    Is there anyone out there making custom pipes that is using a cnc machine of some sort? If so, what you are using for drawing software and cnc machine?

    Re: cnc pipe makers

    Are you talking about smoking pipes or plumbing pipes? Tobacco pipes or pot pipes? There are lots of new designs being tried out in the cannabis industry, if that's what you mean; everything from pen-type e-cig battery and cartridge systems to glass pipes made for "waxes" and "shatters". I don't know too much about them, but some customers are using Taig mills to build parts for advanced vaping machines.

    But if you're looking to make fancy briar tobacco pipes, I can definitely help with that.

    If you want to make sculptural designs and carve them in briar, I'd suggest Geomagic Sculpt software along with the Touch haptic arm for making the models. It's far and away the best system for organic modeling, giving you the ability to actually feel the model as you're working on it. Once you've got a model, DeskProto will turn it into tool paths that a Taig CNC mill with a 4th axis accessory can carve for you. Check out my web site for more info on all these products.

    I used to smoke a pipe pretty much all the time after retirement but gave it up pretty soon cause my lounges aren't good even without smoking tobacco all the time. It may sound ridiculous but I am into vaping now. My son showed me how the whole thing works and I decided to try because smoking is the only habit that I keep from being 20yo or so and now it's just impossible to give it up completely. So now I know pretty much everything about all those vaping devices, e-liquids, online stores like this one and it's not only a habit now, it's also a hobby I'd say.
