Cut3D is a dedicated toolpath engine for CNC machining 3D models that have been designed using a 3D CAD or Graphics design product such as AutoCAD, Rhino3D, 3D Studio etc. or scanned using a laser or touch probe device. Cut3D's exceptionally easy-to-use ''wizard'' interface leads you step-by-step through the process of loading a model, setting the size, interactively placing tabs to hold the job in place, calculating single-, double- or four-sided roughing and finishing toolpaths, previewing the results and finally saving the CNC code to run on your machine. It is a great solution for cutting 3D on your CNC if you do not require Aspire’s modeling and layout tools. Cut3D can also be used with Cut2D or VCarve Pro, to combine 3D with 2D or 2.5D toolpaths. 3D Models that are too large or thick to machine because of gantry height, cutter length or limited material thickness can be 'Sliced' into separate pieces. Each slice can then be machined and the complete job assembled. Cut3D includes powerful import filters that work with most of the industry standard mesh file formats. 3D CAD and Graphics Design software packages will typically include standard options for saving 3D models in at least one of the file formats supported by Cut3D. The commonly used design software products are: Rhino3D3D StudioAutoCADBobcadProEngineerSolid WorksSolidEdgeSilo The internet is a very useful source for 3D models with many web sites offering 3D clipart pieces. Many of these also offer Free models that can be used to test whether they work with Cut3D.
The Grr-Ripper Gravity Heel Kit provides a positive hook that grips the end of your board, ideal when you need additional support for feeding hard or heavy stock through your table saw, bandsaw or router table. The heel drops down automatically, aided only by gravity, and retracts when placed in the middle of the board. This means there's no need to remove it or adjust it when it's not needed. The Gravity Heel can also be adjusted laterally to provide backup support when you wish to prevent grain blowout of any kind. Simply saw through the heel to provide zero-clearance support. Five sacrificial heels are included, plus two heel spacers and mounting hardware. Fully adjustable for stock thicknesses from 0-1''Fits all existing Grr-Ripper push blocksEasy to use with two push blocks and the leapfrog method; heels grab the tail end of your board and automatically retract mid-boardIncreases control and stability when feeding long or short stock-provides extra support to help feed stock and prevent blow out
The CNC Shark Touch Probe attaches to the router in any CNC Shark Routing System to trace objects down to 0.001" detail allowing the user to import image data for replicating objects, shapes and patterns. Simply program the Shark to operate at the same detail level as the Touch Probe scan to reproduce the object later. Works well for replicating basic shapes for carvings or reproducing damaged areas on antiques or other irreplaceable items. Requires Cut 3D Software or similar software to be used with the CNC Shark models. Made in the USA. NOTE: To avoid accidents or injury, always be sure to unplug the router prior to attaching the Touch Probe. Touch Probe is compatible with the following machines: CNC Shark Routing System CNC Shark Pro Plus Routing System CNC Shark HD 2.0 Routing System The probe does not work with the 54111 CNC PiranhaIntroducing CNCSharkTalk.com, a new website presented by Rockler where CNC Shark users can chat together, watch how-to videos, ask questions, learn from each other and even show off their CNC Shark projects.
These heavy-duty, state-of-the-craft cutters produce perfect tenons with 60° tapered shoulders for the sturdiest-possible log furniture construction. The funnel shaped, self-centering design ensures flawlessly shaped tenons, and dual precision-ground blades cut twice as fast as single blade models and stay sharp longer. Plus, as part of the cutters' exclusive "IN-SIGHT" visual measurement system, slots along the shaft combine with radial grooves at 1/2" intervals to let you to see your progress and measure tenon length while you cut. Body is CNC machined from aircraft aluminum for maximum strength and minimum weight. Available in three sizes (1", 1-1/2", and 2") corresponding to the diameter tenon that each will cut.
