here's the link, enjoy.

make sure to watch all the videos. I have seen this personnel and could not believe what I was seeing most people didn't get it. keep up the good works.

cool. do you refer to imachining


the latest trend in the manufacturing industry? that'd be stunning (at the same time real hard) tom implement ;)

understood, thanks for sharing the link.

I have seen software for roughing that uses some type of sort order to have constant tool engagement not just typical raster type cutting. I'll locate the link and attach it later. it would be worth looking into as, it works very well, reduces run time and tool wear as it stays engaged in material until roughing is complete.

I currently run full three axis cutting but, moving to five or six so I like seeing whats new.

Again, thanks for sharing.

@Wade:This picture shows toolpath points for 2.5 axes spiral roughing on one layer. CAMel an open source CAM initiative is still under development: For 5 axis face milling and a specific machine configuration it already generates the g-code. In this version I tried some experiments with 2.5 axes roughing techniques. In the future it is supposed to generate g-code for roughing, too.


@Michael: Yeah, thanks for letting me know. Just used it and it saved me a lot of other GH blocks :)

is this generating g code, not sure what I'm looking at?

if you review my page you'll see why I ask.

just wondering if you know that there is a contour component in recent versions of GH.
