    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?

As for the tooling i dont know what tooling i should be using etc thanks in advance PatrickClick image for larger version.
