Amazing work! Is it just purely cosmetic?

Little bit of Weight reduction, more surface area for cooling and some cosmetic appearance.

Thanks!

That came out excellent. Is the spacing and depth done my programming or manually?

Z (depth) axis had a stop.

That makes it even more awesome! I've seen some that weren't evenly spaced or to varying depths done by 'professionals.' Well done!

Did you happen to count how many dimples were on it? I have a 20" YHM with similar dimpling and the cooling difference between that and my 20" match barrel is like night and day.
