Vacuum Table: Showcase

A few months ago we ordered some cheap ABS cases from Aliexpress. I planned to replace the side inserts with laser-cut ones. But it turned out that the replacement was not so easy to produce :confused:

Then I jumped into designing a vacuum table. My idea was to have a base (green) and different tops (blue) to hold the parts (red) in place.

The shop vac does not like its new job :wink: But milling a set takes about 2โ€™. So it wonโ€™t overheat. At first I expected the parts to fly around the shop. But nothing happened: It just worked :sunglasses:

By the way: The whole vacuum table was milled with Kiri. Also the paths for milling the inserts are done with Kiri. Trace does a very good job there. Thanks @stewart :slight_smile:
