Langmuir CNC Table

Postby NortheastRacing » Sat Jul 21, 2018 10:29 pm

Hello All,

I have recently ordered the new Langmuir table and am going through the software over the last couple of days. To be honest I'm a bit overwhelmed, I don't come from an overly tech savvy background but can get through Autodesk as far as design goes. I'm much better with a Tig torch in my hands. Any advise for a new plasma table owner would be much appreciated.

Thanks all,


Nick

Are you confused with fusion360 or mach3?

You can use inkscape or qcad for design. Those are the only other free ones I know of. But you will need something like sheetcam for cad.

I have the same table on the way. Total noob to mach3 but I have been playing with fusion. It’s a bit of a learning curve. I use other software for cad/cam myself

There is a flow of work that has about 3 steps, it may be better to start with a more simpler software then Autodesk.
To start you need to draw an object, this can be done with the above software, then you need a CAM program to convert the drawing to G-code.
Then this G-code it loaded into Mach 3 to direct the table to complete the operation. You could download a simple DXF file to skip the first step.
SheetCam is a widely used CAM software that you can download for free for testing using a small DXF file (SVG can be used too) to help you learn, Mach 3 can also be downloaded for free for testing with short G-code files. Start small and grow larger as you learn.
If you send me your email through a PM I will send you videos I have created showing the progression of the work path and many others downloaded for Inkscape and SheetCam via the Google drive. A non-Yahoo email address as Google and Yahoo don't play nice.

I'd like to get down on that. I just joined the form but can't send you a DM because I'm new on here. Any other way I can get the info from you?

Hi McGee
I just sent you a PM from here with the info you need for me to send the files to you. It looks like you can communicate with members you just cannot download files without being a member yourself. It is a great deal for $20 a year to become a member :D
Here is how you send a PM to a member ;)

Thank you all for your replies. I finally have a firm grasp on Fusion360 and Mach3 and will be cutting my first parts this weekend. What an incredible forum full of great resources!
