MMMMIDIMMMMF: Post 3 CAD + CNC

After the parts were all bought and measurable, i moved on to the CAD designs for the rest of the body.  The design involves slicing a sheet of 18mm MDF into two major pieces, with half-depth pockets for the cables to run down, and to hold the buttons in place.

On the above CAD Drawing, the yellow and green bits are cut out, the red are cut to 13mm for the buttons to sit in, the cyan to 8mm deep for cable runs, and the beige to the outline.

Then i spent a couple of hours playing with a CNC machine, and a thing was born:
