Thread: The Universal Carrier Base

  1. Default

    I purchased the ucb project yesterday as I was getting ready to upload the mpc to my card today I noticed the line at the top of the side cutout does not look quite straight. After looking at all the dimensions I noticed that the 1" dimension is 1.008 on the left and 1.000 on the right not much difference not sure how i even noticed it. Must be my new reading glasses. I am not sure if there is a reason for the different dimensions but I will take a guess and change them both to 1" before I cut the parts.

    Yes, you are right. Same for the corresponding point at the bottom of the mpc and same for the UCB 36. Those points should all be snapped to a 1/4" snap grid. I do not know how that happened. (Snap grid round off error when I had the grid at 1/16" I guess.)

    Change the snap grid to a 1/4" and snap those points.

    I do not think it is a serious enough problem to re-upload and recode the files. It bothers me all the same. Thanks for spotting it.

    I just right clicked then edit length typed 1.000 hit enter then right clicked again and removed the constraint no big deal

    What part of the project do you think is hard to do?

    Thanks Kevin. I think I finally have something that is simple and nearly everyone can use.

    Carrier in action. Some black walnut only 3/8" thick with a support board under it.

    Actually Suzanne it is not that bad. It looks like a lot to begin with but once you get started it is pretty easy. Mine is almost complete.
