What should be the thickness of the aluminum profile?

Message par 3DStyle »

Hello,

I'm about to start my R-CNC project. The aluminum profile I can get in my country is 100x20, the 100x18 is unavilable.
I can get the aluminum profile from 2 different stores; one have it with 1mm thickness, and the other one have 2mm thickness.
The 2mm thickness is more expensive, and I would like to know if this 1mm diffrence worth the extra money?

Thanks!

Hi !
I think it will be the same result if you buy 1 or 2mm thickness because it's the geometry of the machine that makes its rigid, not the material used ;)

So today I bought all the necessary aluminum and steel profiles expect the 20x20 aluminum angle.
For what are exactly 2,5 meters 20x20mm aluminum angle? I can't find any information about them in the guide.

By the way, what should be the length of each one? In the parts list page it says 2.5 meters. How many peaces will I need and which length each one should be?

Here in the uk we cannot get it as profiles but can get 100mm x 18mm as straight edges for concrete tampering so thats what i have done seems to work ok.
