CNC Shield Chaika Engraving

In my CNC machining course, we had a project to cut a small shield out of aluminum and add an engraving of our choice in MasterCAM.

Now this assignment was pretty vaguely worded and had a lot of superfluous cutting, so I got fed up and made my engraving of the face of an anime girl. Here’s the result:

Yeah, I went there.

The assignment involved writing a report (ooh!) and photographs of the part. Dimensions from the assignment, shown below.

This, easy part.

The instructions project instructions, very inefficient. Instead, from the project sheet, focus on important point:

 

“30% of the total mark will be awarded based on the engraving design and realization.”

“30% of the total mark will be awarded based on the engraving design and realization.”

“30% of the total mark will be awarded based on the engraving design and realization.”

 

Mwee?

Mwee!

Chaika’s face, in report. Serious business, make clear. TA, will appreciate cuteness.
