05-05-2010, 08:03 PM
hi i have been looking into getting steel dies made and i have come to the conclusion that i could make the dies on a kx3 if i could get someone to write the program for me as im a novice in 3d but have loads of experience in 2d drawings etc any help or guidence would be greatly appricated thanks

Do you have any drawings/photo's/sketch's that you can post to give us an idea of what you are after.

Do you have a KX3 already? if so what tooling do you have available for it?

i will be getting a set of dies with the outside measuremnets the same but with different inside fonts etc i will post a picture of what i mean. the link is for a company that used to make them but dont anymore. i dont have a kx3 as of yet but my local supplier is going to allow me to use it to see if it will do my job ok. As for the tooling i dont know what tooling i should be using etc thanks in advance Patrick2123
