    I don't have time right now to write out a long response to try to respond to everybody who has posted here since my last post, but I attached a few pictures of the bases being machined. We also recently got the remaining wooden patterns finished for the headstocks and vertical milling columns. Since 4 out of 5 of the linear axes are machined directly into the cross base, this new cast iron design gets rid of most of the alignment procedures necessary and is as flat and square as the jig bore that machines it.


    I'll try to explain more details of the software soon, but I talked to the investor group recently and we are considering just acquiring one of the companies that already has mill-turn CAM software, since we need to accelerate our schedule and the 3d graphics engine we were using in our current software version is outdated. Our new machines will include a touchscreen PC with the easy to use CAM software already installed and customized for the SwissMak.

    We're getting the Kickstarter stuff done with forward and backward compatibility in mind, the control board supplier is still under lockdown in the UK and their resellers don't have enough boards in stock. So we have to develop with the few boards we bought before the pandemic started. We're trying to keep most of our production in Taiwan now because the rest of the world is so unreliable.


    And 3t3d, that link is reassuring to me. I expect to finish and ship the Kickstarter units in the next few months without having ever murdered anyone with a submarine hatch bonk.
    Your updates are appreciated, keep at it, and don't give up!!!

    Just blame it on someone else - like the entire rest of the World. And everything that happens in it.

    Sounds fair.







    The Mitsui looks nice.

    * The more diplomatic way of saying that would be "Seems like we would like to keep production in Taiwan as I very much like the way they go about things... Seems like a good fit so far, early days , but looks promising. "

    - Not, - the rest of the world is an unmitigated sh*t show now having removed myself from it by installing myself in Taiwan. Especially given how reliable I was before (impeccably so).

    (cough cough)

    Maybe someone else in your organization should handle the PR etc. ? I'm not 100% sure you are doing yourself any favors here ?

    I talked to my investor group and we're considering just acquiring one of the COVID-19 vaccine makers so that we don't get shut down again.

    You're wayyyyyy late to that party. Autodesk already bought everyone. I suppose you could buy Autodesk. When you do, we'll have a few suggestions for you over in the CAD/CAM forum.

    A. Fire all the pushy salesmen....
    B. Kill AutoCad for good.
    C. Get rid of the salesmen.
    D. Make Fusion local instead of cloud-based.
    E. Eliminate the sales team.
    F. Board it up and make all your money selling Swiss-Maks.

    Why do you keep coming here and not updating your Kickstarter page? That reeks of evolving into a con man. I will tell you why, it is because this website is generating a lot of bad press, and you are trying your darnedest to make up excuses and lies to counteract it. Did you ever take a career aptitude test when you were younger? If you did it would have screamed to go into politics, considering that you lie and make excuses with the greatest of ease, to the point of believing your own lies, makes you a natural politician in this country.

    Some sense there if the money available
    Putting blame on an old 3D graphics engine makes not a lot of sense to me.
    Inside Cam software will not care about 3D screen display at all. If this a concern employ a game developer.
    Why am I thinking window dressing rather than hard CAD/CAM?

    I do hope this works but you are taking a road of question and I have to wonder about real world advice being sold to you.

    Hey Generic, remember that original, pre-Kickstarter thread where you talked about how great aluminum was going to be for a machine base, going on and on about the properties of materials, and everyone told you to use cast iron? And now two years later you made the shocking discovery that cast iron actually IS a tiny bit better than aluminum when it comes to machine tool frames? Maybe, just maybe, the collected experience is going to be right again on CAM? Just a thought...
