    That is pretty damned neat. A far cry from the CNC machines I struggled with years ago!

    I think they used to make the S-Class Mercedes like that too.... :)

    It's machined out of aluminium, not cheese.

    Impressive stuff, but not much use for that unless Robocop wants to go downhilling.

    More fun when CNC programs go wrong though.

    Nice vid.

    Our CNCs often get used for customer demos by DMG. A few years back we had an excess of little Elle McPherson torsos scattered around the building! Quite shapely they were too! But there was evidence of tool chatter around the camal-toe region. Not as complex as that lid though (although we've had a couple of customer parts tht have come close).

    Despite not working on them personally, I could stand and watch them hork out material for hours if I had the time.
    How would I write my own epitaph? With a crayon - I'm not allowed anything I can sharpen to a sustainable point.

    i chose to be a machinist as my class one trade and always loved programing cnc (but not as much as i enjoyed regular milling and turning) i reckon my instructors would have wet their pants at that video.
