Tired of getting a warning in Fusion360 when you set RPM to 0 for a tool (like a drag engraver)?

2017 "Budget" CAD / Dev Laptop comparison
A recent post by a member of the Tormach Operators group on Facebook asked for help in locating a laptop that could run Fusion 360, in the $500-$1,000 USD price range.

Ultimate Dev Workstation 2012
Being that my dev machine hadn’t been re-imaged in over a year or so, I was starting to have some issues with the current Win7 x64 image that I had on the machine I built in 2009. Since I was going to have to do a reinstall of the OS, I figured now was a good […]

Ultimate Developer Workstation 2009
Last fall, I put together a NewEgg wishlist for a new 64 bit machine that I built. I tweeted about it, but evidently didn’t make a blog post. The main purpose of this machine is to run Server 2008 in Workstation mode with IIS7 and SQL 2008. The specs are as follows: Intel Core 2 […]
Reflections on the past few weeks – Thoughts on a good friend injured and a few friends who passed.
It’s been a tough month – first I find out a good friend, Kate Watts, broke her pelvis in 3 spots and shattered her elbow from a fall at a wedding she was attending. Then, we lose Bernie Mac and shortly thereafter, Isaac Hayes. This past Wednesday, I found out that a good friend of […]
