Is there any interest in having some conversations and possible demonstrations of the Rotary aspects of CNC work, at this years Vectric camp, being held at Jim McGrew’s location.
April 26th-28th
Columbia, SC

Michael, I'll say "yes" to your question...while it's not something I'd get involved in for some time after I have my machine, it is intriguing, especially as I turn wood "conventionally" already. There may be others who are looking for something to differentiate in their markets and the rotary aspect could fit that bill. But I'm barely a "newbie", so what do I know? :)

Michael,
I will answer yes for my son and I. I am going to have the registration info in to Jim by week end. We have yet to do any turning with our CNC as we have been so consumed with incorporating the unit into all the other facets of our operation. I intend to begin learning that curve by 2nd qtr this year so your timing is impeccable!

Looking forward to meeting you guys!

Michael, I would be very interested in learning all about the rotary. I have a CamMaster Stinger 2 and haven't used the rotary yet because I haven't been able to get a lot of good information on it. I've seen them in action and see other software that can produce cut paths for the rotary but never done anything with aspire. I would really be interested to see if there is a way to have the rotary spinning constantly and have the router head move up and down the piece while it is spinning. What I do know (which is very little) is that Aspire's G-Code has it so that the router head moves down the piece and then the piece rotates slightly and then it makes another pass....which in my opinion is very very slow. Thanks!

Ramey

Ramey,
If for some reason you cant make the Aspire camp, Gary Campbell has an excellent one on one class over the phone that will get you going on the rotary lathe. The class was just what I needed to get my feet wet. Very worthwhile. Send Gary a pm for the details...assuming you dont go to the camp...and shoot, even if you do its probably still worth the time!
