In this episode, we will be exploring the idea of going from blueprint to completed object in this case 3D printed. To do this I borrowed some blueprints from That Lazy Machinist (see more here: www.thatlazymachinist.com/) and selected the Bench Block (download complete set here: diy3dtech.com/thatlazymachinistblueprints to download them)
As I have been following Titan Gilroy at Titans of CNC Academy (see more here: academy.titansofcnc.com/) and it’s clear the next generation of manufacturing needs the next generation of machinists! Yet how do we get started, well I think 3D printing could be the key as the workflow is similar (i.e. Design-CAD-CAM-Product). So if you can master taking a blueprint and creating a 3D printed object, you are the majority of the way there!
Here we took the bench block and printed in PETG (see more here: amzn.to/2VRKxo1) and it came out great! For the CAD component we used Open SCAD (see more here on the coding aspect: youtu.be/pEfEG7FMiXg ) as well as you get the code here: openscad.diy3dtech.com/open-scad-that-lazy-machinist-bench-block/ or just download the STL from Thingiverse here: www.thingiverse.com/thing:3398103
