If you have access to a simple desktop mill/router, and you are not into mechanical part design, here is a very simple workflow:
You will only need free/open source program:
- HeeksCAD and HeeksCNC
- LinuxCNC (optional)
In order to illustrate this example, we are going to make a case for a nice Nixie Clock from PV Electronics
A simple Ikea-hack will do for the wooden box: DRAGAN 2-piece bathroom dish set, bamboo
The front panel is milled
And fitted in place
The 2 stainless steel feet are from Ikea again
Thanks Dan Heeks for the very good software.
Files are available here.
Could you please send me the DXF you made for this project?
It would save me a lot of time and I would really appreciate it.
Sure, the file attached to the post.
