    Hi,

    I was thinking of using Meshcam to organise my obj. files then input to powder mill so the operation at university can check before he sends to CNC machine. Reason is I am not allowed to operate the machine, the software at uni is power-mill and the operator doesn't like to work with obj. /stl. If you get my drift?

    If Meshcam cant be imported to power-mill do you know others that can do as well as liking obj.

    Regards,

    Zymon

    MeshCAM will not change the format of your .obj or .stl files, and won't give you anything to import into Powermill.

    Can't I load the G code from MeshCam into PowerMill?
