Solution to the incompatibility of CNC Router software
A considerable part of the design of a friend may use CAD, Pro/E, 3Dmax and other two-dimensional, three-dimensional design software, but the software is not very good to generate the tool path for the identification of the CNC Router ( http://www.roc-tech.com/product/product33.html ). Artcam is a relatively fast calculation tool path of the software, but the people who can skillfully use the software is very little. In fact, the two can be a good combination, with their own more skilled software to do a good job of model and then save as Artcam can import the format, and then calculate the tool path.
So what is the format of the Artcam to support the mold file? Like *.dxf, *.3ds, and *.stl these commonly used formats can be quickly introduced. Specific how to operate?
First from the file toolbar point to take the new file icon, produce a new document; in the new model Size dialog input height, width, resolution; set a good point to accept. Select a file from the menu option - enter... 3D model options, and then choose the format of the corresponding model file can be opened, on the screen and pasted three-dimensional model dialog will come forward to this model is ArtCAM attachable to a relief, to use and edit to edit the 3D model file relief similar methods in the dialogue window, edit the model reference position, size and scaling. After editing, you can click on the application button, so the model is scaled and positioned to the basic relief; then click the paste button, the three-dimensional model is pasted to the ArtCAM relief.
This model is introduced into the Artcam software, we select the model to select the tool path, and then save the path as the CNC Router format is done. Still have a headache for this kind of problem friend might as well try this kind of method, very practical. The relief model does not lead to the loss of precision!
