If you work with a 2D design program, like Autocad, Inkscape, or Adobe Illustrator, we can take a DXF or SVG file and load it into Carbide Create to generate a toolpath. Carbide Create is a full 2D design program itself so if you need to modify anything for manufacturing, it’s no problem.
Carbide Create in included with all Carbide 3D machines.
The Nomad 883 Pro comes with MeshCAM, a 3D CAM program to convert your existing 3D files into a toolpath that’s ready to run. MeshCAM is capable to dealing with very large, very complicated organic 3D files just as easily as a simple flat bracket.
MeshCAM takes STL files from almost any 3D CAD program to create a toolpath with minimum effort. STL files are supported by almost every CAD program including:
…and many more.
If you already have an entire CAD/CAM tool chain then you’re in luck, the gcode you already have will probable work on the Nomad with minimal changes.
All Carbide 3D machines support all basic gcodes and we’ve got users running their machine with very high-end industrial CAD/CAM programs with no trouble.
