I'm a retired model-maker interested in shaping sheet metal. I design in Rhinoceros 3D and have some CAM, rendering, CNC capabilities. I also have spin-casting capabilities. I enjoy making scale models of all types. My sheet metal shaping is limited to making some weird surgical instruments at a place I worked at many years ago. I want to learn more about shaping sheet metal into complex shapes. I'm particularly interested in shaping brass and steel sheet metal. Please be patient with my beginners questions :^)

Jack
