Yet another X-LS chapter. This one about cutting out cabs on CNC router. Much talk on the forum about CNC these days, but I thought y'all might be interested in more detail on the process. Also, this old dog is getting his feet wet on YouTube video...wonders never cease!

And another after "nesting". Nesting is about optimizing material use and minimizing machine movement.
This is a simulation after tool paths have be calculated. Tool paths or vectors are essentially the instructions the machine follows to accomplish desired tasks. Machine is nothing without software to direct it. A kinda new concept for an old analog guy.
And finally my first use of a camera to record video other than by accident. Also my first YouTube video and speaker cabinet cutting on CNC. I muddled through, but am convinced there must be something better than HD Movie Maker PRO
for processing video. It's partly me, I'm sure, but it sure seemed glitchy, and frustrating as a result. Critiques and recommendations appreciated. At this stage, I'm not looking for an all out assault, but rather a competent, easy to implement solution.
I edited this to make more watchable (I hope). Using a different video editor, ShotCut
