Milling data from relief.
Milling data can be created in the Relief program from data of different origins. The relief can be imported or opened in various formats, designed in ReliefVTR or the relief data can be a combination of imported data and relief design. Here the creation of milling data from an imported STL is described.
Import the STL data (here Lion.STL). For import, the STL surfaces are displayed as graticule. The surfaces can, as required, be rotated in 3 axes. In this case all angles remain at 0 (the shape finds itself in the correct position for milling). Confirm the angle input. The program shows the determined relief position and extension. Also confirm the display. The data are imported into the relief
The complete shape is to be milled. For this the tool must be able to reach all points in the relief. In order to guarantee this, a wide border is necessary around the head. For this the relief is enlarged using Relief file . Modify frame . Limits . Add border. For input see Graphic.
Input add border:
For the milling path calculation on relief select the functions in Relief AutoCorr. An automatic milling path calculation for several tools can be found in Relief AutoCorr . Relief AutoCorr.
For the milling path calculation a premilling and finishing tool are employed.
The setting of the parameters remains unchanged.
Check the calculated milling paths using Norm + Zoom projection.

For this you require an Internet connection!
To load the data click-on the description below the respective image (e.g. ashtray.HRP). If an Internet connection exists, the display File download appears. Here select SAVE and the target directory on your harddisk.
