CNC Milling/Solidworks question
So let's say for instance you have a design of some autococker milling done on a CNC mill. Is it possible for a skilled person to start with a finished plan for a design used on WGP spec bodies and convert it to more or less the same design but on a merlin spec body? Almost reverse engineer (not quite right term, but might make sense) it to work. Or must the design be done from scratch around those parameters?
I hope that made sense.

The Merlin is just a different bore on the lower tube right? As long as it's still a 1" wide body I don't see the problem.

if you have the model of the original milling you could insert that part into the new part and do a subtract to impose those surfaces on the new body.
OR if you have the actual file where all the surfaces were made you could just go and change the underlying geometry so that it matches a merlin body. It would probably require some work to get all of the revised geometry to work, but it is possible.
