There has been movement in our software development space.
As you know, CAMLab (a CAM generation software for 3D models made by myself and based on Kiri:Moto) has been a passion project of our company to try to get a more beginner-friendly 3D CAM software out there for anyone to use. I’ve envisioned this as a great alternative to the far more complicated 3D CAM programs such as Fusion 360, PathCAM, MeshCAM, and others.
In an effort to continue to improve the feature set and usability of CAMLab, I’ve been in good communication with Stewart (the primary developer of Kiri:Moto) for some time now and as a result there have been some great new features to emerge in Kiri:Moto which will be pushed to CAMLab as well in the coming months.
He’s been hard at work and in pushing out new features at an explosive rate (you can see his progress here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/kirimoto/) I was wondering if there was any one of you who is already using Kiri or CAMLab, or are interested in giving them a try, who would be willing to provide a hand at evaluating the new features and reporting any bugs. Our crack team can even have a team name and a slogan
These are some of the new features which could use some feedback:
- New help window
- ‘Free layout’ and ‘auto layout’ control (explained better here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUXCljtCt4s)
- Stock size as an offset
- New origin visualization and generation, especially applied to stock and multiple 3D objects
- New metric/ imperial unit implementations across the board
- New tapered tools option (v-bits)
- More customizable cutout tabs (number and placement)
So yeah, anyone game?
This post will be used as a discussion thread of anyone’s findings or feedback
