Hello,
I'm just starting to learn MeshCAM and I'm having some trouble. My CNC machine isn't supported by the software, so I've been trying to use the Generic 3018 as a substitute, but it seems too small for my needs. Instead, I have a TwoTree TTC450 that I purchased from Microcenter - it's a good option for beginners and is actually larger than the 3018.

As someone with a background in 3D printing, I'm used to building custom profiles for my printers. I was wondering if there's a way to create a CNC profile in MeshCAM as well? Any guidance or tips would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Tom

Use the Add button on Select Machine menu - you can define you machine size etc there.

Stick with whatever post processor has been working - if you do need to customise the post processor, contact MeshCAM support. They can either give tips or will modify the POST file for you.

thanks for the info! I assume MeshCam for Alibre is not a product Developed and Supported by Alibre?

No - it is the Professional version of MeshCAM.

Alibre can provide basic support, but for really involved stuff MeshCAM themselves know more.
