Glen Jones from theboilershop.com.au is looking at giving away free cnc files for laser cutting. This offer is until the end of January 2020 only. To see what the items are and get access to the free dxf files, read below and watch the video.
Free dxf Download continued..
On the 1st of February 2020 I will launch my new design range of laser cut wrought iron features. I am looking for metal work enthusiast who would be willing to download and cut out Small weld in Features SF11 & or SF12 for free. This offer is only for the month of January 2020. You can see what SF11 and SF12 look like and their function in the attached video.
I would be grateful if
After you have downloaded and cut the parts out I would grateful for any feedback that could be shared with me, GOOD or BAD, as this will help me improve my system and provide the best possible service for future products that I make available. For those willing to give additional quality feedback with great photos and comments I would consider creating a relationship where I could provide you with free additional downloads of products that I design and make available for the return of quality marketing material that I can use.
It would assist me greatly if I was made aware of any problems that you find with the dxf download process before the launch date of 1st of February 2020.
Background of The Boiler Shop
These unique designs are only available from theboilershop.com.au and have been created by Glen jones to enhance traditional wrought iron architectural work. I have a range of other items which I intend to digitize and introduce and make available to download later in 2020.
I have previously designed, fabricated and assembled many functional cool items which you can see via my gallery link on my web page. It excites me when I know that some of my design work has ended up in places such as Toronto, Milwaukee, Ottawa & Sydney. I am now in the process of making all of my created work downloadable into CNC files and I look forward to witnessing my design work appear across the globe.
Computer Numerical Control (CNC) cutting has revolutionised the metal fabrication and welding industry. Common CNC cutting methods used by fabricators are laser cutting, plasma cutting, or water jet cutting. Laser cutting is the preferred CNC cutting method for most fabricators. To read more about the advantages and disadvantages of the different CNC cutting processes you will be able to read more soon on my Blogg page.
My intention for The Boiler Shop (TBS) is to provide a go to place for fabricators, welders & hobbyists to access and download DXF files & assembly videos which can be used for creative artistic fabrication applications. All the DXF files that you will be able to obtain from TBS have been designed by me. Refer to the youtube video on the home page which will display a lot of my work and the products that I intend to make available to download.
Laser cutting is my preferred method of CNC cutting and some of the intricate items that I have designed I will ONLY recommend laser cutting. Some items that I have designed the plasma cutting process can be used as the accuracy of the finished item is not as important. You can read more on this topic soon on my Blogg page.
We are in exciting times in the fabrication industry; the CNC landscape holds tremendous opportunity for young tradespeople. CNC skills are not just restricted to high speed cutting applications; the skills are also transferable into CNC bending and rolling equipment as well as robotic applications. With Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) software readily available and CNC cutting equipment becoming more affordable there is an increasing demand for fabricators with skills to operate and use CNC equipment. 3d printing applications are also becoming more widely used, but don’t get me started on that we will keep that discussion for another day.
