How to create custom stock in lathe

Lathe Custom Stock

In order to create a custom stock shape in lathe you will need to draw the profile of the stock in a workgroup. The closed (blue) shape should be the only geometry in the WG. To define your workgroup as stock you:

  • Open the Workgroup list
  • Right-click on the workgroup that contains your stock geometry
  • Select WG Info (v7.0 or later)
  • Choose Stock and select Revolve
This is the standard stock as rendered in GibbsCAM

If you draw a rectangle as shown and define the WG as stock

this should be the result:

More complex shapes are supported as well.
