Re: post for mach3

Marv I even ran the same cutfile twice on the part in the picture, so tool pressure was a non issue the second time around. Jim When I was shopping I ran across some information on the net about the owner of Dyna, long story short he had helped a couple guys get 8020 machines up and running that ano...

Re: post for mach3

Marv you hit the nail on the head with the lightweight machine. I am really disappointed in the dyna cnc router. I have had problems with it since day one. The biggest problem is that it is just not rigid enough, and they know it. Their tech support is trained to blame everything on software issues ...

Re: post for mach3

Thats exactly what I was thinking, I left the material on the machine and cut the same pocket with raster instead of offset and cut just slightly deeper, the results are not what I would like, but they are much better.

Re: post for mach3

I dont know what the file extension would make any difference either. The machine isnt the most rock solid either, but I have looked it all over and cant find anything so loose as to get that bad of results. The machine has servos and not stepper motors and I do not know anything about that end of t...

Re: V-bits

I have a cet of the centrion 3 sided v-bits. Is there anyway I can touch them up myself without sending them back to be sharpened? I was thinking a diamond hone might do the trick.

Thanks for the quick reply Paul. I was hoping there was an easier way. There are probably 150 or so places I need to add the radius.

adding fillets

I have a drawing I need to add fillets to all the corners so I can cut the shapes and also cut a pocket for the shape to sit in. Is there a way to do this with vcp? The create fillets tool only works if you have straight lines and my drawing has some beziers.

Vectric would be a great program to have for the router part of your new machine. I dont know much about the plasma end of things maybe Tony or Brian will chime in on that. I would be very careful with practical cnc, pm or e-mail me if you would like to know more.

I spent some time looking around at joewoodworker. Does anyone sell a pump that is all ready to go without having to rig it up yourself (other than your jigs). I have a job right now that this would be an ideal set up.

Very nice work bag. How big is the sign? Did you use any masking to speed up the painting? I usually spend way more than 5 hour painting hdu signs, would be nice to speed things up some.

Tony thanks for the quick reply. I did a quick test and all seems to work now. The toolpaths were from the previous job with a different material. I didnt realize they were still there. I use my table bed as zero quite often when doing 2d profiles. Some days I have several different types and sizes ...
