I (we) (engineering and robotics class in High School) have built the CNC with mini rambo server. We finished the construction today. I have a couple of questions if someone can help. I am going to research this site in addition. I though the fastest way to get started was to ask quesitons.
I am wanting to get my Superintendent in to see this machine ASAP. We do not have a clue where to begin. We have a prusa 3D printer and have gotten pretty good and designing and printing objects.
- What is the fastest way to get this machine cutting wood. We have the Dewalt Spiral saw attached?
- What file type do we use. I know on the 3D printer we save STL file and then slice it with a Gcode. What do we do with this to get it cutting.
- Do we design like we are printing?
- This is the first year I have taught anything like this so my students and I are learning together. I am really proud of them and want to get this thing running.
