LazyCam (Beta) / Picture to Preudo 3D Engraving
« on: May 31, 2012, 09:38:55 PM »
hi, so i have picture and i want to do engraving with 15 degree V bits.
How can i do this ? I opened Lazy Cam loaded image and selected V something method.... well output gave me flat white panel? Sounds that i did something wrong? Did i?
Are there any other alternative software within a range of $500 that can use V-Bits? I tried mesh Cam Art it has nice output but i have no idea how to add V bits , i only can select mill tools that i create :(

Tnx foir help!

General Mach Discussion / G-Code Cut or Missing When opening in Mach3
« on: February 05, 2012, 08:09:43 PM »
Hey all, so i tried to do my 1st 3D cut.... well it didn't work to well what i found out that when I loaded G-code generated from MeshCam, Mach3 only took some few lines of the code and ignored rest of the file... How acn this be fixed?

Attached what i got: 1st i loaded full file with rough and fine finishj but only gut what you see on top: section of rough finish which is not even close to sphere shaped taht i was cutting. Then i loaded lust fine finish and got only that deep hole that supposed to be full sphere.

So the question is: how can i fix that? TNX!

G-Code, CAD, and CAM discussions / Milling SolidWorks Model
« on: February 04, 2012, 10:39:35 PM »
Hi, i'm trying to learn how to mill simple 3D parts out of wax. I did sample model (knob) in SolodWorks, and i saved it as STL file. Then imported to CamBam to do G code but i dont really know what i am doing.
So maybe some one can help me out by pointing to video or text tutorial? So far I learned how to do 2D cuts with Mach3 now need to figure out how to cut SW models.
Thanks a lot for helping :)
