I’ve been experimenting with making custom polycarbonate X-drive Brackets. I’ve already gone through the process of designing them with CAD 3D printed a test piece for sizing and I want to make the final ones. I do not have access to a CNC machine of any kind to cut polycarbonate on so I resigned myself to do the while process by hand. I could do this for one set but I want to look into the possibility of getting them cut professionally on a CNC. A couple of months ago on the Forums, and found a service called SendCutSend. This thread discussed it’s legality applicability to vex. I was going to look into using this service as it is relatively reasonably priced and works with polycarbonate. But, SendCutSend’s thinnest polycarbonate is 0.118" (3.0mm) while Vex allows 0.07"(Just larger than 1/16", 1.67mm) This makes the service essentially useless as the part are technically illegal
Are there any other services that cut thin enough material? Has anyone else used a similar service in the past? Are there any things that I should avoid/look out for?
Any help would be much appreciated. I was able to take home parts to build an X-Drive test base and I hope to refine it and learn PROS and set up odometry before next season.
