Custom CNC Routing

2. CAD Programming

After confirming that we can fully machine (router) the piece, we convert the drawing to a CAD file. Care is taken to produce a file exactly as specified on the drawing. If you provide a CAD file we will import it into our software thus reducing the amount of time spent and lowering your cost in getting your piece ready for production. At the next step we tool path the drawing. This is where instructions are given to the machine such as router bit profile, speed and order of passes. Once the file is completed, it is saved to file to use the next time we machine the same part. (If some change is desired in the next production changes can be easily made.) Now we are ready to machine the part. The file is exported to the CNC for production.
