CutterVision Features

CutterVision is a software based add-on to your lathe setup which shows the turner where he is cutting relative to the final shape desired.

CutterVision leaves the turner in complete control of the creative process.

CutterVision decreases the stress of not knowing if your wall thickness is near your preferred final dimension or if you are about to cut through the side of your vessel.

For Hollowing:

  • Shows an actual captured image of the cutter even when the cutter is inside a vessel.
  • Shows a line around the cutter at a user specified distance from the cutter to measure wall thickness.
  • Capturing the cutter image and generating the wall thickness line takes less than 2 seconds.
  • Change the color of the wall thickness line to contrast with the wood color.
  • Zoom in on the cutter to easily see and control thin wall thicknesses.
  • Works with any shaped cutter you may have.

Other uses

Jam chucking: see the end of your jam chuck or vacuume chuck while turning the bottom of your bowl and know how thick the bottom of your bowl is.

Drilling a blank before turning a vessel: see how deep your drill bit is so you know when to stop.

Bowl turning: measure the wall thickness.  Use CutterVision like a digital caliper with an accuracy up to 1/100th of an inch.

And there's more

A solid camera mount means stability of the image while turning.

The camera mount is designed to attache to the JTTurningTools Gizmo but can be adapted for use on most hollowing rigs.
