Greene and Greene draw pull progress

I am working on building up my Youtube Channel and my Leo's Workshop mini business. I have been posting some progress on the Greene and Greene draw pull. I did post some modeling questions on the draw pull. Please forgive, but my channel is not 100% about Vectric, even though Vectric is the major pr...

Re: Z-Zero shifting mid-process

Yes I personally have had it happen to me. The situation will be different depending on many different things. More likely than not you are losing steps on the "Z" azis. The X & Y look fine. What can cause it? Lot of things like - but NOT in order: "Z" axis tops out. It retracts too high and hits th...

Re: un-grouping letters

WOW, I sure did open up a can of worms. I certainly did not mean to create any problems for anyone. First of all I am a newbie to the cnc world, and I have so much to learn, and I am a slow learner. I sincerely appreciate everyone's help. I realize it is important to have a flat board to begin with...

Re: MACH3 Shaking and jittery on 3D relief cut

Shaky jittery stuff has to do with CV, and exact stop and a few other things. Greolt is highly knowledgeable in Mach 3. I would defer to his knowledge on the subject. I have played around a bit in Mach3 settings and the combination add up to a LOT of variations. Play around with what he suggested. G...

Re: un-grouping letters

You can make sure the board is parallel to the spindle. I can understand that.

What I cannot under stand is why. But then, maybe you want to do some "end" working. :lol:

Re: Getting a smooth pocket in HDU

Yeah. I get that also.

Fortunately HDU is REALLY easy to sand. I often times use a chisel as a scraper.

Someday, I'll figure something out, but for now I just deal with it. If you find a solution I would LOVE to know about it.

Re: Corner Rounding - How to do it question

F360 is a true 3D modeling program and creating fillets and chamfers is a piece of cake. This is how I skinned the cat in Aspire :D Created three closed vectors of the the levels. Then in the Modeling Tab I used the Create shape from vector outline Tool to create three components. I used a .125" he...

Re: Corner Rounding - How to do it question

GOT IT - Thanks Ted. Thank you ALL for jumping into this. I really DO appreciate the help. I knew it could be done.

I used the 2 rail sweep just like Ted said.

Actually, I am more happy with this than the Fusion model.

Re: Corner Rounding - How to do it question

I think you need to break it down into 3 individual items then merge them together. You can use a two rail sweep: Capture.PNG So you make three of these, each one thicker than the one before. Then merge them all together. That long radius down the length will get covered by each subsequent componen...

Re: Corner Rounding - How to do it question

Close, but not there yet. Well at least I am getting the creative juices flowing. Look closely at my Fusion radii, then look closely at the pic I marked up. Look at the RED lines. I want the radii ONLY on the red lines. The radii on the vertical surfaces are different that the horizontal surfaces 2 ...

Re: Corner Rounding - How to do it question

This is where I get to on the Aspire model. I can do sculpting, but I cannot do sculpting AND get a uniform .062 Corner Round.

How can I create a uniform .062 corner round on the edges shown?

Re: Corner Rounding - How to do it question

Ted - that's the nice thing about CAD and CAM. CAD can do it - but CAM cannot. Been there done that so many times before. Yep - its true - but the nice thing is that CAM will at least try. The other part is that the ball nose, and the taper on the Tapered Ball nose WILL leave the resultant tool shap...

Re: un-grouping letters

Ted, You are hitting my point exactly. The problem is -- we really do not know what blacktrain is running into, therefore, we are "guessing". If blacktrain could engage more in the discussion we could did deeper and come up with a better solution, but for whatever reason, blacktrain is not engaging....
