Introducing Cut Preview

Some time passed by since the last update. Time in which further elaborated developments occurred. One of the most interesting feature is the preview of the final cut result.

The entire process of cutting an object is simulated based on all previously determined cut paths. The resulting 3D model can then be used to evaluate the quality and to optimize the settings before any real material is cut.

Two examples are presented here:

This is the well known Stanford-Bunny which is used as source model for calculating cut paths of.

Based on all 32 cut paths a preview of the expected cut result is calculated which is shown here.


For another example the 'Prometheus Sacrificial Engineer' from thingiverse was chosen.

The result of the simulated cut process with 16 cuts is shown here.
