Preview CCAM's Optional Contour Turning Process

Preview Legacy's new optional process for turning a contoured round section.  We used TurboCAD to draw the spindle and then took the coordinates from the drawing and plugged them into CCAM4's new Turning Round Contour Profile process to generate the code.  This technique will open new world of possibilities for turning spindles.  We will create new processes to mill multi-side parts following a contour or add details like contoured flutes or reeds that cut from the side of the part following a contour.  We can also add spiral flutes and any number of possilities all following a contour profile.

This is exactly the process I need for my work! I'm looking forward to this with anticipation.
