3D Dome Hii All ,
i need to generetae a dome on my machine , TNC 355 Heidenhain , but i don't know how to do that by BOBCAD 21 , could anyone help plz ,
i can use autocad 3D well and BOBcad 2D too , but i don't know how to generate this Autocad drawings with BOBCAD 3D
i just need the key to enable the 3D movments
There are a few ways to do this cross section and revolver and 3 edge cross section
i know the revolve command , but i need to know how to let the machine moves in Z and X axis in he same time for example ,
when i import a DXF file to bobcad even if it is a a3D file , BOBCAD treat it as a 2D file , am using bobcad 21
Solids:Primitives: Sphere: Centre X Y Z Radius: OK
Solids:Primitives: Cube: Ref X Y Z Dim L W H : OK
All: Solids: Boolean: Difference: OK
Insert NC (to open Cam window)
All ( Cad window)
3D ( Cam window)
Solids: Generate Tool Path: Sprial Path: Next etc........
Experiment with these tools until you get what you require.
i'll do that now , how it success
after you made your shape cam side-lower left 3d button now your code will do 3d moves if not chck it will do 2d only
Spitting Domes Out Here is a program that spits out domes. This is as easy as it gets.
PS: the only easier way I know to get the dome pattern is to have someone else do it...ha.
Can't seem to download the windome.zip file; Just get an attachement file, which is not windome.
Thanks for answering, Charles Lee
not to start up an old thread, but bobcad v21 will not do a toolpath in XZ plane. will end up doing point to point moves. Not sure if bc 2k7 has this option or not.
