  • STEP 1 Switch to CNC 4-axis

  • STEP 2 Import the file and adjust the size, choose the position of the model.

    • Placement Face
    • Select the chucking surface that will align one of the model’s faces

@Edwin

Thanks for the info on the rotary module.

I was just wondering, how do you create this image?
It looks like a gradient map…

The STL data is created in Fusion360, so it’s not a problem, but I still don’t understand how to shape this gradient image.

I would appreciate it if you could tell me.

Image Density = 20, which is clearer


Image Density = 1, which is blurer

@Edwin
I may have asked the wrong question.

How did you create this flattened image?

3D scan data?
Created with some kind of software?

I may just be ignorant, but I would appreciate it if you could tell me.

Snapmaker Luban algorithm will slice and flatten the STL file according to the material you set in the software.

You mean convert from STL data to flat image data!

Thank you.

What are you trying to show here? Why would someone even want to make it blurrier?

Also, there appear to be two places to set density, both under the edit and process tabs, but the only one that makes a difference is the one under the process tab.
No matter what I set the density under edit to, 1 or 20, the setting under process overrides it and the end result in simulation and g-code is identical.

I can’t see any differences between Linakge and Rotation. When i press simulate, the two modes look identical and neither are hollow. Is there any extra steps to make linkage work.

Can you supply the helix candle holder model from your demo video as a Linakge cnc pre-set?

their is a difference think rotation will mill in a rotation and work its way to the where it supposed to mill where linked with cut to the center and mill from the end of the stock to the the other end and mill all in-between. i just posted a vid on facebook or linked milling the horse chess piece

Please watch this video.

Cheers
Edwin

yes this would be cool.

I didn’t see an answer here, I also see no difference in Linkage and Rotation slicing. Both simulated models have no hollowed areas. Anyone have a idea on this?

Hi, there should be a problem with the simulation. The hollowed area will be carved when Linkage mode is used.
