Shapeoko 3 supplemental wasteboard to be used with threaded inserts.
The wasteboard dimensions are 16.75in wide x 14.25in tall - 3/4" material thickness is recommended, but 5/8" material thickness is the minimum.
|Filename||File Type||File Size|
Open this file in Carbide Create (v420 or higher required).
The grid is set to 2" x 2" (with offsets on the bottom and sides to center the hole pattern). You can use this default grid, or if you are looking for something a little less dense, feel free to delete entire rows or columns of holes through the editor.
Toolpaths applied to the design file are for the holes only. It is suggested you pre-cut the piece of MDF to the dimensions shown, then take the time to horizontally center the board on your machine when placing it all the way to the front edge (touching the front plate).
Threaded inserts (and hex driver) are available through the Carbide 3D store: https://shop.carbide3d.com/collections/accessories/products/threaded-inserts-qty-100

SerialPyro posted 3 years agoHello, on the cad model the dimensions are 14.25 by 16.75, but on the prints it shows 14.5 by 17. Which one is accurate? Thank you!
Jmcwoodworking posted 1 year agoRan this file today. Worked perfectly with a couple of exceptions. First the touch probe can not be used. When I centered the board on the bed, it was about 1/2" too wide for the router to reach the probe on the corner. I manually set x,y and z. The other thing is that some of the holed were not cut through. This must've been the piece of MDF I had, Just a heads up. Now waiting for the inserts to come.
