CAD Programme for Multifunction slab
« on: June 01, 2015, 01:35 PM »
Hi new user here so i apologise if this has been brought up in the past, i had a search but i couldn't find what i was looking for.

Im looking for the cad file for the mfslab, Iv emailed multifunctionslab.com twice now with no reply, iv managed to find a local joinery shop that can CNC me the slab as long as its in a dxf file. Is this what it would be sent as anyway? im not sure if it may be different between england and usa, canada etc.

Is be surprised if it didn't come in a dxf format.  To be honest,  it's probably a 10 minute job to create it from scratch having seen the pictures.

iv just read on another thread on here that it didnt come in a dxf format, and the user had to convert it. I only just about got my local shop to agree to cnc, so im guessing he will have none of it if i start giving him the wrong formats etc

Whatever format you get it in it can probably be switched to DXF. If you're stuck, send me a PM, but as Sainty says, it's not hard to re-create that.

Also, there's someone on here flogging something very similar in the UK, pre-cut. I think. Don't quote me, I'm on holiday and full of Heineken.

Probably, I can see through time right now, been on it hard since about 3pm.

But whatever "vector" format it comes in, pdf, eps, whatever, someone with a bit of knowledge can shift it to DXF easily enough for nothing.

Draftsight is free.  Its a really good 2d drafting program. 

Just open the file and file, save as, dxf.  Couldn't be easier!   If you get in trouble, let me know!

Are you sure you don't mind? I'd Appreciate that massively! What's the next step then? Where do we go from there, would you like me to supply you the mdf or do you have it stocked?

I have about 120 sheets of 15 and 18mm birch plywood but ran out of MDF I think ill have to have a look.

I will need the Drawings sent to me I don't mind spending my time doing the tooling program for it but don't want to be doing a Cad drawing.

What thickness MDF?   22mm? 

Could to it out of birch lol Stronger

Hi,

I just had a look on the Multi function website and noticed the slap has angled cut outs.

When I opened up the file James Sherlock sent me into my program for some reason those didn't show up.

Good job I made this one as a tester to use for my self.

Next one will have them in don't worry!

Thanks for the 2nd video.  [thumbs up]

Didn't realize that an automatic tool changer can be optioned for a CNC router. Makes complete sense, I've just never seen one in action.

Also like that your'e using ply rather than MDF.

What bit are you using to cut & speed setting on that multiply sheet?
We use Onsrud & Amana bits.
