Angle Irion?? That's one that I have not heard yet, but it would be possible with a jig setup in the front where the torch is and on the chuck to hold the angle iron.

On the programming of the angle iron it would be just like a square tube minus the two sides. As for the tube notching you can already get the cope profile DXF from Bend Tech and import it into SheetCAM or you can draw a custom DXF cope and than import the file into SheetCAM.

PM sent

To answer the PM questions can you use Bend Tech to get the cut profile and mark the bend locations in SheetCAM Rotary program is yes.

All you have to do is:

> Print the wrapper using (Microsoft XPS Document Writer) as you printer.
>Convert your .xps file to .dxf (we use reaCreator 7 - only $49).
>Open the .dxf in your cad program.
>Scale the .dxf ( in BobCAD it is around .500)
>Edit the lines you want to keep.
>Add labeling that you want to mark on the tube (bend location lengths/orientation lines).
> Save as a .dxf file.
> Open in SheetCAM
>Process it like you would if you made your own .dxf file for a tube. (Use a cut layer and a marking layer in contours)
You ready to cut the tube.

I will try to make a video that will walk trough the versos step. But it is really not that hard. Once you have the cut files for a frame done once. You will be able to repeat the frame with ease again and again.

We are building a 20' tube cutter right now and they are using 2x3 tube on their trailers. Here is a picture of what it looks like doing square tube. Email me or give me a call and I can get you pictures of the rectangle tube setup.
