chess pieces

Post by glasgowuni » Mon 17 Sep , 2012 10:42 am

Hi I am going to use the pawn chess piece that is already installed in the vr turning program. my question is does the program use a parting off tool in it??

Also do you gave the g codes for the rest of the chess pieces as we don't have a post processor for your software for alphacam

Did you see these ?

Bradders might have the g-code for the chess pieces as well - I'll ask him to post anything onto the above post.
I don't think we have any solid models of chess pieces, but think it'll be worth us taking those profiles and revolving them into 3D models...now that we can easily (and cheaply) print them in black and white ABS on the UP! printer :)
