I have been posting some 4th axis stuff on the Vectric forum to encourage users to consider the possibilities of adapting Aspire to a 4th axis.

Anyway I made this little youtube video.  ;D

Greg,
Not sure if you saw the posting by someone selling software for doing work on the 4th axis.
May be worth looking into.

Yeah there are a few utilities for doing bits and pieces on the cheap with a 4th axis.

The Indexer Wizards

Virtual Indexer Tool, for shopbot

D2nc

and my favourite, Wrapper, which is free.

I had ago at making lithophanes on a rotary axis.

Great little utility program this CNCWrapper, best twenty bucks I ever spent,   http://www.cncwrapper.com/

As i sometimes do, I made a Youtube video.   ::)

My partner saw this video and laughingly said "You sound really daggy!"

That's Australian slang, and most of you may not have heard that expression.

So to hear what it means to be a DAG or DAGGY, then watch the video.  ;D
