Poison Dart Build Log


Not too much to be said. Felt like trying some 3d contouring on the MITERS CNC and made a clamshell plastic drum spinner.

Tiny plastic drum next to Jamison’s big 12lb drum.

The drum was 3d milled in 2 operations.


The robot consists of 2 pretty much identical HDPE halves bolted together. Surface finish is pretty terrible, but perhaps next time I’ll use one of the fancy single flute carbide endmills in the shop next door.
