We’ve gone ahead and created a YouTube account which we’ll use to host all Techworks related videos. There are only a few up there now but there are lots more to come, subscribe now! http://www.youtube.com/sktechworks
I want to give a huge thank you to Robert at GRZ Software LLC. He has graciously donated a license to Saskatoon TechWorks Inc for his awesome CAM software “MeshCAM“. It’s the bridge between your 3-D CAD file and the CNC Router. I’ve used this program in the past and it is extremely powerful yet easy to wrap your brain around. Even better, it’s the “MeshCAM Art” version which can take images as the input so you don’t need to know how to use CAD programs at all!
Robert even threw in a license for “CutViewer CNC Simulator“. This lets you run a virtual cutting process and see what the finished piece will look like before cutting (it’s never quite as you drew it thanks to round cutting tools, inside corners, etc), and see if your program is going to break a bit before it happens!
Please check out the linked websites for more info on both programs. We will be hosting a workshop/tutorial on them and if you or your employer have a need for some CAM software you should definitely consider MeshCAM.
It’s that time again! Our next monthly meeting will be held on November 8th in our secret basement lab (Studio D, 220 20th St W). Everyone is welcome, so come on down and check us out if you’re curious.
More updates soon.
