![generating the x axis](https://gitlab.cba.mit.edu/jakeread/machineweek/raw/master/images/machine-x-axis-setup.jpg)
I go to the CAM section right away, and setup some stock. First thing, our Shopbots are setup in Inches, so check that in the 'units' in the top of the tree. I'll use a 0" offset on top of the model, 0.05" on the bottom (then we can be sure to cut through later on) and a 0.75" offset on the sides - I want to be sure to clear the screws I'll be using to fixture my HDPE sheet.
For tools, I set up with a 1/8" 'O-Cutter' - as in, one flute. This is going to be my detail workhorse - it'll cut teeth and holes. I also have 1/4" O-Cutter to do profiles and cutouts. My two other tools are a Chamfer Endmill, used for, well, the chamfers, and a 1/16" 2-flute endmill for some detailing on the pinion. Here's a quick table of the tools, and their feeds and speeds. I used [the CBA Feeds and Speeds Calculator](https://pub.pages.cba.mit.edu/feed_speeds/) to ballpark these, and I'll dial them in as I test the first axis.
Type | Flutes | Diameter | What For | Feed, XY (IPM) | Feed, Plunge (IPM) | Spindle Speed (RPM)
--- | --- | --- | --- | --- | --- | ---
Endmill | 1 | 1/8" | Most Details, Holes | 55 | 25 | 13500
Endmill | 1 | 1/4" | Cutouts, Grunt | 55 | 25 | 7000
Endmill | 2 | 1/16" | Pinion Detail | 75 | 25 | 20000
Chamfer Mill | 2 | 1/2" | Rail Edges | 100 | 50 | 6000
I also have a tool library for Fusion 360, include TODO here.

- Careful on Blocks! Trim and Align

- 1/16" for M3 Taps ? if they are M4s you can do 1/8"
-> DO THAT
-> NOW: this, circle once again w/ M4 Hardware in the Rails
-> Order 0.9* steppers, send list to others
-> Circle on CAM and bring up for test! does HDPE work? :|
