Now it's time to use the CNC for the first time.
I will show you the first setup in detail and take you with me when I fire up the machine.

Hey Michael,

I am so glad to see you covering the CNC and your way of explaining everything is the best ever. My plan is too turn mine on again and start learning more about it. With learning 3D printing for so long I haven't given much thought about my CNC, but you've inspired me...

Please keep the videos coming!

The new video is online. I made my first Boeing knobs by making a silicone mold and casted them with resin.

Hello Michael,

Thank you for another high quality and informative video.

What engraving depth did you use for the warning annunciator? You mentioned that this was deeper and better than the fire annunciator.

Also what material did you use to fill in the engraving? You mentioned that it is a type of wax if I heard correctly? Does it harden or did you cover it?

Thanks in advance

Regards

Paul

Hello Paul,

the engraving depth was set to 0.17mm. This seems to be enough for the master caution button. When I engraved the fire buttons I used this metal foil to determin the allignment of the surface. And maybe I forgot to add the thickness of the foil when I set the zero point of Z-axis. So if you do it right 0.17 - 0.2mm should be enough.

Yes, I used a wax to fill the engraving. You can find it here https://cnc-plus.de/de/Werksstoffe---Zubehoer/Farbstifte-zum-ausfuellen-einer-Gravur-mit-Farbe--Gravur-Farbfuellung-.html?XTCsid=c193987dee048ca39c170abc5fb0fca2 but I think you will find something similar in your country. There is also a filling varnish. Maybe this is more resistend against rubbing out. The wax hardens too. But I don't trust it enough, so I will cover it with a clear varnish.

Thats exactly how they do the real ones.
