@thejeepguy welcome to the group! Sounds like your off to a good start!
Welcome to the group. I’m on the western slope, are you over here as well?
Welcome to the forum!
I’m sure there are quite a few experienced people in your part of the country. Enjoy the learning and don’t let the size determine your limits, I’ve made cuttings as large as 72" in Y on a 2x2 table.
Welcome to the fun! I’m on the front range, black forest area. Here’s the link to the post with the map:
Im on the front range as well. Near Loveland. Lots of help on this forum. A bunch of knowledgeable people.

I’m over in Montrose. Been through MV so many times on the way to Santa Fe. Happy Thanksgiving!

Sure, I lived in Ouray for several years, had a CJ7 and CJ5 for a while. I think I’ve seen your Jeep sign on 285 just up from the DQ.
ya I’m sure you have. I’m currently cutting back and selling off a lot of my innovatory its just too much to keep p with. January ill be closing the shop to the public. i want to enjoy building them one at a time. not to mention some time off
those are sweet ill defently keep that in mind. what cad and cam programs are you useing? im having a very hard time learning the software side of all this
For this type of project, I use FreeCAD and Sheetcam.
For anything with text or artistic stuff, I use Inkscape and Sheetcam. FreeCAD is not great for those type things. It can do it, but it’s not a simple process.
Sometimes, I’ll design something in FreeCAD and then export it as an SVG and add text in Inkscape.
Fusion can do all of those things, but I had already learned FreeCAD for 3d printing and didn’t want to put in the time to learn Fusion.
ill have to try learning that insted im having no luck with fusion
What do you want to learn in fusion…2D or 3D? It’s a little difficult to move around for the first few weeks. I’m happy to help if you have designs or things your trying to build.
@thejeepguy welcome to the forum
I’ll give you a chance to start GIVING advice in your first week on the forum…
I have a 2003 Rubicon TJ with 16,000 miles on it. Always garaged, never driven in rain let alone off-road, near perfect condition. Black.
From my reading, the 2003 Rubicon was the first year with Dana lockable FR/RR axles, beefed transfer case with extra low ratios, and an increased HP engine tune. It was touted as a factory rock crawler when launched. It’s only “flaws” are soft-top with no AC and auto trans. I know most crawlers prefer manual trans.
Any idea what I should ask for it? I plan to get rid of it within the next 3-6 months.
fusion just has so much to it iget confused
