You have modest goals - take a CAD file and get your mill to cut it. You don't want to become an expert on CAM software - you want parts today. MeshCAM is made for people who just want to make parts now.
Here's the MeshCAM process:
Load a file from almost any CAD program
Build an efficient toolpath with minimal input
Save gcode that works on your CNC machine
Don't let the simplicity fool you; MeshCAM has lots of flexibility and options for very advanced machining.
MeshCAM works with your CAD
MeshCAM works with almost every 3D CAD program by opening the two most common 3D file formats, STL and DXF.
Rhino, Solidworks, Autodesk Inventor, Viacad, Blender, Sketchup, Tinkercad, Autocad, Alibre, ZBrush, and many more work perfectly.
If you just want to make 2D parts without using a 3D CAD program, you can load 2D DXF files (in R12 format) and extrude them to a 3D part.
No CAD- No Problem
Sometimes you need a part that cannot be designed with a traditional CAD program.
Sometimes you don't even have a CAD program.
If this sounds like you, don't worry- open any image file (JPG, BMP, or PNG) and MeshCAM converts it to a 3D surface that can be machined directly.
Users have come up with incredible uses for this feature to make parts that would be almost impossible with a traditional CAD program.
