Not much CamBam going on.. as i turned the bezels for the cases..



here's a case with a bezel beside it..



and here's a bezel pressed on the case.. still not rounded off.. will do that manually, turning freehand on the watchmakers lathe.

Oh.. Wait up!.. there has been CamBamming in the last few days..




Milling the outer contour for the buckles.



and 3D profiling them..



so whe have this.. now to flip the part over, and do the bottom.



Which leads to this result..



and then.. after a few strokes with a fretsaw, calm and easy strokes, as Titanium is quite hard, and you can wear a blade down in mere millimeters if you go to fast..

I've already startef finishing the Buckles, and i learnt a lesson here.. i should have added an extra profiling MOp on the top, for get a smooth surface on the inside of the "Blade", i managed to smooth them though, but it took some time and elbow-grease..

Something important has happened.. i have made my first CAMBAM generated Turning program..

Because of the complex contour with 4 radii which had to be machined in a single pass to get them right.. i spent a couple of hours figuring out how to make a lathe program with CAMBAM and i succeeded..
i made 4 MOps in total, 1 roughing, and 3 finishing passes, with 0.1, 0.05 and 0 mm roughing stock..



Final Pass.. smooth as a babies bottom.. Smiley



and the fruits of labour.. a finished caseback.. as far as turning is concerned.. tomorrow: Drilling the holes for the screws.

I do have some "suggestions" for the Lathe functionality.. but i will post about that in the feature request forum.. for now it is working fine.. but it "needs" some tweaks in my opinion..

I would love to see CamBam support 'Mill with Part in Spindle as a Lathe'. We have a toolpost mounted to the table and lathe chucks mounted on the spindle and have to do a lot of editing to make it work. We've been turning 12" gasket molds and small parts this way with great success.
