MESHLAB

MeshLab

MeshLab the open source system for processing and editing 3D triangular meshes. It provides a set of tools for editing, cleaning, healing, inspecting, rendering, texturing and converting meshes. It offers features for processing raw data produced by 3D digitization tools/devices and for preparing models for 3D printing.

Girih App | Stefan Hintz

Girih App

To create even easier ornaments, than with the laser cutted Girih tiles, I decided to write a specialized App for it. An App has some advantages to the physical tiles: Physical tiles tend to move around a bit, when you release your fingers or add another piece.

CAM-GCode software

G-code generators

A) grbl-controller 3.0
Grbl Controller sends GCode to CNC machines. Version 3.0 is has been optimized for the Arduino to control Grbl shields. Grbl Controller can use the QextSerialPort library to simplify choosing the correct USB serial port.

B) Makercam
MakerCAM is a web based CAM program. Simple by design, MakerCAM allows you to produce toolpaths for 3-axis CNC machines that accept standard RS274D GCode.

link: about makercam

C) Easy cnc
The goal of the project is the realization of a modular firmware that allows to control a CNC machine with different utensils.

D) cnc-masteryou
A small program to quickly generate GCode. It can generate circular pockets, square pockets, etc. Now you can generate a simple program from DXF.
Use the tab “Cutting a path” or “Array of elements”. Added engraving by DXF file.

E) gcodetools – inkscape plugin

F) JSCUT – a cam in your browser

G) benbox

GRBL workflow – Arduino

INSTALL WORKFLOW using an arduino uno and an arduino cnc shield:

1) Grbl is a motion control GCode Interpreter. The controller is written in highly optimized C to achieve precise timing and asynchronous operation. It is able to maintain up to 30kHz of stable, jitter free control pulses.
download GRBL 1.1 here

2) Flash the file to the arduino in various ways:
compile in the Arduino IDE
— download  the Arduino IDE for mac – pc – linux
