Tuesday June 10, 2014 – 2D CAD for Lasering Tutorial (Week 1 of 2)

Sure, 3D printing of STL models is all the rage. We can do that. But if you are laser cutting flats, you want to go OLD SCHOOL. Not quite as old as this 1930′s vintage drafting board, but as old as 1980′s era 2D DWG files. Join us at HIVE13 on Tuesday, June 10, for Week 1 of a two-week beginner’s tutorial on classic 2D CAD for laser work. Member Jim Dallam will take on this topic as our June “Second-Tuesday-of-the-Month” guest speaker. We will start after the brief 7:30pm business meeting. The actual tutorial will begin at 8:00pm and end at 9:00pm.

For this tutorial, we will be using the free DraftSight(R) CAD software from Dassault Systems. Here is the (download link) for the free version of this standalone, professional-grade product. Come with the software already loaded on your laptop and you can click along during this fast paced session. We will demo creating a simple geometry, then download the DXF file and cut it on the HIVE13 laser. Week 1 (6/10) will focus on the CAD work and touch on the laser. Week 2 (6/17) will touch on any lingering 2D CAD questions and have more laser focus. (<- PUNishment!)

Members, guests, first-time-walk-ins, and those interested in starting to climb the 2D CAD learning curve are welcome to come to our meeting and this Week 1 tutorial, Tuesday, June 10, at 8:00pm. (Find Us)

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of
    plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced
    but it looks like a lot of it is popping it
    up all over the web without my agreement.
    Do you know any ways to help stop content from being stolen?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.
