Using Cura for Routing

Recommended Posts

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!

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
