Thanks Armando!

Now... to figure out exactly how to work it.  It looks so cool, but can these be machined?...

-Brian
They sure can! Here is a link to some pics of some knobs I cut. The curved top surface was generated using the script. http://www.cambam.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=395.msg2449#msg2449

Hi Brian

In attached a tutorial visual basic script.
The commands for CamBam see other examples in forum.
The Andy (10Bulls) could provide a list of commands to script.

Good luck.

Sure it can... Here is a pendulum head(half of it) for my wooden clock that I'm machining.

Yes these can be machined.  I haven't used this yet but I saw the parabolic mirror that Evan machined from aluminum using this addon.  He previewed it on the Home Shop Machinist forum where he's the local resident guru genius.  I believe the mirror he made is currently in use in one of his telescopes and he's been posting some incredible pictures resulting from that effort.  I'd post the link but I don't have it handy.  The HSM website is www.homeshopmachinist.net if anybody's interested and you can do a search under Evan.  Be prepared though, he's only got close to 30,000 posts to date.  Hope he doesn't mind me tooting his horn.

Thanks for showing your results using Evan's script.  I'm definitely inspired now!

If you have any questions just sign up at Home Shop Machinist BBS and send me a PM.

Sorry, but I don't have enough time to spend much time on other forums. I am working on an update to this script to give it a proper GUI one of these days.

Here is an updated version that will create a mesh surface on all shapes.

http://vts.bc.ca/misc/Spiral PollyGone v1.9.vbx

I have updated the links to the other versions. As usual, rename the extension to .vbs

Evan.
Can you check that this is working as expected as I'm getting some strange results? It's also showing as v1.8 at the top left of the screen.
Thanks for this.


Martin.

There are some quirks in the code. Not really bugs since it is a matter of what you expect it to do. I will check the version but most likely I forgot to alter the version number. I have quite a few later versions too that I have been working on that do more fancy stuff like mesh spheres and other solids. The code does not implement any culling of lines so stray lines will show up with different shapes as the vectors make steps to other Z surfaces.
