this is the code i used to cutoff the ring ..

G00 Z10.0000
X0.0000 Y6.8000
G01 Z-5.000 F150.0
G17
G03 Y-6.8000 I0.0000 J0.0000
Y6.8000 I0.0000 J0.0000
G00 Z50.0000
G00 Y0.0000
M05
M30

now it occurs to me this should be reasonably simple to setup in mach as a macro that will popup a dialog box and ask me for Green = ((Fingersize/2)-(Cutter Radius)) and Red = (Depth below Z0) then run that code?

this was initially printed because i didnt like the angles involved.. the "thing" that arrived back post casting was not worth even removing from its packet.. i did the job properly on the mill..

lesson learned..

nice ring.. 1.74 ct stone with some mellee..
