3-d


#1

Joel,

Well! don’t know if you are into the interenet,script like programming,etc.
but currently there are 2 very basic languages(with some word
processor/presentation products contributing that product 3-D imaging… Once
done, for example, they can be ‘moved to MS Word or MS Power Point by
’Entry commands’ and from there to the printer…

First, check out Microsoft.com(at the same URL) Internet Assistance series…
also …a little 'light reading (your choice) using the multi-browser…

at… http://www.info-access.com/MetaCrawler.html to locate – Type .
. VRML online Tutorial . . . Push Enter Key)

This provides a long list of tutorials, free products(VRML) to provide
background to include ‘Easy VRML’ tutorial, etc.

Also for very, very basic text there is HTML but this does not really provide
direct imaging… for other reasons, I’m currently exploring VRML as well as
other related subjects not related to Jewelry.

Could be that VRML code to MS WORD or MS Power Point to printer could be the
way!!!

AT IT!

Joel et. al,

Located a company, Servo Products Co.(818-796-2460, Pasadena Calf) that
makes a product . . Servo Mine Mill . . saw a picture of it, Understand it
is programmable in several languages, COREL Draw(New, Corel CAD, just out
advertised at $140.00!), others, and will ‘do the deed/job’. Will cut metal
or whatever. Cost I believe is in the neighbored of $16K . . very steep for
these pockets!!.. However, … like casting, some companies, you can write
your own programs, send them to the company, they test/cut for a fee???

Saw the ‘program’ for just a simple, no filigreed, wedding band . . . would
guess it was appox 150 instructions… but I sure many of the routines, once
written, are reusable, for example . . basic curvature of the shank, size,
width, etc.

Again, someone must have purchased one and willing to provide service… you
do the programs, they run to complete design…

Looked them upon the net … no ID as I can find…

Hi Jim

The Servo mill is the Rolls Royce of desktop 3-4 axis mills, I believe
Stuller uses them. The fully configured Servo mill with a 4th (4th axis
rotates the part, like a goblet holder in a hermes engraving machine,
except under computer control) axis runs about 29K last time I priced
one.

The 3 axis mill I own is a Roland CAMM-3, the present cost is about
$16K. There are now mills that will do just as good a job for under 4K!

Jeff,

$K … “By What Name to you call it???” . . Professor Jeff…

Think there’s a 2nd line business in this? What are your programs written
in or does it have an accompanying language??

Might be the Servo Mini Mill, don’t remember, have to dig out the
literature. I can do that if you’re really interested.

The programs I run on the Roland CAMM-3 are written in whatever cad/cam
program I happen to be using at the time (CadKey NC, Cutting Edge,
MasterCam, etc…). These NC programs have an auxillary program called a
post processor that takes the code (APT for instance) from the NC
program and translates it into a language that the controller on the
chosen mill can understand. You can create a design in CorelDRAW or any
graphics program that exports it in a DXF file format because most cad
programs will import dxf. Some desktop NC machines can undestand HPGL
code (for 2-D only) which CorelDRAW for instance can export and on some
machines like the Roland, you can PRINT the file to the machine.
