I have a Gerber Sabre 408. It only cuts 2 1/2D. I would like to cut 3D reliefs and vacuumform molds. Is there a machining software that will slice the model into layers, say, .0625 thick, and assign a toolpath to that layer.
Much like a topographical map.
Or do I have to split up the part on my Solidedge software, convert to dxf and assign toolpaths to the layers?
Anyone with ideas on how to fool the 2 1/2D machine into a 3D world?
I will sand the stepovers and it should come out fine.
By the way, I've been working with Les at Sheetcam to make a post for the Gerber Sabre.
Nice Guy, Fine product.
