    Am I the only one who likes the background editor? No mentions yet?

    I haven't used Fusion myself, but from reading all the posts on here about it, this sums up my opinion of it.


    Seems to me that's the point of it being so cheap/free? So they can get more users...

    I've been trying some here and there. Mixed results.

    IMO works okay in steels, although I haven't done a lot yet. Worked fine with the same speeds I run solid carbide.

    In 304 SST, I've had poor...

    Seems silly you couldn't make edits.

    Hate to admit it, but was watching one of NYC CNC's videos about getting his new UMC750 going and showed some clips from Camplete. Looked like it showed the G...

    I'd imagine you'd get quite a bit of twist on the Y-axis trying to do anything off center of the table. Could extend the lower trucks on y-gantry further downward to combat twist. (Or just use a...

    So if somebody gets hurt by YOUR machine, because you outsourced the parts instead of making them yourself you don't have anything to worry about? Makes sense.

    So a bit off topic... (kinda not really since you brought it up!) I forgot they had made a video to check spindle orient. That's a good one to remember, especially after a minor crash.

    Machinability of 304 plate can vary quite a bit.

    We do a lot of sheetmetal (many parts in this thickness range) and some of them require machining. There's one job that repeats every so often and...

    You can program and cut past the table limit...

    but anyway

    There's an interesting little file named Table.ini in C:\Program Files (x86)\Flow International\FlowCUT 7\System

    first few lines:

    Made myself a couple of triple Ø1" holders on a slow day. They aren't as easy or quick to change out as singles if you want to change drill/tap sizes, but they do save space.

    Plain bronze bearing works fine on mine. Split clamp to keep it relatively snug and close fitting.

    Can you reset A-axis with G92?

    Something like:
    <retract>
    G92 A[360.*[[#5044/360.]-FIX[#5044/360.]]]
    <back to next cut>

    A-axis mirroring didn't do anything?

    What do you mean by that? The engraving end result was the same? Or it didn't change rotation directions?

    Never had gouging issues engraving part numbers on round stuff. Just as clean results as if engraving flat stuff. This is all on "throw away" Haas machines & rotaries or C-axis lathes. But I guess...
