In this class, students who have taken the basic Tormach class will learn to use advanced features of the machine and Mach3 software as well as the 4th-axis attachment. You will learn how to set up a tool index of multiple tools, increasing your efficiency of machining parts using multiple tools and parts. You will also learn how to set up and manually work the 4th-axis rotary table, opening up the world of 4th-axis machining and workholding solutions.
The 4th-axis attachment allows you to machine on a rotating cylinder, held in the horizontal or vertical position.
Setting up the tool index allows you to change tools quickly, without having to zero your Z.
