I am beyond excited for this project! It has a practical application (hopefully improving muzzle climb and reducing shot split times), it is a great CAD / CAM / machining example and, if I may say so, it's cool!
Part 1: Creating the part in Solidworks CAD
Part 2: Modeling the part in SprutCAM 9 CAM
Part 3: Machining the part on the Tormach PCNC 1100 with 4th axis!
Between the 4th axis work, complex geometry and thread milling, this should be a heck of a fun project!
Interesting in supporting these channels at no cost? Purchase a 3D Space Mouse (http://amzn.to/1pNEN74) or anything from Amazon (http://amzn.to/1vJDRIh) through our Amazon Associate links!
