I made the design with FreeCAD @ WAAG, Amsterdam.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Have a Look at the Model
THE CABINET is an exported .stl file, take a look if you like my Cabinet. If you like it it's all up for grabs.
Step 2: I Made This Drawing in Inkscape (opensource)
These are the parts for the model portrayed in the header image.
Most post processors take .dxf for 2d fabrication.
I've made this .dxf in a way that is environmentally responsible. And that was one of the goals with this design. Make it compact and easily reproducible.
Step 3: This Is the Order I Milled the Parts In
BEWARE OF PARTS COMING LOOSE DURING THE MILLING PROCESS.
The lines are 5mm separated so it you don't place the tab's correctly you can damage parts. This separation width is made so a double pass is evaded.
Step 4: Milling
At FabLab Waag one can make use of the ShopBot milling machine available there.
-18mm OBS board
-5mm flat end mill. (double slit upspiral)
-60mm/s - 100mm/s (small parts - big parts straight w/ axis)
Step 5: Building
Add layers, you can design your own setup.
I recommend if you want to build taller than 1000mm you use 6 to 10 clamps per layer.
Reminder: incorporate the changes made in the design in your .SVG and/or .DFX file.
Step 6: Finishing
Don't Forget Those Furniture Gliders, these will keep the legs from damaging the floor and vice versa.
And sand all the sharp corners.
Step 7: 1OSB by JaWell
I've added a filament holder.
I've added the info about that in another instructable.
