Hello to all of you equally.
Its my first post here, so straight to the point. I have been lurking here for a while to find more user reviews and opinions about this great looking machine. Reason why im still waiting before buying one (money of course) is that i would like to see or hear how have you succeeded to make non symmetrical tubes, like slightly bent tubes (bicycle frame tubes for example) or conical tubes, or any else form. Is it possible with this machine ?
Another thing i have been thinking is the material for mandrels, for straight tubes is easy, plastic or metal pipes i assume. But for more complicated forms, for example if i shape a tube from some rigid foam, would that work ?
I have quite a bit experience with carbon fiber, and the tube making has been the most difficult part to succeed well, this machine would be great help if it can do more complex shapes.
I do not have any experience on g-code.
