So, basically, I am needing to get some files made so that I can create some hub rings for my wheels. Tired of dicking with this wobble.

Basically, I have someone that can do the CNC stuff, but they want to charge an arm and a leg for puting in the codes/measurements.

Anyone able to help out to create the below drawing?

It's all relative to the operating system and tooling they are running. You can't write a program without selected tooling or knowing the machine and operating system they are running. Just find a shop with manual machines, that part is simple and could be made quickly on an engine lathe with 2 tools and a piece of stock big enough for all 4.

Either take it to a manual shop, or pay him to write the code. Without having the post file specific to his machine, there's no telling that it'll work, plus there's no shop out there that will let you just hand them g-code...it could crash their machine without verification and it's just safer to post it yourself. Plus feeds and speeds could be wrong, offsets incorrect, etc. It's just not gonna happen on a cnc without the person who runs/owns the machine doing the code for you.


Here's a dxf, solid model, and pdf for you though...might save you some money. At the very least it'll make it easier for a machine shop to make the parts since there's a print.

If you give them the solid model it should save you some bucks. I would think they can run it through Mastercam or whatever they have and have the code for their specific CNCrather quickly. Someone correct me if I am wrong.
Depends on how the shop does their billing, but usually yes, it'll save you.

No problem brotha...I live in SolidWorks all day at work, and a lot at home lol.

Discount tire carrys a ton of hub rings also. Im not sure if youve tried there yet but they might have what you need and save you the entire process of making some. Discount only carries plastic ones though. I worked there about a year ago and they typically would have around 6 or 7 of the most common sizes
