Machining the F1 Car

This video from Boxford demonstrates CNC machining of an F1 car. The full designing and making process is shown from a CAD design through to a finished product. Firstly the product is designed in a 3D modelling CAD package such as Pro/Desktop. It is then exported in STL format and file is processed. The routing...

What is 3D printing?

This video provides a great overview to 3D printing, looking first at different ways of manufacture, before explaining the 3D printing process. The video is presented by the Head of the Institute for Manufacturing, Professor Tim Minshall, and would well as an introduction to 3D printing or as a revision video...

3D Scanning

This video from Boxford demonstrates 3D scanning and reverse engineering of products using a 3D scanning machine. The 3D scanning machine is shown followed by the object, an ornamental cat, which is to be reverse engineered. Full 360 degree laser scanning of the ornament is performed. The scanned object is then...

Photo Machining

This video from Boxford demonstrates the process of photo CNC machining. The full designing and making process is shown from a CAD design through to a finished product. Firstly a bitmap or jpeg image of a woman’s face is imported into CAD software. This is then processed...

Pegasus

This resource from Boxford facilitates the manufacture of a 3D figure of a Pegasus from sheet material. This could be used as an exemplar for a project to design and make a ‘flat pack’ 3D item or to demonstrate the capabilities of a CNC laser cutter. It includes the CAD files for each of the component parts of the...

PCB Board Machining

This video from Boxford shows the process of printing a printed circuit board using a CNC router. It shows the complete process from the initial CAD design through to a fully routed circuit board. Firstly a design for the circuit is created using CAD software. This is then exported as a Gerber file and processed....

MT2 Steel Machining

This video from Boxford shows the process of steel CNC machining. It shows the complete process from the initial CAD design through to a finished product. A 2D CAD file is designed using Techsoft Mill Design. CAM processing then takes place, starting with selecting cutting depths by colour. The routing process is...

Machining Acrylic Using The Vacuum Bed

This video from Boxford demonstrates acrylic CNC machining using a vacuum bed. The full designing and making process is shown from a CAD design through to a finished product. A 2D CAD file for a penguin shaped CD rack is designed using Techsoft Mill Design. CAM processing then takes place and the routing process...

Hardwood Machining

This video from Boxford demonstrates the use of a CAM router to produce a design for a wheel using hardwood. The full designing and making process is shown from a CAD design through to a finished product. Firstly the wheel is designed in a 3D modelling CAD package such as Pro/Desktop. It is then exported in STL...

Foamex Machining Using Vacuum Bed

This video from Boxford demonstrates Foamex CNC machining using a vacuum bed. The full designing and making process is shown from a CAD design through to a finished product. Firstly the product, in this case a small model chair, is designed in a 3D modelling CAD package such as Pro/Desktop. It is then exported in...
