2.5D Machining is for Everyone !


What's the easiest way to... CNC something ?

We had a lot of people asking about how can someone with little or none experience in 3D design can create something using a CNC machine?
The answer to that question is a procedure called 2.5D machining.

“In machining, 2.5D refers to a surface which is a projection of a plane into 3rd dimension – although the object is technically 3-dimensional, there are no overhanging elements possible. 2.5D objects are often greatly preferred for machining, as it is easy to generate G-code for them in an efficient, often close to optimal fashion. 2.5D objects can be machined on a 3-axis milling machine, and do not require any of the features of a higher-axis machine to produce. (wikipedia)”


2.5D Hello World Tutorial

The following “Hello World” tutorial explains the basics of the 2.5D machining and how easy is for everyone to turn a simple 2D design into a real object using a few open source software.

To make our design we used Inkscape (https://inkscape.org).
Inkscape is professional quality vector graphics software which runs on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

To generate GCode we used JSCut (http://jscut.org/).
JSCut is an open source web application that generates GCode from SVG Files.

And of course we tested our GCode using the Rabbit Mill v2.0 desktop CNC.

  5. Australian ETA Visa

    Australian ETA Visa also known as Electronic Travel Authority is a type of visa that gives permission to a few specific foreign country nationals to enter and exit Australia for a certain period of time. This visa is electronically linked to someone’s passport so it doesn’t need to be stamped or put a label on it. Since it’s been electronically linked to one’s passport the data on the ETA can be accessed by travel agents, airlines and also Australian border agencies. So it is imperative that you bring the same passport you used to apply for ETA visa while you’re traveling to Australia.
