    These are some variations of a knockdown (no welding) fire pit DXF files. Also I made up 3 variations of the side plates, one with plain slots, one with bears, one with moose. It was designed for 1/4 inch thick material but it should work for thinner stock also. The "large is 37" and the "small is 31" across. You will need 1 bottom plate, 4 side plates and 4 supports. If there are any problems please let me know. Enjoy

    Has anyone had any warping issues with this design? I'm wondering how well the base plate will hold up.

    The files are in DXF format, maybe try to "import" them.

    what size sheet do you need to have to cut all those pieces out? looks like a 4x8?

    Not sure, I did not lay it out. Download and layout the pieces.

    When you "import" the files make sure you have the AutoCAD scaling option set to English, 1 unit=1 inch. That should fix it

    Thanks for sharing this!
    But I got a question.
    About the bottom plate, sure I can use scaling function to enlarge the size, but the gaps for assembling support and side plate are also enlarged.
    Should I change the gaps into the thickness of the sheet metal I used ?

    You will have to scale all of the parts. It would be better to change the gaps.

    Hi Mike,
    I have scale it so I can use 1/8 plate. But the high is to short. If I offset the top part of the side plates, do you think it will still go together ok?

    Like I said before, it would be better to change the gaps.

    I have cut one out of 3mm mild steel. have only used it once with pine and the base plate warped slightly. if you were to burn hotter burning wood im sure it would warp even more. i did how ever scale the large model up a fraction so i could put more detail into the side panels. would reccommend using thicker plate on base or wielding stiffeners in.

    How do I save this to my jump drive to take to my CNC machine?

    Ive cut many of these out of 10ga, haven't noticed any warpage yet but does it really matter? I don't wanna haul around a piece of 1/4" just to eliminate warpage. These look real cool with different designs in the sides.

    it's a link to a .zip file - if clicking on it takes you somewhere - then that would be due to your system configuration - you should be able to right click on it and hit save-as - and save it on your drive -

    then right click on that .zip file and hit extract-all (or similar) - and follow the prompts - to extract the actual .dxf file(s)

    then start your design software and hit file-import (or file-open) to load the .dxf file(s)

    if you just click to open a .dxf file in windows (or in a browser) then what happens depends on if and how windows is configured to handle .dxf files
