    Default Angel wings

    This is sort of a CNC or metal shaping or welding thread ...
    or all of the above.
    I am making a pair of Angel Wings for the upcoming Christmas Program. I'm cutting the wings out of foam on the CNC.



    While the router was running this afternoon I made the harness. Sort of an R-3 for wings. lol



    Bead roller pic. is a little too fuzzy to tell what it is. But, if you've seen one HF bead roller you've seen them all.



    Used the press & a scrap piece of strap iron to punch out the harness belt slots.



    This is where the welding comes in......I welded the brackets to the harness. lol

    The aluminum tabs will fit between the foam layers & get screwed to the brackets on the harness with self tapping screws so the wings can be positioned right.

    That is really neat, what kind of CNC is that? Is it a router or some other kind of cutting device?

    Yup, the servos will move anything you attach to them. Possibilities are limitless.

    I have Aspire V2 also. These wings are the first job for the new software. It's a pretty cool program.

    Yeah it is cool. It can do so much it's hard to keep up unless you use it every day. I used the 3d to cut my rotor blades for my ultra lite heli project. Did you have V Carve and then upgrade or just buy Aspire. I got V carve in 2007 and in Jan of 2009 paid the $900 to get Aspire while they had the promo on. Had I waited two more weeks it would have cost $1450. I think new is $2000.

    No, I was using the 2-d program that came with the CNC. Basically just a driver program. I do all my designing in Flexisign & import DXF files to be cut. Aspire is all new to me. It looks like it has all kinds of potential.

    What impressed me is that you can design your own 3d projects in Aspire. . They have a lot cheaper program called Cut 3d but you can't design 3d. If you have to start buying 3d files anywhere from $10 to $50 each.....that can add up real fast.
