Hi Stirling,

I actually do know how you feel. I had taken off testing Terry's array probing to carve some foam and knew I was going to have a break for a day and was hoping to get the guitar digitized. Today's the break day! ;D Now as a gentle hint, what you showed in the video will work just fine for me as long as it does work.....hint....hint!

Hi Mike - sorry for the delay in replying.

I havn't wanted to post the routines until they were tidyer and easier to use because I've fallen foul of releasing software too early before - it just leads to grief and a lot of running round in circles - mainly for me ;D

Anyway I now have a bundle that you're welcome to try. I don't want to post it publicly yet until they've been "beta"'d by at least one person - and you seem to have volunteered yourself  :D. Drop me a PM with how I can get them to you (a 1.5 Meg zip) and we'll take it from there.

Cheers

Ian

IAN, if you need another tester let me know. I would be happy to help out and take it around the block a time or two. (;-) TP

Hi TP, No problem - as I said to Mike, drop me a PM with how I can get them to you (a 1.5 Meg zip) and we'll take it from there.

BTW Mike I took the .zip extension off and mail hasn't bounced it this time so hopefully you have it by now.

Cheers

Ian

Hi Ian,

I just got back from the shop from loading the program on the shop pc. I followed your readme.txt so now do I just run the gcode?

Mike

ps I had to come home for a while....frustration with not having the correct tool to try to do a simple job and my cnc machine is not equiped with a good holding system, i.e. vise! >:(

I feel the salt in the wound! Man you are cold! I'm redrawing them right now to get some new dimensions so I can do it on the table saw! How embarrassing ;D

Terry have you tried the new routine of stirling's? Do you run the gcode like with your array to get it to start?

Mikey just picking on YA. (;-) The wife is after me to get HER a sawdust slinger up and running. SO I guess I will SOON havta join the ranks and become a sawdust slinger myself.

I will havta rely on you for some help then. I dont do 3d as a habit.  I hope you are well versed on software to do the points cloud convertion thingy(;-)

SHE also said that ART had best get on the ball with his Laser scanner as SHE was NOT going to wait all day for some points to process. Talk about a TASK MASTER (;-)
