SHOPBOT: Solidworks to CNC: 2D vs 3D machining

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Description: With a 3D rendering CAD software such as Solidworks, one
can view the CAD drawings from multiple angles, test the assemblies, and
even create videos of the completed project.  However, not all projects
need to be machined as 3D objects.  We will analyze a couple of projects
designed in Solidworks and determine whether they should be exported as
2D files (.dxf, eps, ai) and machined with a square end mill bit in
sheet goods, or 3D files (.stl) and machined in 3D with a ball nose bit.
 The ShopBot Handibot with FabMo Control software will be our CNC of
choice for this demo.
Diagram of expected setup: We are flexible, as long as the Handibot has
room to work.  I will pre-make samples so we only have to air cut if
noise and dust is a problem.  We have a handout ready to, well, hand
out, with illustrations and work flow.
