Thanks Randy.

I am making a few more changes. Hold off on installing the new version until I post again.

With cncs you should be able to specify the diameter at as many points as you want

You just make the cad drawing and the machine will make it,

I don't knew about this particular software, but if The Machine reads standard gcode, programming any taper you can imagine is pretty simple


I'm not attempting to dump on your software By any means I'm just replying to his question


Cnc programming/drafting/machining is my day job

I am finished with this round of software changes. Version 1.0.4 is posted to my web site.

I have started a user mailing list to inform users when new features/fixes are added to the program. If you are a licensed user and did not receive an email from me, please contact me.

Quick question Kelly,

Do you have any new features or add'ons you are working on for a new version? Just curious bud, that's all.

I am not currently working on any CueCut additions. The current version posted on the website is 1.0.5.

In 1.0.5 I added a "repeat back to cut a 2nd stock" function to the straight dowel page. This was requested by a user who uses a rather slow feed rate as a way to save on jogging time. 1.0.5 also has an inch scale added to the shaft taper design screen. I got tired of trying to guess which data point I was looking at in the graph.

I have considered adding a function to vary the spinner/stepper speed for those who use the S command (Unique machines use this I think) based on the diameter of the stock. Ideally, the perfect rpm changes as the diameter of the stock changes, but I don't know how many CueCut users are spinning the stock with the S command via a stepper and I don't know if it would make a significant difference. It might take too much trial an error for each user to figure out the perfect stepper ratio per inch of stock diameter for it to be worth adding.

Along the same lines, I have considered adding the same functionality to the feed rate. If the feed rate was variable based on the stock diameter (user would enter a max and a min feed rate), the feed rate would be slowest at the tip end while cutting a shaft and then gradually increase as the diameter of the shaft increases during the cut. For example, feed rate at the tip end might be 10 ipm but finish at 20 ipm at the joint end, and would gradually increase between the two ends during the cut.

Other than those thoughts, no planned additions to CueCut.

Guys,

Anybody tapering with a CNC based machine needs this software. It does speed up the process from shaft tapering to dowels and handles. Kelly is super helpful and will help you overcome the learning curve.

If you value your time, then this truly is a godsend. Without thinking, I programmed the butt portion to cut towards the small end. When I tore out a point I realized how stupid that was.

It took about 5 mins to rip out 10 new tapers. Once it's dialed in it's extremely repeatable....
