I'm hoping you plan to video the rotor being cut and at least post a portion of it.

Steve-

How are you planning to do the Nitrous on the Demon?  I see the plate and solenoids on the real one. ;)

Yikes! 

You are the man.  Blown and sprayed Demon.

I hear the 1/5 scale forging press for the piston blanks, crank and rods now!

I just simulated the cut and the current program should be about 3 hours so I might try one after work tomorrow.

I'm going to cut one of the rotors in about 10 minutes. Will have an update around 8:30EST

All went well with the first piece. In this extremely poor quality video you can see the blank has been rough cut and the profile of the lobe is getting cut into the blank. The profile gets cut and then the  cutter steps over 3 thousands and cuts again. The cutter walks all the way down the length of the piece. The part is rotated 120 degrees and the same program is used 2 more times.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wF3fiEoAVKA" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wF3fiEoAVKA</a>


After 2 runs




After all 3 runs





Then the blank gets rotated 60 degrees and this program is run 3 times every 120 degrees. This one works the same way and cleans out the valleys.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhOgIGKxnC0" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhOgIGKxnC0</a>














If all goes well I hope to clean up, setup the second blank, and get it indicated in and ready to cut for friday.
