Alibre Design to CamBam Video Tutorial
« on: May 21, 2020, 21:48:41 pm »
I was asked by Alibre design if i would be so kind to make a Video Tutorial of how i came from an Alibre Design model to a finished product.

So i cobbled up this video for everyone to learn from.

Yes!  I'm usually loathe to watch anything longer than four or five minutes, but that was very much worth my time.

I know why you did what you did in QCAD but it can be also done in CamBam with the help of some plugins.
I also wondered why those operations could not have been done in Alibre.

Is the "CamBam Addon to Alibre Design" no use these days ? https://cambamcnc.com/forum/index.php?topic=833.msg4413#msg4413

Where can i find that plugin?.. a working version of that?..

That would be something usefull i think..

I am fully aware of the fact that a lot of things could be done in CamBam, instead of QCad.. but CamBam is a CAM program, not a CAD program.. and i don't use any of the Cad functionality in CamBam, because it takes me too much time to figure out how it works, Time i'd rather spend using a Cad program, and Spitting out geometry that works..

The plugin is here; https://cambamcnc.com/forum/index.php?topic=833.msg10517#msg10517

It includes some brief instructions from Andy.

For CamBam 0.9.8 only. I don't have Alibre so can't test.

Downloaded it.. and. i have CamBam 1.0.. so.. it doesnt work..

it would also be cool if there was some kind of manual describing what it actualy does..
