Surfacing spoil board


On the Mac you only have to hold down the key of the accented letter which you want and then press the number displayed in the selection box which appears on screen after you have held the key down for about 1 second.

In fact, you can hold the key down and when the selection box appears you can let the key go before making a number choice. This is because the selection box stays on screen until after the number is pressed.

et voilà! c’est ça, c’est tout. :wink:


I use fusion, and the basic 2D facing operation. It takes some fiddling to get it to work on our machine with the interior gantry and a waste board that uses most of the travel up, especially with a large cutter. But you should be able to get it to work if you play with pass extension, stock offset ect. Your mileage will very, based on the size of your surfacing bit and how big your waste board is. Or, just create a sketch on your waste board model, setup the vectors however you wish, taking into account the surfacing mill and step over. Then use Trace. Order the cuts however you wish.

Oooo :slight_smile: Middle part is the final surfacing after tramming the spindle head :slight_smile: Check out the difference from the previous on the left/right!

That said, the Pro is pretty deadly right out of the box! Just wanted to dial it in a hair more.
