Using Cura for Routing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Using Cura for Routing

I have figured out how to use Cura to run my home brew router except for one problem, I need to slice from the top to the bottom. It's a simple process. Create a model which is a negative ( ie, what I want removed), then set the nozzle width to mimic the router bit diameter and the filament step for the router cut depth. The problem is since the router REMOVES material, I need Cura to start from the top and work it's way down.

I'm hoping there is a simple way to do this that I haven't thought of, or some application someone knows about which can do this.

I appreciate the help!
