Milling so far

Post by Pyro on Sun Jul 24, 2016 8:47 am

So far I've got most of the formaker tools to work: 3D printing turned out to work, laser cutting even better. So the next tool I'm trying to get to work is the CNC mill. Unfortunately I've encoutered a few hickups... The worst being Heeks not actually wanting to create a tool path and crashing with a backplot.xml not found message.
Which is basically why I switched to Autocad Fusion, being a Free (If you're a Student or Teacher) All-In-One solution.

But here I'm stuck at the Post-Process Menu, because I have absolutely no idea on what presets to choose...

Did somebody got any of the software working? And if how? Wink

Well it is Free, if you're a student Wink 
(OR pretend to be? there were no real checks on that mather)
Thing is, the provided "free" HeeksCad really is far from user friendly,  and as mentioned ic ould get it to work...

There are a quite a few free alternatives though. But most of them are "CAD-only" so they cant plot paths.
