    No moon would be a bad thing from what I understand. The Earth would eventually die. Gravitational forces from the moon are critical in keeping the Earth's core molten and it is this moving core...

    Yeah, that's what I'm learning. Do you have any idea if all Howa 1500 series short actions have the same outside geometry? I've thought of buying a used one at a gun/pawn shop to model off of and...

    Thanks for the reply Kurt....and I frequently don't ask the question as clearly as I should.

  12. Anyone know if cad drawings are available for Howa 1500 series available?

    I'm wanting to design and build myself a chassis for the Howa 1500 short action and barrel combo that Brownells is selling.

    Thanks for the response. You're exactly right. Autodesk actually just contacted me and explained the same thing. (Something I didn't expect!) They also linked this video that explains it as well. ...
  14. HSMWORKS 2020 in Solidworks 2018: Can't Open Closed Contours.

    Ok...maybe I'm missing something obvious, but I can't seem to change a closed contour into an open one so that I can select parts of that contour to machine.

    Seems relatively easy in Fusion 360:...

    That makes sense. I guess the easy test is to load the biggest 3D surfacing path the machine will hold and see if it can keep up. So, if I understand the process correctly, a memory upgrade will...

    Thanks for the replies.

    I couldn't find anything in the manual regarding "locking" the spindle. M19 does "orient" the spindle for tool changes but it does not hold the spindle in a fixed...

    Thanks,
