis table cutting machinery.
Here's our website:
We are going out of business, though, but I still work there as we go through the shutdown process
In any event(tl:dc): I'm an technician and engineer there and have to test all the machines that leave the building. This means that I have to cut 'something' on the machines they go out. My offer to you is - I will cut something for you! (as long as the cut time is less then 20 minutes and works within what I have a scrap material available on site)
Here's a reddit post to something I made on our 3 axis plasma cutter:
I work for a CNC milling manufacturer. Today I had to test a plasma cutting machine. I made this! (Skyrim in Steel)[fixed]
I can cut pretty much anything that size and I'll ship it to you! Because the company's going out of business and I can't say for sure what I'll be able to cut before we're done I'll go so far as to limit it to the best 2 designs by Friday, June 21st <--
Here's what you need for it:
- Vector art smaller than 15x15 inches (less preferred, just a maximum!)
FORMAT: Illustrator .ai file or Inkscape compatible!
Let me know if you're interested If you're not familiar with graphic work and have a bitmap (regular image [raw/tiff/jpg/bmp) you need converted into a workable vector image, I (or I'm certain someone in this community) can help make it reality.
I can cut wood/plastic/foam/soft material with a router or steel with the plasma cutter. 3D work can be done in wood/foam/etc. but steel with plasma is strictly 2D.
If you can design something 4 or 5 axis in MasterCAM and actually know what that means e-mail me chrisattechnorouters.com and we'll make something spectacular for a prize or something.
