downloaded the new DP7 trial version and took a crack at this cut, very fast toolpath generation Lex, faster than it used to be even. Mill is 5 axis but im still getting my head around using the rhinocam copy I have to get it working with that, elese ill taek the lunge and buy the V7.

Hi Lex, yes great finish, the forum only allows one image per post, so i post one per post ;), but below is RAW CAST, in other words, straight of the casting tree, cleaned in acid. very very clean.

finished the silver one for myself, could not bring myself to melt them down, they were cut only to do an article about various manufacturing technologies. soldered a jump ring on and added some chemical oxidising.
