Up until recently I've been using fixed workholding *aka* Dovetail vises I made.
Now I'm using more Kurt and Self centering vises in my programming and like the jaws to be modeled as accurately as possible.
Right now I have some assemblies created with the vises. I import the vise into the CAM, wavelink the jaws, either custom model jaws or just position them correctly. It becomes a cluster managing everything.
What does everyone else do for this? Turn the vise into a "reuse"? Deal with wavelinks?
I do the reuse library as well. I leave the floating jaw with one degree of freedom and then override the position when I get it into my assembly.
I think there are some videos in the tech tips section of this board.
