    Here's another can of worms....

    First solution to any problem like this is of course to get the CAM post to generate the right code.

    :scratchchin:

    OK, the AFM process won't work because in at least one state, the "mold" is closed on one end. (It will get rammed full, then have that end removed, and then attempt to extrude the...

    best way to speed up mold polishing

    I am making "molds" and perhaps also "extrusion tools" - but for a material that is sort of cross between putty and cement.

    On Simplicity - well, single cell organisms are much simpler than say Trees, let alone people. Yet there are niches where more complicated beings thrive (happily for us...)

    Single tool boring heads can be used for for outside turning (you need a reversed boring bar, no big thing) Standard boring heads for mills are sometimes two headed - usually for speed I think?

    For what it's worth, Titan's instagram has a post explaining some of this - in particular he outright admits that the tool holder is "too big" - something about needing it to get "air through".
