I’m looking to do a simple project with my high school engineering students. I’m looking for a simple 2D cut/project to keep the CAM as simple as possible. All of my students are pretty fluent in SolidWorks and I want to introduce them into some basic CNC work. I’m looking for something fun, not too time consuming, and something I can essentially have 35ish students do with not too much time committed in machining.
A few areas I’m looking for help on are:
- Project ideas (design in 3D, develop 2D print/.dxf, bring into carbide create/meshcam, create part, etc.)
- Easiest material to work with
- Cheapest material to work with
- Best supplier for said material
- Best end mill sets
And pretty much any other information you’d like to share. Thanks!
