    Cole2534,

    Is this a simple sketch that is the first thing you are drawing?

    Or by any chance, did you create a sketch off a surface of a body that already exists? Sometimes, I have found that...

    Birddseedd,

    Just play with the settings -- each CAM program has its good points, bad points, and quirks. For the most part, simulation in Fusion 360 is very accurate for me. If the end mill is...

    Don't worry about what you did in the "Design" workspace. You can always orient it in the "Manufacturing" workspace.

    When you make a new setup for machining your part, do NOT select "Model...

    I blew right past the posting date and looked at how many posts he has made. So forget that thing about my post being worth 2 cents... it just dropped below zero. LOL

    Thanks for pointing it out...

    I've used "Half and Half" for drilling copper on manual machines since the 70's. My dad showed me that trick when I was a kid.

  15. Single form thread mills with radius?

    Hi all,

    Curious what people are using for single form thread mills. It "seems" that many manufacturers either grind them to a sharp point, or grind a flat on the tips. Neither seem to last long,...

    Tom,

    Regarding backups...

    I number of years ago, I bought a used 2006 Hass (SMM). When I first powered up the machine and everything was functioning as it should, I aimed my cellphone camera...

    @ricardo_gt,

    Can you elaborate on your interaction with Hermle? I'm curious as to what they are quoting that would be $1M or more?

    I have fairly close ties with Hermle through a previous job,...

    I love the $1.76 part of the story!

    Where were you when I had to clean the sump out of the cylindrical grinder at my dad's business when I was 12 years old! grrrr

    Great idea!

    kustomizer,

    OK... understood now. I'd have to guess that the PD of your 10t gear may be around .160" or so depending on the DP. That means a PD of a possibly just over 1" on the segment gear. ...

    Are you asking for a *milling* cutter?

    I don't understand what you mean by: "¼ gear".

    ItsFlipp,

    Are your pockets large enough that you could try ramping back and forth in a straight line? (I'm assuming you are spiraling down currently).

    I'd agree with Ox on this: small end mill, light finish cuts at a low feed rate.

    Maybe cut a test part, then jog your machine to the center of the bore, attach a dial indicator to the spindle,...

    Well, first off... is the part steel as its "properties" show?

    Are you making this on a 3-axis mill? Do you have probing on the machine?

    Is this a "real" part you need to make, or an exercise...
