Re: Need help Dishing out a 'Consistent' Radius

I said I imposed a 25'R, it was actually 15R. (typical radius for a back, not a top). Procedure is the same, just use a circle segment of 7620mm for a 25.

Re: Need help Dishing out a 'Consistent' Radius

I think this may be what you are looking for. I started with a 600x600mm material size, and imposed a 25'R ( 4572mm) shape on that. That creates a dish of about 19.5 mm at the periphery. So I put -20mm in the ball shape profile in the create shape tool, and created it. Then I trimmed the resulting m...

Re: beginner issues

My Laguna IQ uses the Rich Auto DSP HHC and it has a 4 GB limitation on the USB drive. Try using a 2 or 4 GB USB drive.

Re: End grain cutting board with end grain and Epoxy inlay

Very nice. And it looks durable enough to survive the 108 year interval between Cubs' world series wins. Go Cards!

Re: Cutting board with inlay

I like the use of top end grain. Makes for a much better cutting board.
Like the Ninja bear too.

Re: changing cross section start point in two rail sweep

Odd. I discovered by experimenting that the start point of the "offending" cross sections (dictating the direction the cross section is hung across the rails) could be changed by rotating the cross section. Seems like there has to be a better solution than that. FYI the little numbers at the start o...

changing cross section start point in two rail sweep

I'm working on a model (the scroll of a violin neck) that requires many different cross sections in the sweep. I've learned that to make the vertical component come out right, the vertical portion (here, the drop of the scroll around the center) has to sit flat/horizontally. The sweeps are in the at...

Create a vector of model shape at specific location

Like most guitar makers, I use a "dish" to shape the top and back of my guitars. I typically use a 15' radius dish for the back, and 28' for the top. Several years ago, folks on this forum helped me develop a method for modeling the dish (two rail sweep with (1) a tiny circle in the middle, and (2) ...

Re: What do you do while the CNC is running?

Very interesting clamping jig you're using. Are those plastic tubes or metal? Tex, This is a go bar deck . It is handy for gluing things that are irregular and/or not flat. In this case the wood is sitting on a dish with a 15' radius to give the back of the guitar some curvature. The brace wood has...
