Hi - I’m trying to model an accurate z-carriage and router mount for my 1000mm x-carve with the DeWalt 611. This is for the purpose of designing modifications to fit my machine.
I’ve gotten the carriage gantry plate box, the v-rail, and the dewalt mount and spindle body (I’ve not put the head on yet), but I just need the dimensions for the distance between the router center point and the v-rail. I’m designing a vacuum system for my machine, but I don’t have it next to me now and won’t be able to go to the workshop for a couple days.
Anyone able to help here? This is what I got so far:
My current design that needs modifying:
Any measurements or accurate models would be extremely helpful! Thank you!
Yeah I’ve seen that, I have that section done already - the DeWalt 611 mount doesn’t seem to be in the public repository so I’ve had to create my own. I’m a little further along now, but there’s still the matter of the mount itself…
Almost finished the thing anyway just using measurements from all the other parts, so if anyone wants a z-carriage model with the dewalt 611 sitting in it for accurate modification designs, just let me know!
The first was good enough thanks!
For anyone reading this, I made a very effective and simple fixed dust shoe for the 611 that just uses a little 5mm acrylic. The F360 file and images are in this thread: Dust shoe made from 5mm acrylic (files included)
*The Fusion file also includes an extremely accurate Z-Axis & Dewalt 611 model for anyone wanting to make adjustments.
