Can’t Remember How to Square Up Material Stock ready for CNC ?
I sometimes have to dig deep in the odds and ends heap of rough bits of materials to use on a project. This results in having to square up the find so it can be easily programmed into Fusion CAM. I always have to scratch my head on the process which is well documented by Tom Lipton and This Old Tony among others. What I needed was something to pin on the wall to remind me.
The result of this frustration is a write up and a graphic which you may find useful. Here is a screenshot and the link below it provides both this document and the write up in a ZIP file.
Hope that helps and if it isn’t well explained let me know and if it was useful also let me know.
