Facing Material for Machining using #Fusion360 #Othermill #CNC

I picked up a piece of pine from the craft store and thought it’d be worth using in a future project. When I brought it home, I noticed the top and bottom surfaces were pretty warped and unleveled. Woodworks often deal with this problem and use hand planer or mechanical surface planers to level out stock.

In this tutorial I walk through the process of facing material for machining using an Othermill desktop CNC and Autodesk Fusion 360. Facing material is the procedure in which the top surface of stock is removed to make it even and leveled.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
