  1. Family Farm I grew up there, well I'm almost grown up
  2. this is a test, only a test
  3. I won 7 days, where is my vacation check?
  4. I got a one year badge, a year of what? been here since 2001
  5. why not just turn then verses milling? I've always used gcode never mazatrol post a file or a pic and I'll help
  6. I always used morph between 2 curves. If your on the sub you have to sync the spindles. Mazaks cant run 5 axis on the sub alone, it needs the main active too
  7. right click on your toolpath and export your toolpath and import to a new part. all your settings stay, just move your X line to your new depth and regen
  8. "I generally create offset drive surfaces when I want to leave extra material" Bob wins the internet
  9. I didn't tweak it, just a quick example of what 5 axis paths can do for you. Adjust and play with settings and lie a little on contour selection, that will change the complete path results but you will not get slivers, (until you clean your table)
  10. I use morph between 2 curves, ya 5x path. outside contour and a .005 circle in the middle. Modualworks has it figured out.
  11. Not sure for your area, in my area a lot of shops use the MSC style vending machine. Every tool pulled is tracked to what shop order along with who pulled it and quantity still in the system. Also a return option to also track tools for regrind. Some will stock it for you and you only pay when it's pulled. Another form of inventory for the vendor. At a price of course.
  12. not worth answering, you either don't have a good post or a clue what your doing. you have no clue about ABCXYZ A about X , B about Y, C about Z thats just the written rule but in a post that can be changed.
  13. Allied Spade, standard and flat bottom blades. Parts done!
