    Default New Rotary Jig

    I am watching the video on the new rotary jig and I like it.
    Questions:
    1 - Do you have to have the new designer?
    2- Is there a bundle discount if you buy the 2 together?

    Many Thanks,
    Jim

    Yes, and you need to be running the new version 2.005.

    ALL NEW FEATURES will be added to the LATEST VERSION OF SOFTWARE ONLY.

    2- Is there a bundle discount if you buy the 2 together?
    No.

    Predator as a rotary project. Carved from a 4x4. Imported with the STL importer.

    I forgot another question, can you import a 3d stl file ( having stl importer)
    and unwrap or carve it as is

    Yes you can. There is a new option in the STL importer for rotary that creates a 4.25" cylinder for you to position the piece you want to import.

    So I wouldn't have to unwrap my file to carve it

    Since it uses metal rollers, I would say it requires the rubber belts too.
    (looks like a belt drive to the screw chuck that touches the rubber traction belts)

    Thus you need:
    designer 2.005
    the rotary jig and software
    rubber belts
    long carving bit

    Anything else required if purchasing the rotary jig?

    Using Designer 1.187, STL importer, Center line, conforming vectors, scanning probe/PE, and the ROCK chuck.
