My oldest daughter has a 4 week tech class, learning to use CAD software and the school's new 3D printer. We had P-T conferences this evening, and saw some of the projects. We even got to watch our daughter set up and start printing the Empire State Building.
Anywho, the school got their hands on a used Spectra Light mill. It has a computer tower with it. No idea what is loaded onto it. But, the school needs to find the necessary software to run the mill. So if anyone can help out here, I would appreciate it. Even if you could help me know what questions to ask about their setup would help.
They use AutoDesk Inventor Pro for their CAD. What I need to figure out is how or if they can get those drawings switched over to g-code with that software, or is it something that will need to be done with the CAM software. And what CAM software I should be looking for that can talk to the autodesk, if possible.
They're also looking for a Epilog table top laser for the class.
If you're about to complain this isn't gt-related, let me stop you right here. The school has a JD 935 with a deceased transaxle to trade.
