    Once again digging up this old thread... I recently moved my machine across the shop, and naturally I checked everything after the move to make sure it was in spec. Unsurprisingly it got a bit out of...

    Another time saving method changing rapids to be a bit faster, and looking carefully at the travel moves. Those are pretty simple to see visually in Vectric, but the one that people overlook a lot is...

    I use those same bits and I really like them. Do one pass like you're doing now, but leave an onion skin and make the part about .005 larger (you can do this in Aspire). For the last pass come in the...

    Talk to me about workflow!

    Hey everyone, I'm working on building some software that will let you go from an idea (CAD drawing) to cutting parts a lot faster (at least in theory!)

    That's an incorrect interpretation of how it works Chuck, the faceted stuff is just there for easy control points, measuring, etc. Once you smooth it out you get some nice smooth geometry.

    I did this one on an Ultimaker with a larger nozzle and it was all done in around 11 hours for all of the parts. I could probably shave an hour off of that.. but that still qualifies as a long time :)
