Thanks everyone for the replies
Like the barrel very creative. Where did you get the barrel staves pattern?
I cut fifteen oak strips to a width of 2" and beveled each side 11.7° on the table saw, when clued together, created the full circle. I drew the curvature in Rhino giving me about 1/4" thickness at each end and just under 3/4 in the center.
Are you sure that your rotary isn't spinning backwards?
That's the first thing I check and that's not the problem. If I import (Y-axis only) it looks good on the input page, but when I accept the part, it will come in mirrored.
Anyway, Vectric Support has been made aware of the problem, so until then, I got to remember to mirror the letters before I machine them.
