    Prices will be all over the map. The rigger I use out of Reading PA would be a couple grand if it was within an hour of them. 10K is overpriced IMO unless the rigger is coming from the other side of...

    You do realize aluminum is the most abundant metal on earth and the main contributing factor to cost is the energy used to process it, right?

    Someone who is not experienced with something should not be writing any operational procedures, providing training or teaching in any way for that piece of equipment....

    That's kind of what I was getting at/thinking. I have a couple friends with trucking companies so one trip at 102" wide with a step deck is reasonable. Start adding in oversize permits and or...

    If the geometry selection was outputting 1 arc then the sketch selection will do the same as there is no way the code can get any more simple. Where selecting sketches should help is when the...

    Try selecting geometry and posting code, then select a sketch and post the code and compare.

    I just tried opening fusion to give it a try and it won't run unless I update it by downloading the...

    It's been a while since I've touched a 3 or used G92. Maybe you have to hit reset to update the display

    When buying a used machine many people will check backlash with an indicator, but few check the control backlash values against the factory parameters

    I would just punch it into MDI but it doesn't really matter.

    G92 will change the machines current displayed location to whatever you enter in that block.

    If you send the machine home and enter...

    That's pretty much what I was trying to get at. I believe most solids and surfaces are NURBS where sketch's are actual straight lines and arcs

    It's been a while but I seem to remember being able to select the edge of the solid with contour which is not what you want. You want to hide the solid and make the sketch itself visible and select...

    If it were me I would be happy with 3 tenths on that machine and bore anything that needs to be held tighter.

    As far as I am concerned anyone is welcome provided they conduct themselves in a professional manner and attempt to stay focused.

    The difference is threads like this will die a crib death :eek:

    The fact that this thread is still open is crazy and speaks volumes as to what has happened to this place. There is still a wealth of knowledge here and likely always will be but the static has...
