I have simply demonstrated a valid reason why Fusion cannot accurately be described as a 'replacement' for gmax / cnc_toolkit for trunnion users.. which is the premise of this thread.Originally Posted by daniellyall
Like it or not... regardless of it's age etc... there is work gmax / cnc_toolkit can complete that Fusion cannot. As you concede... this is likely to remain the case for some considerable time.... which goes to my point earlier in the thread... that gmax / cnc_toolkit will offer benefits to users of 5-axis CNC for some time to come....
From the point of view of creating objects to serve as the source for shapes / toolpaths / machining.. there's not a lot that Fusion can make that gmax can't... Fusion is much more about the application of modern thinking and methods to the design process.... but ultimately.. shaped geometry to provide tool-position / angle is really all that matters.Originally Posted by daniellyall
g-code does not care about the nature of the surface from which it derives tool locations. As long as position is defined in a suitable coordinate system... and any required angle calculations are performed... then the code will be made.... and the cut will execute in much the same way... regardless of the application used to make it...
The reason niether of the new 5-axis methods appeared in my video is very simple.... they were of no assistance to performing the demonstrated task... if this generates a hateful response this is your problem... not mine... grow up son !!!!Originally Posted by daniellyall
I didn't ask for excuses... justifications... or support.... I just pointed out the FACTS....Originally Posted by daniellyall
If you feel I suggested you only "look at vids".... this is you applying that description to yourself.. I spoke in generalities.. and avoided making things personal... There are many who speak of things on the basis of something they've seen or heard.. but have never tried... If you work in Autodesk support, you need to be able to address problems / issues in a calm, rational and polite manner.Originally Posted by daniellyall
