I wanted to try something simple for my first project, but with multiple tool paths and endmills. I decided to give the paradise box a try, except I copied all the vectors into on project and did my own toolpaths for the practice. I had some issues to overcome: the pully on the Z servo came loose, it appears there was only one set screw in it. Fortunately I had ordered the maintenance kit so had a few spares. My second issue was the laminated board I wanted to use had a slight warp and pulled away from the masking tape/CA glue. I adjusted the layout and put screw through the board in a safe location. My third issue was a result of my suckit dust boot. The 2.5" hose was against the router mount and caused some slippage. I’ve since modified it with a smaller hose and resolved that issue.
All in all, it was a great first project with lots of lessons.
