CNC Milling – Update – 3D Printing and ordering

Today, I 3d printed a bunch of parts that I will later machine out of aluminium.  I also placed the order for t-nuts and will probably order the extrusions tonight or tomorrow.  I’m having a bit of an issue with the rails supplier (china) due to holidays there.  Worst case, I’ll find another supplier!

I set my 3D printer to the fastest print / lowest quality (0.35mm / layer, 120mm/s)  as these parts will be discarded anyway.  I also had a ‘spaghetti’ incident where one of the supporting rods for the head disconnected (magnetic) and the head simply sprouted plastic in the air.
