    Silhouette Boundary

    Love it thanks. These characters are just a part number basically showing where they want the graving. I'm going to look into the simplified font sounds like something id like to use.

    Silhouette Boundary

    Good morning, I'm am familiarizing myself with cleaning up my model. Home > analyze> check model definitely have problems but all lye within my engraving and u can see very clearly that lines don't meet up. Thinking I can remove the engraving to fix. Help said attempt to heal solid when opening option. model pre> simplify solid> optimize show issues with engraving also. I can keep choosing this option and I get different numbers of errors. Do I need to go in and fix these issues and then run this feature again till I get zero or should I approach in a different fashion? Thanks for everyone's help this forum has proven to be a very valuable tool for my toolbox I wish I used more frequently years ago.

    Hello everyone hope all is well. I am having a hard time getting what i am looking for. When grab my solid for a silh. boun. I'm not getting an exact replica of my boundary. I'm getting broken arcs with different rads by a couple of thou. Its not that big of a deal in this application but i mill sprockets also where the rad on the teeth are very critical. Shutter.ZIP

    I was acually impressed wit rigidity. This big block when mounted was very ridged. In vertical position with indicator on the part i only saw .002 when pushing and pullin on it. I ran a 2 inch 4 flute facemill at .2 depth of cut .005 per tooth at 10000 rmps (200 ipm)and it loved it. My plan was to leave stock rails on left and right side with tabs that get cut off. But having to do the work on the front end first while rigid and working bk was a challenge for me.

    Well after almost a full week of learning and trying new things, the money makers want parts faster. I'm now going to run in 2 vertical machines op1 an 2 style 2 parts each. Convex side 1st with 4 work holes (1/4-20s) in the corners and .125 pin holes at the top of arc to locate on op 2. Thinking ill dish out an extra peace of stock so op 1 will sit rt in and off to the races (hopefully). I'm going to apply the toolpaths we discussed so id like to thank everyone for the pointer and hope to here from you in the future. Either way I had a lot of fun trying to make the five axis go. Ill get better over time ive got 25 years left so that should be plenty of time

    This morning I roughed out the fines on the concave side of my part that I posted. Didn't really car for it, but it made it. I used a dynamic Opti rest rough off my stock model. I used a 3/16 .02 bull endmill. The dynamic motion ate me alive. I would like to travel down thru there with 100 engagement depth of cut style. Any recommendation on toolpaths or different ways to use the one I am.

    That just all soun That just all sounds insane. I imagine over time and constant improvement it is the destination. I've been machining and playing with mills for 15 years , mainly vertical 2d applications. The last 3 to 4 have been pushing into 3d toolpaths. Just this past march boss man purchased an Okuma Mu5000v, being the only mill guy in the shop she's all mine.
