I searching the web and I can't find the simple cam for 3 or 5 axis machine for low cost. The only solution seems to be CNC-Toolkit. http://www.cnc-toolkit.com/
. But they require Gmax or similar and those software is not really engineering packages, and package itself has still many drawbacks.
So I was thinking as FreeCad is script capable to go in similar way as CNC toolkit to provide some CAM output.
I think I know what I need to do (a really a lot of work) but I do need to learn python before.
So I expect workflow like this:
Slice part (probably mesh) as I need to glue workpiece. (the stock is from 5 to 10 cm thick, but I need to be up to 1m. so I glue layers)
Now rought the glued stock (it has much les volume as box stock) , and finaly finish it.
of course there should be simulation of machine too (to check collisions)
For path I think to use CNC toolkit aproach to project the line/spline/wire to the part (mesh) and then calculate the path according to that.
So is there capability to project line to surface already build? (I'm new to FreeCad too)
...or is maybe better to leave FreeCad and do that CAM as stand alone application?
