    Not on topic, but this reminds me of my wife's birthday quite a while ago, before we were married. She wanted a copy of Machinery's Handbook, so I bought it for her. She was happy, but my now...

    Yeah, no sane lawyer at Haas would allow that, nor would any sane school or college buy one if it did.

    I think making a better machine would be counterproductive for them, for a number of reasons:

    1) A school can buy a minimill education version for $21k if the goal is producing machined parts and...

    I don't agree, it's a different market than the hobbyist market. This has a few things going for it:

    1) fully enclosed

    What happens if the mark isn't continuous in the direction of rolling, and is instead made up of dots or transverse lines. My guess is that regular stainless is more ductile than the marked...

    I assume this is a fiber laser for direct metal marking without spray. What type of mark are you doing? Are you actually etching, or just doing carbon development (some laser companies confusingly...

    I think we usually used Nelson for Seattle-Portland runs. Since it sounds like you have a little bit of time, it might be worth seeing if they can fit you in on a northbound deadhead run. It won't be...

    With regards to vgroup=XY, it does cut correctly in 2D. You just have 1 feedrate for all moves that are involve X and Y. I haven't played around with what happens when you have a move in XYZ. At this...

    I did that on a very similar program. It does keep track of XY and Z feedrates separately.
