Re: metric on the fly

I don't seem to have an export to pdf option, perhaps a feature of a newer version than I am using

Re: metric on the fly

Most things are simple once you know how to do them Adrian, I never had the need to measure/work in metric until now, not even once, so was out in the dark on this one. I did notice the mm setup, thanks Joe, and set it up. I am trying to print out a template for a guitar part, problem now is its pri...

Re: Profile not cutting deep enough

99% of CNC problems are operator error and every single one of us has made many mistakes, major and minor - So odds are something is skewed in your settings, really impossible to tell without access to the file.

Are you zeroing to the table bed or material top ?

Re: 3D tool-pathing; Roughing vs Finishing

The finish pass doesn't care if its been roughed or not. I use roughing on an as needed basis, and it is needed when hogging out large amounts of material in hard wood and/or plexiglas. Soft woods, shallow cuts you might well get by without the need to rough, totally your choice - And yes, you do ta...

Re: Well worth the time

Turned out great obviously, I personally would not have stained it - For the record, I would have used matte clear coat, light sanding after drying then another coat, topped off with a coat of beeswax. I think the time is way too high, should not take more than 4-6 hrs for something that size. I kno...

Re: SOA 3d

Purpleheart, large [for me] at 16x12", probably as close to a table top as I will ever get [actually ,my machine is capable of doing one twice this size, would take some nerve, alot of time and a large chunk of wood]. Came out nice, lettering is a little weak. Its a fine line between going too deep...

Re: SOA 3d

Inlay is upper left BTW, not right.
That seemed to be an era when I caught on how to impose one model on to another so I went on a bender and did quite a few of them in a short span.
Purpleheart has been hanging near a full decade, still nice and purple, some guys report it fades to brown in time.

Re: Ya! or Na !

You are a self admitted petty thief and actually expect a serious reply ?

Get over it, if you are so anti update then turn off all updates on your PC and smart phone, see how well that works out for ya.

Re: Resin Inlay $20 Target Cutting Board Test

By golly, looks like the test was a success !

Hardwood is pretty pricey here too, don't know the dimensions of the wenge but I can see a thick slab like that going over $100.
