One of the first things you’ll learn as a budding machinist is how important it is to keep control of your workpiece at all times. If you’re cutting a project out of a larger piece of stock, it can be useful to employ tabs. They work just like perforations in paper, allowing you to easily remove your workpiece on your own time. The best part is that even the most basic CAM solutions enable you to make use of tabs.
In this week’s video, I’ll show you how you can setup tabs on your own project in MakerCAM. Let me know if this helps, or if you have any other CNC-related questions. Cheers!
