Hello all, before i start i would like to say i have been looking for the past 2 hours and i am still completely in the dark.
I am a heavily pc orientated kind of person and recently have started plans to start a company making bi cycle components and tools. I am pro efficient at CAD programs Solidworks and Pro engineer. Using these i have drawn up prototypes i would like to make a reality. I was going to approach an engineering firm and give them my designs to make a prototype from ultimately just using these high cost services just for the use of their machines.
It dawned on me and the people i will be working with we could get our own cnc mill. I have been researching and researching but i have not come to a conclusion so i reckoned i would try to benefit from the knowledge and experience of a forum.
What i would like to know is what type of mill eg how many axes would i need to make a hub shell? If needed i can upload images of my early ideas as examples of the type of shapes i would be requiring?
