Re: Cut this snowman on my 4th axis

Hi

Thank you for your interest. This was my first video so it's not that good.



But the link above should take you there.

Thank you.

Re: Candy Cane Ornaments done on my 4th axis

I used a ribbon tried with a square knot. There is a youtube video on Candy Cane Ornaments from As Wood Turns where he describes everything in great detail. I used that idea to make mine on the 4th axis. The big difference was drill the hole for the candy cane. He just had a drill bit and moved it i...

Candy Cane Ornaments done on my 4th axis

I just finished these 4 candy cane ornaments for my grandkids.
I basically did everything except for cutting the wood to size, drilling the hole for the string
and sanding, on my CNC machine and my 4th axis.

Re: Sometime file opens as Vcarve 10.0 not 10.5

I paid a little more attention when I tried to install another gadget. When I open the gadget after I download it, it installs on version 10.0.
How do I make it install on version 10.5?

Thank you.

Sometime file opens as Vcarve 10.0 not 10.5

It doesn't happen all the time. But like today, I installed the wrapping gadget and when I tried to open an existing file created in Vcarve Pro 10.5 it says that it can open it because Vcarve Pro 10.0 opened it. Somewhere I think that there is some sort of default that makes Vcarve open to 10 not 10...

Cut this snowman on my 4th axis

By using the design I found for making a snowman on a lathe. I used those dimensions to design my snowman using the molding toolpath. I also made a youtube video on how I designed it. It took a lot longer to make the video than I thought it would. I had no idea how much time, thinking, and redoing g...

Re: Does it matter what side of the 4th axis that you cut on?

If you are moving from headstock to tailstock, what side should you be on? I am hoping the left side so it will be simple to zero x and y.

Thank you.

Does it matter what side of the 4th axis that you cut on?

On my CNC's 4th axis I cut from the top; however, I was thinking of using some profile cutters that will cut from the side. So I was wondering if it matters on what side of the headstock you place the router on because of how the router is spinning?

Re: Tall ship and lighthouse

Hi, nice job, I also have that pattern. I haven't cut it out yet but I have one question and one comment. What bit did you use to do the finishing cut? I don't know if I should use a a tapered 1/8 inch bit or a tapered 1/16 inch bit. My comment is that I am going to use clipping to remove the pictur...
