Wireless charging port, inlay with Origin
« on: August 31, 2022, 05:47 PM »
This is part of a display table that will be in the lobby. It is not complete yet, but in the works, pics of the complete unit in a few days.
This little part was somewhat of an afterthought. The charger is mounted under the table, with a need to show the location. Glacier White Corian with a V-groove engraving that was filled with a light gray adhesive. This was all done with the "on board" abilities of the Shaper Origin. It's a simple 6" x 3" rectangle with a .5" radius corners, simple text and the lightning bolt was just point-to-point with the pen tool.

This looks great. I can see adding something similar to all sorts flat surfaces.

What's the thickness between the surface and the point where the charger gets mounted on the bottom?

Cute.  That onboard placement is a godsend.

How do you find the corian holds up to use?

Lovely piece of detail. I’ve been Jonesing over an Origin ever since it first appeared, but I can’t justify the expense as I know I’d only ever put it to limited use right now. Maybe at some point in the future, a project will come along which will persuade me to bite the bullet.

You may want to reconsider that...the Origin is going up $300.  [sad]

It's a simple 6" x 3" rectangle with a .5" radius corners, simple text and the lightning bolt was just point-to-point with the pen tool.

Nice job on the charging port, simple & clean. Does the thickness of the Corian need to be reduced under the port for the charger to work properly?

Ditto!

Also, after adding adhesive to fill the groove did you sand and polish or what?

The particular charger that is under there says it will charge through as much as 32 mm of solid wood, but that you should confirm that it will work with whatever material you intend to use.
The Corian is not thinned under that spot. It is the full 12mm as usual. I checked it with several phones to be sure.
The infill is just a light gray of the same adhesive that is used in normal fabrication. I V-grooved it to a depth of 0.040 with the standard bit that comes with Origin. I just over-filled the grooves and let it cure for 20 minutes or so. It cures hard as a rock in just a few minutes, depending upon the temperature of the room, it is slower in the winter. Then the RO125 and 80 grit levels it right off. There were a couple of bubbles that took a second filling to eliminate, but that's an easy fix. The adhesive tends to bubble as it heats up if it is not compressed in the joint.
Personally, I would have eliminated the O and made the lightning bolt bigger to represent it, but it wasn't my call.

Solid Surface is a bit of a pain to deal with. It routes beautifully, no grain direction to consider and no tear-out. But it is very dense, so it is harder on bits and blades than they would lead you to believe. The dust is somewhat gritty, so you have to be careful about letting it get into motors. I prefer to not cut it on a router table for that very reason. I use insert style bits whenever possible and at a feed-rate much higher than you would expect. When cutting properly, it puts out huge fluffy shavings rather that dust, but that really only happens when flush-trimming.  Other operations, like dados, are just not so conducive to that kind of chip-load. Saw blades just make dust.

Lovely piece of detail. I’ve been Jonesing over an Origin ever since it first appeared, but I can’t justify the expense as I know I’d only ever put it to limited use right now. Maybe at some point in the future, a project will come along which will persuade me to bite the bullet.
I don't use mine nearly as much as I would like, but we have been so busy lately that I just don't have the time. It has come in handy several times for hardware installs though. It's great for Soss hinges. The sad thing is now I want one of those new template things that they call "Plate". So another $375 accessory for an already expensive tool.
