It takes popular 2D file formats and allows the user to determine which parts of a design need to be milled or cut, how fast, at what depth, and any other details.The language used to instruct CAM systems to perform operations.Roughing costs are two-fold—the long amounts of time it generally takes to remove the material and the costs associated with replacing worn tooling.Finishing costs include the time it takes to write complex CAM programs with the minute stepovers that the moldmaker hopes will result in mirror finishes, along with the numerous hours it takes to hand polish areas that come off the machine without complying to the user’s surface finish specifications.Even though he was still in his twenties, he had 10 years of tool & die experience starting with IBM’s apprenticeship program.

While individual G-code sender packages are still used in some of the open source toolchains, many of the commercial packages now combine a slicer and a G-code sender into a single package.The file type is “unitless” — 1 unit could be 1mm or 1″ (or any other arbitrary measure) — so it’s important to know how the file was generated.The specific CAM technology improvements that Choice Tool received training in were Opti Rough (a 3-D full flute roughing toolpath based on Mastercam’s Dynamic Milling technology) and the unique advanced Toolpath Refinement algorithm used for making granular changes to finishing toolpaths in order to achieve exceptionally high surface finishes.As opposed to traditional CAD programs, there is no “drawing” in Open SCAD — all designs are defined as text and then compiled to see the resulting shapes.Additive manufacturing works in layers and a “slicer” is the software package used to cut a 3D model into flat layers that can be printed one at a time.
