Tutorial: BlenderCAM Drone Project

I just finished another BlenderCAM Tutorial.

Winston Samuel Aquino Zabala contacted me after watching my first introduction BlenderCAM tutorial video. He asked if I can help him on how to generate CNC paths for his cool drone project. He wants to create carbon fiber molds out of aluminum.

I agreed to take a look and make a tutorial of the process for all BlenderCAM users.

I use a Shapeoko and a X-Carve mill and create all files using BlenderCAM and send the G-Code to the mills using Chilipeppr.

Please support BlenderCAM and Blender.

X-Carve Assembly Stop Motion

Two weeks ago I have finished the assembly of our Inventables X-Carve at ETH raplab. Since we are super busy at the moment giving workshop introductions to our wood and digital workshop I had no time yet to edit and upload the video…until now 🙂 Enjoy the little stop motion movie.

I still have to spend more time with the mill as soon as I have more time. I tested it using BlenderCAM and Chilipeppr, it went ok but some things responded a bit wonky in Chilipeppr. I also want to mount a Makita router to get more power…

BlenderCAM Video-Tutorial: 01 Basics

While I started using BlenderCAM I struggled with the settings, now a lot improved and I have used BlenderCAM with a Shapeoko 2 CNC-Mill without problems. In this video I go over the basics and describe the settings loosely until I finish with the exported GCode.
