SheetCam CAM Software

SheetCam is an easy-to-use 2-1/2D CAM program that converts 2D DXF files (from CAD programs such as AutoCAD, LibreCAD, Inkscape, and others) into the G-code to run such tools as the Tormach CNC vertical milling machine and the CNC plasma cutter.

It is available on all of the workstations in the common room.

Benefits

  • Accepts .dxf files–the most common 2D CAD file format.
  • Easy to use.
  • Use the same tool for several machines.
  • 2D and 2-1/2D

Limitations

  • Does not generate G-code for 3D operations (i.e., where the Z height is continuously varied).
  • Input is limited to DXF, HPGL, and a few others.
