Ok not a problem whenever you have some free time
Yeah all your uploads worked without any issues. Was referring to the dxf file issue.
It seemed to me all of my uploads worked correctly. I that not the case? (Else I will use imgur)
Alright, I finished what I was building.
Here I explain how I did it:
How I built a thing. - Album on Imgur
I sold it at the local fair for $2500.
Anyhow, that's what was taking up all of my time, and why I didn't make any more posts here. The brake in this thread was able to make about 40% of the bends on the project. Though after making so many bends, I have found that the fingers in this design are nearly impossible to align. With 18 or 16 gauge steel the bends even themselves out, but on the 22 gauge I was using you can see changes in radius along the bend where the fingers stuck out differently. It would probably be best to not weld any fingers together and align them individually, with the armature clamped down against the desired thickness of metal, and to use real set screws, not hacked off bolts, which can move the fingers as you tighten them.
I may just make a better brake (but not more complicated) and do a detailed right up then. Unfortunately, that has to wait until I get my plasma cutter finished, which is a higher priority. And that unfortunately may have to wait until I can find some shop space to rent.
