5 axis opportunity in Scotland
« on: February 09, 2016, 07:29:40 AM »
 I'm looking for some help with the initial set-up and basic operation of this 5 axis cnc machine:  http://5axismaker.com  I purchased this for my company with the object of pursuing a single project goal and plodding my way through learning it myself but in the meantime I have picked up some interesting work for it that I would like to do ASAP.
I'd be looking for a someone to get me started with the machine and complete the first project, they'd have to have experience of Mach 3 and practical experience with a machine (not necessarily  a 5axis! ), experience of Rhino and grasshopper would be helpful but not mandatory
The work could be done at anytime that suits (evenings/weekdays or weekends) and I 'd pay a rate agreed.
Obviously I understand that this is likely to be a learning curve for anyone willing to have a go and i'm not expecting instantaneous results and I'd be more than happy to make the machine available to anyone who is willing to help me out. There would also be the opportunity of ongoing work on projects as they come in.

it would help if you knew what kind of 5 axis project your trying to do.  Are you wanting to do simultaneous 5 axis work where all axis`s are moving at the same time?

There is also indexing 5 axis.  Where the A and the B rotate to a certain set of degrees and then you fut a Gcode at that angle.

Deskproto is a good cam software to look at for 5 axis indexing.
