Default CAMaster Cobra 508 with ATC and Agg Head

Here are a few pics of a new machine just set up today in Chatanooga, TN

Machine is a CR-508 with a 13 HP HSK spindle. 10 tool positions with aggregate head.
16" Gantry Height, 25 HP Dual Stage Vac Pump. Customer has Aspire and Cut 3D

Will WinCNC run the C-axis? I imagine programming for that aggregate head will be a little complex, since the working radius would change depending on the length of the tool you use in it. . .

Intriguing though. I can think of lots of uses for that!!

WinCNC is a 6 axis controller and has no Issue with the movement of this feature. You are correct that the programming is the trick. You will need MaterCAM or Rhino to pull this off.

Have you worked through the MasterCAM PP yet? A video of your aggregate in action would be awesome.

We have a basic one. Each one has to have it tweaked a bit.

Not an issue Brandon has been trained on MasterCAM I am sure he can help if need be.

That "modern marvel" is a 2012 model, antnee...this is a very old thread. You may want to contact Camaster to see what videos they may have posted for the current Cobra design which is even beefier than what's in Joey's original posting.
