Excellent work Craig, this adds a whole new dimension to those curved signs of yours.  ;)

Thanks Guys, Yes I'm having FUN

Though Not a true power workhouse, This thing does have some versatility.  ;)

Used ArtCam for shape design from dxf file and then to create the stl file, Rhino to position the stl object in 3d space, DeskProto to generate the gcode, then a text editor to swap the axis's to the lathe profile.

Takes Years, a lot reading and then Trial & Error till it finally starts to make sense.
Now to see if I can write a post processor for Rhino5/MadCam 5axis

Lot more head/brain work than designing & building Progressive or Deep Draw Dies.  :o

got the 6th axis mounted and almost fully tuned, looking like it just might be a viable feature. I'm liking it.  :)

Converted two 4 cell MagLites to one 3.6volt rechargeable cell. Loving this lathe to cut ID and OD threads 27mm 1mm pitch. Makes a great lite next to the bed.

Very neat work Craig ( it makes it a better length to fit onto the 'old faithful' you keep under your pillow  ;D )
