Here is a video of a new machine in development. Purpose was more to test multiple tools using a preset Z Zero to bed rather than surface. Model is one of the included clip art. Toolpath with VCPro.

Nice sturdy machine, Gary.

How did you hold the model at the end of the cut? A manually removed onion skin?

For those who hesitate spending more bucks to buy a sturdy machine versus a light one, have a look at Gary's video.

A cheap machine can't simply achieve this quality level and a lot of issues I've seen on this forum can be avoided with a serious CNC like this one.
Best regards

LGM...
You're right on. Material was .9" I took two .4" passes and left a .1" onionskin. A lot of users overlook the importance of good hold down when trying to obtain a good finish. The rigidity of the machine and power of the servos don't hurt either!
