  1. Re: Tormach TTS toolholder library for Fusion 360

    Custom tool holders can be defined through the tool library. You create a new tool but in the first window where you are asked what type of tool to create you select holder. From there you don't...
  2. Re: 2" face mill does this spped and feed seem right? on pcnc 1100

    HSS or carbide?

    Fwiw I run my superfly (single carbide insert, roughly 2.6" diameter as currently configured) at 2500rpm. I get decent results from 12ipm at .075 DOC but if I want a really nice...

    Re: New Fusion 360 limitations

    Clever. I opted to pay for the software so I don't have need of the feature, nor do the other features present any apparent benefit to me but I do applaud the author's efforts.

    Re: New Fusion 360 limitations

    Interesting. I'm curious what sort of algorithm is being used to determine if a move should be changed to a rapid or left alone.

    Someone does. It's attached to the first post ;)
  6. Re: Tormach TTS toolholder library for Fusion 360

    If you're referring to the sample tormach libraries listed for 1100 and 440/770 starter, those do seem to contain the tool holders that used to be available directly in fusion (knowing that would...
  7. Tormach TTS toolholder library for Fusion 360

    I'm not sure if anyone else has done this but my searches have turned up empty. Many of you may have noticed that along with the new tool library in Fusion 360, all the previously built in tormach...
  8. Re: Convert Non Servo 770m or 1100m to BT30

    I have wondered the same thing. Mechanically and electrically I don't see any reason why the BT30 spindle can't be used without the servo kit. Watching the installation video, the encoder is wired...

    Re: PathPilot 2.6.0 Release

    I have experienced the same behavior as pops. Any time the "Set start at line" doesn't work correctly it has been due to my failure to left click on the line before right clicking. That said, I find...

    Re: PathPilot 2.6.0 Release

    I have the 19" monoprice touchscreen and it's worked fine since day one. That was several PP versions ago.
  11. Re: Whoops! ... Our Mistake! ... We Are So Very Sorry!

    Yup, got a notice about some shear hog inserts in one email. No big deal there. The shocker was that they were sending me another servo kit! I feel a bit bad for Megan in sales. I suspect her whole...
  12. Re: Modified Post enabling Constant Surface Speed for Mill-Turning

    Not a lot of activity in this thread but I'm still making changes to my custom post and some of them might be of interest to the world so I'm going to continue sending them out. If I was doing things...

    Re: New Fusion 360 limitations

    I agree 100%, but arguably, that is the operator/programmer's fault, not the software. I'm not looking to defend autodesk here, i'm still among those who are reluctantly now paying for what was once...

    Re: New Fusion 360 limitations

    From my recollection, the last line is taken verbatim from the email notification so nothing new there. I interpret that bit as meaning, you can manually insert tool change commands while you're...

    Re: Latest mod: Mist collector

    Not the update I had hoped to post but progress has been made. Step-down transformer, off-delay relay, and a pair of 110 panel mount sockets have been installed and wired in. Unfortunately, the...

    Re: "Making" a new controller

    I bought a monoprice 19" that has been working flawlessly since I got it. They're not always easy to find in that size though. The 15 seems to be everywhere and the 17 is frequently a 16:9 aspect...

    Re: Latest mod: Mist collector

    The working theory is that as the air/mist is drawn through the filter, it will come in contact with the aluminum mesh. The mist, be it oil or coolant, should condense out of the air upon contact....

    Re: "Making" a new controller

    That wouldn't surprise me as the failure mode but would be surprising is if it didn't work in general. The keyboard with trackball is a bit more specialized to be sure but ultimately they should all...

    No intention of starting an argument, you make a valid point regarding possible future price increases. However, that same risk applies to any package. Even the top level programs can have price...

    Re: Pathpilot Backlash Compensation

    This has come up in a couple newbie posts but I suppose it's worth asking you veterans of machining, what are your expectations from your tormachs? I can say for my part, the more accurate I can...

    Re: Buying my first CNC (1100M vs 770MX)

    I started with a shear hog, superfly, 3/8 2flute em, 1/4 3 flute em, chamfer mill, and a jobber length drill index (fractional, letter and wire sizes). Over time I have added 1/4 4 flute for steel,...
