New to CNC but love the community here at carbide. Hopefully someone can help steer me in the right direction.
I bought the nomad pro 883 6 months ago and just recently found some time to play with it. I’m working on a custom computer project (basically creating my own case and layout) that’s water cooled. Currently the motherboard I have uses a narrow ILM socket which isn’t very prevalent to the consumer market and I’m in need of modifying an existing CPU mount adapter, Swiftech’s Apogee Drive II for AMD to fit the Intel Narrow ILM Xeon socket layout. Fortunately, the change isn’t that big, just a few mm in one direction, and a few mm in another direction. So if I can just re-create the existing adapter, I can adjust the hole location to make it work for me.
I’ve attached an existing layout of the adapter mount and just need some help pointing me in the right direction on which software tools to use to create it, what tips to use to cut it, what material to use to make it, it needs to be stiff enough as there will be some tension on it.
One concerning part is there is one portion that is threaded which I’m not sure how to tackle.
