I have been asked by a professional aircraft designer ( R/C UAV ) to machine a Rhino 3D nosecone ( I have helped these blokes out with access to a flying field in country Australia ).
I am sort of comfortable with 2D stuff, ( export dxf's to Mach 2/3 ), I am not sure how to go from 2 to 3D, I am not sure how to make a Gcode file that Mach will read, I have been sniffing around and it seems like V-carve Pro can make the gcode file, as this is basically a hobby I am reluctant to spend $$$'s to find that I can't use it to generate the code.
Any suggestions as to where I should go from here, BTW I have a homemade machine of about 1200mm by 600mm by 200mm and am ready to go.
Is there a service that will generate the code if a drawing is sent to them??
Thanks for your help.
