    I have Enroute plus and generally use my Multicam for cutting sheet goods ,for cabinet parts.I have a contractor that is building a stairway. He wants 7 newel post caps. They would be 8/4 mahogony.Pyramid in shape, and a very shallow cut. The tall point would be 1.75 ht. It would slope down to1" ht on the outside edges. The caps would be square 8.5" by8.5" Without buying special tooling would it be possible to make this sloped cut using EnRoute Plus? I am willing to do some sanding. I have not done any three D stuff yet besides for some signs. Or should I just outsourse the caps?  Thanks for the help. Bill Baynham

Bill,

We are currently running a Multicam with Enroute Pro and we can certainly help you out. We are a custom millwork manufacturer and we are currently on a large mahogany job. We can either run the parts for you or we can run the file and send you the output file for you to run. Should work either way.

Let me know how we can help.

Thanks,

Bill,

Enroute pro allows you to take a hatch pattern and "tip tool path vertically" which would allow you to machine the sloped sides. I'm not sure Plus has that feature. You could be creative and mount the blocks at an angle then surface the material to get your sloped sides or as he suggests outsource it to someone like him or myself.

Let me know how you make out,

Tip Toolpath feature is only on Pro. Fixturing and just surfacing is definitely an option as is just running them on a table or panel saw and then finishing by hand as in the old days. Sometimes the simplest method is still the most efficient. For just 7 pieces anything goes.

Let us know hoe we can help,

Tom in PA
