These tooling plates are designed to be mounted to the Sherline 4″ CNC Rotary table to hold parts that are being laser scanned. Each plate has a pattern of 10-32 threaded holes for use in holding fixtures to align parts for 3D laser scanning. A series of concentric circles are also machined into the face of the plate to aid in visual centering of the parts to be scanned. An access hole is provided that should be aligned with the oiler hole on the surface of the rotary table for lubrication. On the bottom of the table, an alignment protrusion is provided that helps center the plate on the counter-bored hole in the center of the rotary table. Four 10-32 socket head cap screws and T-nuts are provided with each plate for securing it to the T-slots on the rotary table’s surface. The aluminum plates have a tough black anodized finish.
All three plates are shown here in one photo as a means of comparison. They come in sizes 8″, 10″, and 12″ in diameter. All are designed to be used on Sherline 4″ Rotary Tables.
Notes on the Use of the Plates
These plates are not intended for machining operations. A radial force at the outer diameter of the plate will exert more force on the rotary table worm, and worm gear for which the 4″ rotary table was designed. This plate was designed for laser scanning ONLY. Because the scanning plate is much larger than our 4″ rotary table, all parts that are mounted on the plate for scanning must be centered on the plate. Centering the part will locate the weight load in the middle of the rotary table.

We offer two types of 3D object files: .igs and .stp.
To view .igs files you need an IGS viewer. CLICK HERE to download a FREE IGS viewer.
To view .stp files you need an STP viewer. CLICK HERE to use Autodesk’s FREE A360* online file viewer. STP is a file extension for a 3-D graphic file used by CAD software. STP stands for STandard for the Exchange of Product model data. STP files are used to store 3D image data in an ASCII format, following the standards defined in ISO 10303-21: Clear Text Encoding of the Exchange Structure.
Each 3D file format has been compressed into a single .rar file to save file space. Click on the .rar file link(s) below to download it to your computer.
Extract the .rar file to the drive location of your choice.
If your system cannot decompress RAR files, CLICK HERE to download WinRAR software.
Open the .igs file using the IGS Viewer, or open the .stp file using the A360 Autodesk online viewer.
*NOTE: There are also other free STP viewers that can be downloaded directly to your computer.
