The Blender CAM gallery shows "The very first 4-axis machined item, by +Bernardo Mattiucci" I hope Bernardo will join this community and discuss how he manipulated Blender CAM to come up with the g-code for this feat.

Questions / Answers  - 
 
I downloaded the Blender CAM "samples.blend" file with the monkey faces floating all over as well as something that looks like a gasket of some type. It completely confused me! I don't see any documentation about each of these samples.

Objects in this file are:
CAM_machine
Sphere
block
carve
carve path
circle
cross
cut non closed curves
cutout
cutout curve
drill
drill.001
inverse
limit
limitcrazy
limitp
outlinefill
parallel
parallel.001
pencil
pocket
sorting
spiral
waterline

Has anyone played around with this file and did you get anything useful out of studying it?

I've just created a new community for users of Blender CAM which is a CAM enhancement to Bender. It is in active development and making great strides to make this a potential contender to professional CAM software in the future. Software developers are welcome to contribute to this project especially if you love 3D work and love a challenge.

Please join if you hope to learn more about Blender CAM or if you are an experienced user wanting to share your knowledge.

I just emailed the Blender CAM developer, Vilém Novák, and told him about this community. I think he uses the G+ id +Blender CAM

Work
Occupation
artist
Skills
social media, web design, writing & art - particularly political cartoons.
Employment
  • Self
    artist, present
    I enjoy drawing cartoons, line work and painting. I have also enjoyed wood carving in the past. I work part time on a temp basis to help a friend in a legal office as needed if I'm able -- currently setting up quick books for them.
  • AAUW
    Social Media Committee, 2013
    I was the chair of the AAUW Social Media Committee from the start of the AAUW Social Media Task Force, then committee till July 2013. Before this I researched social media platforms (including Second Life) for possible use for AAUW and other nonprofits.
  • Shell Oil Company
    CAD/Oracle programmer, 1980 - 1995
    I worked for the drafting department at Shell as Oracle database software administrator for CAD, user support on IBM mainframe, Unix, VAX, PC, MAC and CAD specialties such as Auto-Trol and MicroStation machines. I also migrated files from a turnkey typesetting system into Auto-Trol so the old system could be retired. In the days of Mac's not talking nice to PC's, a lot of my efforts was finding ways to share files between all these machines from the MAC's which were the odd balls of the whole system.
Basic Information
Gender
Female
Story
Tagline
AAUW advocate for equity and respect for women & girls.
Introduction
I love art and photography. I'm absolutely nuts about cartoons - especially political & social cartoons.

Some people call me an old hippie because of my strong feminist views and out spoken ways but it is ridiculous to be labelled "radical" for only expecting equity and respect for women and girls today.

I try to be non-partisan and vote independently. I will speak out against those I feel do NOT deserve your vote but I typically do not make endorsements.

I AM NOT PRO-ABORTION, but must be pro-choice. I would prefer women choose life but I accept that only they and their doctors can make this difficult choice.

Please know that there is help when life and kids get too hard --  CALL " 2 1 1 "  FOR HELP.
Bragging rights
I am the past chair of the AAUW Social Media Committee from the conception of the Social Media Task Force through July 2013
