    Benchmark 3.0

    Is there another way to get the benchmark 3.0 file. cant seem to access the ftp. dang admins?
  3. we ballbar our routers. not wood working tho, we are a composite shop. most routers are production trim mine is used mostly for tooling. it would not have been a route i would have initiated (10k investment) and it just tells you info on servo tuning and squareness, some other data as well. some one else pulled the trigger on ballbar purchase before i had chance to give input. now we have it so i use it. I could simply do a circle triangle square test and or manual tram sweeps etc. to accomplish similar info. we are not splitting hairs with our router just not designed for such.

    HAAS GM-2-5AX

    thanks for the reply however I need at least 48 inchs in y travel. I love rigidity and 50+ tools would be awesome. just shopping at this point. business is dicey so dont expect many to drop a lot of coin.
  9. any one on the forum have experience with this machine. looks promising for our needs. we make large layup molds and master patterns. our current machine struggles with aluminum and or we run those on our 1990's Fadal. that may explain why we would even consider a HAAS. I dont write the checks but those that do are pretty tight with the $$

    cast magnesium

    cast mag will warp. just be aware. cut like alum tho. dont run coolant if you can get away from it at most cost. if it lights up coolant will feed the fire bad. small cuts and as mentioned keep the chips under control.

    tolerances on File conversions

    there is serious problems with the understanding or lack of model base these days. our engineer sent me an stl file to program to, i asked for another format stp or iges. he sends me an iges with note that solidworks gave him errors bringing in the stl file. of course the iges file contained nothing. i asked for the native. oh thats a catia file he said. well just so happens that is the company standard and i have a seat. DUH. so this file was converted out of catia to stl then attempted conversion through solid works to iges. I am very confused of the thought path of even attempting that.

    Large block of wood

    thanks, will do
  15. to the large format pro's on the forum I have a 1000 pound block of MDF to cut on my machine. question is would it be safe to box this in with stops at the bottom and just run. what i am saying is no downward clamps on the part. let the weight of part keep it down. larges depth of cut will be .300 radial of aprox 1 inch. max.
