We are happy to announce the availability of a new program to generate g-code automatically for woodworking joints. The program being released now is a free demonstration program to generate g-code for mortises. A complete g-code program can be generated in 2 minutes or less by simply entering parameters for stock size, mortise size and placement, feed rates, etc.
In the near future a full version of the program will be available at a reasonable cost. The full version will generate a variety of woodworking joints such as dados, tenons, dovetails and hinge pockets.
In addition to generating g code, plugins are available for Google SketchUp which will automatically generate the part in SketchUp.
This approach is backwards from the standard process of designing in a CAD package, exporting to a CAM package, then generating a g-code file. Our claim is that our method will save you considerable time, since you need only enter a handful of parameters and some standard text. Admittedly, these cuts are all relatively simple, but they are also the foundation for furniture and cabinet building.
The program CambumCode Free is available for download at www.cambiummachines.com\Gcode.html
