    Yes that does look complex, but very impressive. Is the "C" shaped part going to hold a plasma cutter?

    I have to write /program macros to script the many bending function requirements.

    Lots of time being dumped in to this mess.
    With today's added legs and the bender attached on a single pivot point so it floats during bending we had a half decent bend cycle. Need to work on the script getting the tail stock to follow the bending process. Also each process needs tuned.

    But we.... are.... getting... there.

    Well its making bends mostly automatic, semi-auto if you will.
    I ended up turning off the stepper motors and letting the bender drag the carriage while bending.
    Then I update the X-position via the X encoder that tracks it during bending.
    All cause more time than $$$$$.

    Honestly I just tinker, I find my self something I want to achieve then I blow hundreds of hours in Autocad to make it happen. I've sent way move time on building machines than building buggies.
    3DCAD really does allow on to address problems before construction. Everybody should learn at least one.
    I do tons of cad watching tv, managing my little ones, etc. ADD at its finest.

    Yeah i'm the same (but about 10 years behind you). Teaching myself solidworks, HSM express and now preparing myself for a plasma table build. (Next project after the buggy is built.) One day they will sell these machines in Bunnings (Aussie version of harbour freight), and they will teach the software in primary school.
