Meshcam should be a good place to start
Hi gang, hope all is well.
I just got TurboCad 9.1 from my Wife and am wondering, how, after I design something, do I convert it into G-code for a 3 axis milling machine application? Preferably, I would like something shareware related, but, if the benefits of buying something outweigh the “freeness”, I am obviously willing to shell out some coin.
what controler are you using? Mach1 and 2 will convert dxf to g-code.
It will convert 2D drawings into gcode. You will have to do the radius compensation at the cad level tho. (offset all the lines you want cut half the cutter diemeter, save on new layer and then convert that layer in AceConverter.
I wish it wouldn't crash.
