That's a possibility but converters can be found all over the net, I work with metric and Standard tooling so I have up to 1" 25.4mm locked on my head. With the exception of Machining I use the metric system quite often for measurements and I prefer it especially for model building.
Thanks Mike, I am going to attempt to do a lot of the work on my CNC so it will all be experimental. I will save all the GCode and will make it available to members of this build that have CNC's.
I was just looking through this feed trying to determine if CNC would be a good way to go with this build, I don't have a ton of space to cut all the pieces with the various machines needed. Have you had success with the CNC machine? I saw another thread where the person was building a wonderful battle station with CNC and it looked crisp and excellent.
I have not started my build yet but have downloaded the plans material and have been checking it out. I've also been reading all of the great build logs. I was especially interested in the comments in this post regarding Cannons. I have a lathe but am not sure that I can turn two Cannons that are duplicates. I do have a 3D Printer and investigated 3D Cannons. I found a number of objects that are already developed and free to use. I've attached a Cannon that I printed off that took be approximately 30 minutes to print. It took less than a meter of filament to print it. Cannon 1 is as it came off of the printer. Cannon 2 is as it was after I cleaned it up and sprayed it with primer. Cannon 3 is after I coated it with a medal simulating coating that I got at Michaels and Cannon 4 is after I painted it with a coat of flat black.
When I get started on my build I will probably use this as my Cannons.
Here are three files that are available. There are others also you just have to search on Thingiverse.com. The cannon I showed is the first one. I have also printed the wheels from the third file to use whenever I get to that part of the build.And where can I find the files to print?
