    Hi everyone, yet one more dumb question that has probably been asked a million times or so..... Is it possible to take files off of Thingiverse and cut them out on a CNC router, obviously not all objects would be able to be converted, but I think it would be possible for some more 2D or 2.5D profiles to be downloaded and put through a cad program as apose to a slicer?
    What do you think?
    Happy are they who dream dreams and are willing to pay the price to see them come true.

    Fusion 360 (free for home and hobby use) will also let you import an STL mesh model and use its built-in CAM to produce a toolpath for a router or whatever. I've done it this way myself, both starting with a 3D STL mesh created from a bunch of photographs and downloading a model from Thingiverse.
