Hi, Well the subject says it all.
I want to cut out stations in an CNC but need to withdraw the planking thickness.
anyone that has an suggestion how it could be done?
you will need a 3rd party program to offset your frames eg AutoCad, Rhino 3d and there are many others. First save your model as a DXF file and import it into your preferred program.
I wonder if a scalar transformation by a scaling factor that is the ratio of B/2 minus plank thickness divided by B/2 in Y- direction and an analog one in the Z- direction by a scaling factor of Tdwl minus plank thickness divided by Tdwl wouldn’t do the job?
Or is this a too simplified, crude assumption?
Sounds all chinese to me deadwood but if it makes sense to you, go for it. Let us know how it turns out. :dry:
