Now Available: Downloadable Solid Model Library

By popular request, we’ve created a library with downloadable solid models of some of our accessories and fixtures.  You can download these models in both .IGES and .STEP formats.

You can bring these models into SprutCAM or IronCAD, or any other CAD/CAM system you might have.  Right now, we have fixture plates, vises, and the 5C Collet Fixture, but we plan to add more if requested.  Something else you’d like to see that’s not currently included?  Let us know and we’ll see what we can do.

PS: Tormach Lathe Insider Issue #2  Newsletter goes out tomorrow.  Not on the Lathe Insider List yet? Signup here for exclusive previews of our new slant bed lathe.

    I would love a solid model of the actual table. I pulled the DXF from the document showing why the 5″ VISE fits better but it isn’t scaled correctly and when I scale it there appear to be errors. A 1:1 DXF or solid would be great!

    The 5″ CNC vise looks fantastic; GREAT JOB!

    I opened it in MC and SW and both come through with three levels: Key for fixed block, moving block, and base with fixed block and both jaws on the same level. Would it be possible to upload it with the jaws on a separate level?

    This would allow moving the jaw (in cam or cad) to hold the work piece in without having to break everything apart, separate them and create new solids. Also it will make it easier for anyone to model in soft jaws or the new replacement hard jaws I just received from Tormach which are a completely different size.

    The new jaws are 1/8″ narrower than the vise and almost a full inch thick so my vises can no longer hold 4″ stock like the model shows.
