Vacuum Hold Down for Repetitive Shapes

I was requested for more info on the vacuum jigs we are using for repetitive parts. I'm pretty new at this, so take with a grain of salt. This is shown on another machine, but it's machine agnostic. At my day job, I'm senior photographer and hack fabricator. I develop product holding fixtures for wh...

Re: Mr M's Woodshop

I personally would figure your vacuum setup after you receive it. I looked at your site, and if you are doing a lot of the same shapes over and over again, you probably want to do dedicated vacuum jigs. I use both a full vacuum table as well as vacuum jigs at work. I only use the table vac for sheet...

Heads Up (word of warning) Fusion 360 Users

Hi all, Just documenting my newbie woes in getting Fusion 360 CAM up and running with the Probotix in the hopes it will save someone else the headache. I had been using Meshcam for my 3D CAM until now, but I've outgrown it, and their customer support is next to non-existent. So I downloaded Fusion 3...

Re: Recessed work area for more Z height.

I wanted to report back with the adaptation in use. Here is his first project. This has vastly increased the capability of the machine. And I continue to be impressed with the rock solid reliability of the OS/Control Software. I can't remember the last time the CPU was off, and it's always ready to ...

Re: New to CNC

It came in box completely assembled and ready to go. This is positively huge in this price range. The test machine at work to prove the need for a bigger machine (I'd never used a CNC before, much less seen one in person) was an X-Carve. I will never buy a user-assembled machine again. Ever. We had...

Re: New to CNC

You don't mention the type of work you hope to be doing or will be doing. Do you have a definite goal in mind? Probotix is a well hidden gem for sure. I thought I'd seen it all after over a year of searching and thought I'd have to save for a Camaster or Shopbot desktop. Then on happenstance, I foun...
