How to enter a Ball Nose in G-Wizard?

0

Is there a default list of tools/bits to start with?

I noticed end mills with HSS and Carbide are in the drop down list but none show for bull nose.

Also how can I get the software to remember where I was last time? I have to re-enter my tool I am working with from scratch….which brought me here tonight. The feeds and speeds I got before don’t give me the same results now. I took a picture of the Gwizard results to make sure I had the info correct as I setup VCarve Pro but going back to it today I cant get GWizard to come to the same conclusion. That makes it tough for a beginner.

And one last question.

I saw a picture of the Shapeoko 3 (SO3) on your website today. That’s great. I have an SO3 also and would like to know how people who have had success using Gwizard  what settings they have for the SO3. That would be a great help.

JBC, a ballnose is one of the variants of an End Mill.  So, pick the End Mill type and then you change the Tip Type to a Ballnose.  This is done either by pressing the Geometry button in the current version as I write this, or you will see the Tip Choices on the new integrated Tool Menu in later versions.

There are a couple of ways you can save some or all of the parameters.  The Cut KB (Cut Knowledge Base) is a way to save all of your interesting cuts for future reference.  You can also save many parameters about a tool by creating a Tool Crib entry.

We don’t have an SO3 profile yet.  Hopefully someone can comment here on settings, but I also recommend the SO3 forums.

Best,

BW
