New 5-Axis Swarfing Patterns

The Rhino / Grasshopper CAMel plugin is now running the 5-Axis machine, generating G-Code entirely within the Grasshopper modeling environment. This supports a rapid workflow for experimentation with the possibilities offered by 5-Axis milling, such as complex SWARF patterns as

5-Axis Swarf Test Using Custom GH Component

Testing a custom Grasshopper G-Code Generator Component for our 5-Axis Mill. The component allows the Toolpath G-Code to be produced directly in Rhino GH, with vector visualization and geometry creation. Basically, everything can be accomplished straight from within the parametric

Steel Plasma Cutting

Short clip showing our combination 5-Axis mill and Plasma Cutter in operation. The ability to switch easily between steel cutting and 5-Axis milling facilitates experimentation in structural components and assemblages using a variety of materials.

PARAMETRIC STEEL

Work in Progress by Akihiro Moriya, a student in my FABCRAFT spring seminar. The steel component geometry is produced parametrically using a grasshopper definition controlled by the surface geometry. The steel is plasma-cut on our combination 5-Axis mill and plasma
