Default Turkey Box Call

Guys...
I made a demo video for a guy interested in seeing what a 4th axis can do for a call maker. Turn the sound down, my webcam mike doesn't like cutting noises.

I didn't intend to watch that all the way through, but ended up doing it anyway because I was working through the toolpaths in my head.

What did you use to generate the g-code? It looks like you did a mix of hand coding for the indexing and something like VCarve Pro or Aspire for the pockets, profiles and v-carving.

Really liking the Sidewinder, by the way.

Steve...
And you thought I didn't pay attention to your class! It was all done in VCPro with a few B (my rotary designation) axis commands dropped in at the proper locations.

Glad you like it, I am having fun with it, as it is my first rotary. I will be done testing on it in a month or so and it can be yours!

Gary, care to share some of the code as to where you dropped the axis code in. and how you go about editing the code. Dan Nelson

Dan...
The toolpath is a inside profile of a rectangle. I placed a start node on the left edge at the Y=0 point. Then using a postP that uses the "C" parameter put out the toolpath. (see pic)

I then added a B0 (zero) where the y value was zero, a B7 where Y went positive and a B-7 when the Y went negative. Please note that my machine uses B instead of the CAMaster "A" and your positive/negative may be different than mine.

If you need more than that, you may want to attend one of our "Rotary CAMaster Schools"

Very nicely done.

Even with your warning I managed to wake my 2yr young daughter from her slumber. Whoops... She said the birds were chasing her and screaming.

Seeing it was worth it.

Well, dang it, now you've got me wanting one. And with the Stinger in its new home, I have an empty place in my home shop...kind of like a missing tooth.

What could be better than driving your truck to the next CAMaster school and hauling her home? Win, win. And I get some $ for my next project.

Default Sidewinder project

What ever happened to the Sidewinder?
Is this going to be a future Camaster product?
Are they for sale ?
I would be interested in this product.

Any thoughts?
