Location: North Wales Hardware/Software: Denford Orac and Triac on Mach3
Hi all,
Could anybody point me in the right direction.
I need to be able to engrave on the radius of a Gear Shift Knob.
I have a Triac using Mach3. I turned the knob on my Orac and engraved on
a flat surface ok, but would like to try engraving on a spherical surface.
I have downloaded Cambam but don't think this will do it.

Any recommendations welcome.
Thanks,
John

Mastercam
Hi, I know this is a couple of years old but for the benefit of anyone else who might be looking for a solution, I use Mastercam for 3D engraving (and for just about all my CAM needs) but, obviously, it's astronomically expensive. A free option would be HeeksCAD/HeeksCNC, Google it and download. Tutorials available on YouTube.
