An Ubuntu Linux Logo Made out of a PCB

Postby jscook55 » Sun Nov 18, 2012 2:31 pm

This is pretty simple, but I recently made an Ubuntu Logo using a PCB as the material. Turned out pretty well I think!

I've included more pics, and the GCODE and DXF that you'll need to make your own if you like here: http://www.jcopro.net/2012/11/18/an-ubuntu-logo-from-a-pcb-on-a-cnc-router/. I used a 1/8 inch router bit to cut it.

For a corresponding tale mild of failure, I originally tried to use a 1.8 mm PCB bit to cut this at 60 IPM. Apparently that was too fast and/or my table wasn't quite level and ended up snapping it. So moral of the story is, be careful with tiny bits :) !

Very cool. For some reason I thought it was a good idea to use my brand new 1mm end mill in my drill press...I don't think I need to finish that story. Lol
