    1. cristikc


      Hi Hennie, i was busy with my job, with house problems, and with my 3 grandchildren, so i worked just a few, and had no time to post. Also i made a lot of tests with a new CNC and you can see those posts. Glad to see that you were interested about my Sovereign. Soon i'll be in holiday and hope to have time to work. All the best Cristi

  2. Hi Dan. Glad to see you back again, and hope that your health will be OK from now. Wait for new good logs from you. All the best from Cristi
  3. Hi Pat. A Happy new year to you, and all from MSW. The software it is not hard for me, and you find a lot of examples and lessons on youtube All the best, Cristi
  4. I use a steaming tool as you can see here: http://modelshipworld.com/index.php/topic/494-steem-bending-tool-cristikc/
  5. A large PAUSE with the Christmas hollydays Just some small tests with the carving soft Looks ok, but i learned how the wood has to be, before starting a project I wish to all people from MSW a HAPPY NEW YEAR ! And a lot of good thoughts from me Cristi
  6. Hi Pat. For the laser printing it came with a basic software, very, good. For carving,it came with the "sending commands software - GRBL) and you have to prepare what to carve. Also for carving, you have two software that came with the CNC. One to prepare "leter carving" and one more sophisticated , ArtCam, for better work. You also have on DVD a program for carving on PCB. It is ok for the start, and if you want to do more things, you have to use some other. I work on graphics on computer, and i think that for most of us it is ok with what it is on DVD If you need more info, just write all the best to all Cristi
  7. Hi Gerhard, i bought from Aliexpress and for the dealer (i found a good one) , please give me your mail and i will send in personal message, not to be taken as a promotion for this guy. Cristi
  8. I had a little time to try carving with my new CNC you can see the results. It take some time to see the software adjustments, so i can "link" some draw and carving software detail look while is working final result of carving oposite way of carving The wood is not the best, because i wanted jut to make some tests Hope it is useful for the one that want to work with CNC for making small parts for shipmodels Cristi
  9. Another third hand

    Michael, excellent job. Nice to see that you share the plans. Cristi
  10. Computer routers

    Hi Greg. CNC 2418 can be bought with laser or milling head, or both, as i bought. You can chose between 500mw to 5000 mw laser. It is connected by USB 2 , the sistem is an Arduino inside,it came wit some small software, for carving (GRBL 9) or for Laser print (a smal program, very nice) I will show in my description ( http://modelshipworld.com/index.php/topic/14704-small-cnc-laser-and-router-for-carving-and-engraving-by-cristikc) some new pictures i made today It can "burn" just in the are you made the "focus" the arrengment for printing. You have to use green glases (that came with the CNC) the moment you adjust the focus, else it is ok to look. Hope it is ok for you. Today i found the same i bought, for just 175 USD plus shipping taxes (on Aliexpress) All the best Cristi
  11. The first tests with the laser (hope to have time this days to post some pictures with the carving) from a picture with my granddaughter i started a new test the quality of this picture is not ok, but hope it is ok to you, to see what i can do with laser CNC For carving, i still have to learn a little about GRBL and some additional software. See you soon to all that watched this Cristi
  12. Added the last parts the spindle motor in position prepare cthe laser on table, to see that you can use both replace motor with the laser
