This is my first real design in Carbide Create. I am working on learning both it and Fusion 360. I’m not really asking for help in doing something, but I would like for someone to please take a look at my .c2d file and see if it makes sense. If anyone is wondering why I don’t just copy or download one of the existing designs, to that I say that believe learning to use the design software is just as important to me as learning to use the machine. How could I understand why a project went wrong if I don’t understand the underlying design?
I designed the threaded wasteboard in Create because it seemed simple enough to design. I want my stock S03 to cut all of the holes for my threaded inserts and to countersink the bolts that will hold my wasterboard down to the stock base board.
My stock size is .750" x 16 x 16 MDF.
I am using 1/4-20 x .511" (13mm) tall threaded inserts so I designed the holes for the inserts to be .266" in diameter, which is the recommended drill bit size (H) if I were to drill these by hand.
To recess the bolts to hold down the board, I made a countersunk hole that is .450" in depth (.132" bolt head height + .5" washer thickness + some waste factor to recess the bolt head sufficiently below the surface of the board). The OD
of the washer is .688" so I made the diameter of the cut .750" to give some room.
The holes are all centered on a 2" grid. Do I also have the Toolpaths correct?
