Once you start rotating an axis the CAM has to be sort of self aware so it doesn’t hit itself.That is what I am getting at. The CAM is difficult, but not impossible, just a lot more feeds and speed to dial in, but only available on really high eng CAM, fusion just released it extra axis capabilities but that might have just been a rotating axis.

On the machine side of it, you multiply the rigidity needed, that is easy enough to deal with…..but then you also need rigidity in multiple directions. Imagine adding 2 large servos to the end of the z axis and mounting one servo on the end of the other 90 degrees offset and then putting the dewalt on the end of that.

Awesome, it does exist but without software for it developing hardware isn’t worth it. A $500 router with a $8000 software package.
