Introduction: CAD-to-Product With a Laser Cutter: Wood Cube
Quick tutorial on creating a 3D object with CAD software, CAM software, CNC control software, and a Laser Cutter. This is for laser cutters that operate using g-code. This is a simple example of how to make a 3D object. If you want simple boxes, there are many parametric box creation tools out there.
We are using AutoCAD, CamBam, and Mach3 software, along with the blackTooth Laser Cutter/Engraver Kit from www.BuildYourCNC.com, but you can use whichever software and hardware you have available to get the job done...
