SkyfireCNC has recently come out with a harmonic drive 4th/5th axis device, and I suspect it's reasonably inexpensive compared to big-name stuff.

Yeah, if it doesn't take two years for it to arrive. :lol:

Rut Roh...

Someone's read the CNCZone Thread Of Doom... ;)

There are a half dozen people posting on YouToob with actual, working SkyFire machines, having received them within the past 18 months or so. Not that I'd send them any money until I see more evidence, but I'm hopeful - my Makini 1610L is the predecessor to the bigger SkyFire mill and having a source of parts would be nice. If I could buy an ATC that mostly works out of the box with my machine instead of building one from scratch, I'd be pretty happy.

Good evening @spumco,

Thank you for your detailed answer, it is full of very informative points for me. I will need to get more familiar with the CAM features in 360 Fusion, just had a quick look until now. So many things to learn ! And still find some time to build the damned beast ;)
