    Here we go Allen. Getting her setup to run next.

    Were rockin this bugger now!

    This action is a freak! It's a BAT Machine Model RL. Lots of features, facets, lugs, etc. Going to be fun programming this bugger.

    Rastor the tang to a vector file:

    The receiver has 32 facets all the way around it. I was able to mirror this in the inlet surface model. This should be pretty cool. I speculate its often debated if we truly do surface model each receiver.

    Hopefully this will settle the debate a bit. They are difficult to see in the CAD drawing. I could dicker around with the shading/lighting feature to illustrate it better, but I know they are there due to how I generated it. Lofted surfaces are handy for features like this.

    On we go. More to come. We'll be bedding this one today as well.

    5x so far this AM. Not too chabby!

    Bedding looks awesome!

    All the little facets in the receiver are mirrored perfectly.

    As excited as a guy is allowed to be (NeRdS!!) about a bedding job, this one pretty much takes the cake in my eyes.

    It's a BAT Machine RL action. Pretty wild lookin. Came out really nice.
