    Is it possible...? Based on the article, yes.

    Can I, with the tools/materials available to me? no
    Could I, with the tools @Maki role has available to him? probably still no, but i'd give it a shot.

    Yes, but I'm too cheap to do it. Also, ew... metric. :p

    They [Americans] will shout up and down about how wonderful the faction based system is, but as soon as industry goes to work it is done in decimal (mills or even millimetres). Time to face up and publicly admit, you just want to use metric.

    Interesting challenge, be fun to see if any of the CNCers will accept.

    no I can not, my only form of CNC is a vinyl cutter

    could I have it done, heck yea, my company has a dedicated machine shop (might I add within 10 min of my house) with some grumpy old fart that can make the 6 axis cut optical lenses ... but I do not think that is the point

    edit "my company" means the company I work for ... not my personal thing

    Calm down, and put the pitchforks away. It's just that none of my tooling is metric.

    These kinds of articles are what sets bit-tech apart and it's fantastic seeing more of them, more regularly.

    I may not be able to do this, but that doesn't dampen my desire to try something.

    Me personally? no. However I can hit up our machining guy here at the office and with our Hermle 5-Axis system he runs this wouldn't even be a challenge.

    OK @TGImages you've got two people plus a guy with a dog avatar daring you to do it, that formally constitutes a "double dog dare" which I believe is legally binding.
