    Cool stuff, thanks.

    I don't quite understand how to do the math to figure out how much more rigid one tool is than another. Say .5 em vs 1.0 ?

    Why can't you blow a machine off with air? I hate stupid rules like that. I'm smart enough to run the machines and make parts, but not smart enough to properly blow off a machine?

    I wish the USA had what you're talking about. I wish I had grown up someplace in Europe that could have got me into this trade a lot sooner.

    Seems to me that the tool maker title doesn't mean all that much now days. Machining is such a big field with so many specialties, it's impossible for one guy to be a "tool maker" in all fields.

    flat pattern generation

    I want to "skin" a 3d shape and then apply desired cut lines and then have solid works output the flat pattern shapes. IE Sailboat sails. Is this possible?

    Thanks for your time

    It can't remember what they call it, but they can sell a version of solidworks that doesn't allow you to build assemblies. That may be why it's $2500.

    Surfcam also sells solidworks, if you're...

    Yes, I tested it on my Haas and it works perfectly. Only thing I couldn't do was DNC a large file. Pop in the usb stick and it acts just like a floppy, no difference.

    I remember reading that too and it must be why I can't DNC the 4 meg file I just tested.
