The ‘original’ plastic Bakelite would work well.

I don't know.  That a lot of milk to waste.  LOL. 

Just got an email from Eric at CraftyCNC.  He's still around.

I just tried your file with the last Cambam Version (it's 1.14.3 not 1.14.4) and I get exactly the same result that with the previous version (1.14.2) , no pb with CutViewer the simulation works without complain.

I also use the same post processor (Mach3-CutViewer-tools)

I attach the Gcode that I obtain with 1.14.3

If you want POOR man's approach: a blank tank with the object in it, then filled up mm at a time with milk, photographing each layer as you go.  Scale each image back to a square if there is depth distortion.  Then your standard vectorizing program on each layer.

His website is still up and emails to his email address do not bounce, so I suspect its a grey area.  I can still download the plug-in and the manual from his website.  I just have received no response to a request for a license file invoice.

Heh!  If he's _actually_ out of business, then a 'purloined' copy of the plugin would be fair game.

And to be sure, I'm pretty careful about copyright infringements, because I have to pursue them all the time against illegal copies/online scans of my book.  But once a company declares (or shows) that they're no-longer selling it nor engaging in the active licensing of it, then by US copyright law, it becomes a public-domain item.  Copyrights are only 'effective' if one pursues infringement.  US copyright law provides NO penalties for violating one... it only gives the author the right to pursue such violations.

I don't mean by that to encourage copyright violations.  But I know the rules.  If he's 'out', he's 'out', and his prior works are fair game.  MOST especially because purchasers no longer have any support.

Probe-It is a neat looking wizard for Mach 3.  I have looked at it before.  I don't know how well it will work for thin templates, but it might.  I do have a pretty small ruby tipped probe.  The problems is that Eric has not responded to a request for an invoice and license file.  Otherwise the wizard is very limited.  I did a search on Ebay and do not see his crafts listed for sale, and a quick check of CNC Zone and Mach Support Forums shows he has not been active for 5 or 6 months.

Acetals will 'flow' with time.

Bob, there are some "machinable ceramics" available at places like MSC.  You might investigate those.
