In this CNC Tutorial Video we go over the design in CAD. We resize it to our dimensions and then convert it into a DXF File. Finally the DXF File is ready for CAM. There are many things you should look at while in the CAD phase. Mainly you need to know you design is exactly correct. If you don't you will just have errors and waste downstream in the CNC Process.
In this CNC Basics Video we go over CAD. CAD Stands for Computer Aided Design. During the CAD step we take our initial design and translate it into the computer. We do this CNC Step so we can change the design, resize it, save it, transfer it to someone else, etc. Recording our CNC Design into CAD gives us flexibility.
During CAD we learn we first design parts, then assemblies, then groups, then machines. We also learn there are different types of CAD Software. 2D, 2.5D and 3D. These types also come in different software packages from inexpensive to expensive. You can spend up to the sky if you want.
The trick is to match the CAD Software Capabilites with your CNC Needs. You don't need high power 3D Modeling CAD if you make simple parts day in and day out.
Tomorrow's lesson is CAM. Computer Aided Manufacturing.
In this Rhino 3D CAD lesson we go over the screen. The different parts of the CAD Interface and what the general areas are called inside of Rhino CAD.
These Rhino Areas are covered:
Rhino 3D Pull Down Menus
Rhino 3D Command Line
Rhino 3D Viewports
Rhino 3D Toolbars
Rhino 3D Toolbar Flyouts
Rhino 3D Status Bar
Rhino 3D Graph Area
This will give you a general idea of the layout of Rhino.
We go over the Rhino CAD Help Screen during this tutorial. In the Rhino Help Screen there are different types of section to help you navigate.
Here are the Rhino Help Sections
Check out the Rhino Help areas in this quick Rhino 3D Tutorial Video.
We walk through the Rhino CAD Command Line on this video. The command line is where your different actions are recorded. You can also use it to quickly pull up different functions and make modifications while designing.
The Command line can also be resized as well as the history recorded. You can also export the history out of the Rhino 3D Command Line.
In this Rhino CAD Tutorial Video we go through how you navigate around the workspace. We look at the Pan Tool and also how to move around your model in 3D space.
Moving around your Rhino 3D model is very important. The quicker you learn how to navigate in Rhino CAD the more efficient you will be when modeling.
We go over Rhino 3D Toolbars in this tutorial video. There are a number of different ways to access the tool bars. You can also create tool bar flyouts, resize toolbars, and dock toolbars. Rhino CAD Toolbars are a very flexible way to work.
I like to undock a number of toolbars that I will be using for a project. I think keep these tool bars within reach while working. It really speeds things up having Rhino's tools close at hand.
Here we go over Rhino CAD's zooming features. There are a number of different ways to zoom in and out of Rhino 3d. I prefer the mouse wheel. It is the quickest and easiest way to zoom in and out on objects in RhinoCAD.
We also go over Zoom Extents and a Marque Zoom. Combining the different zooming types within RhinoCAD helps us move between viewports quickly and easily.
