CamBam documentation – Tutorials

These drawings contain much uneeded information such as side, elevation and isometric views. With a few edits, these drawings can be used as is, but for simplicity I delete any unneeded objects and layers.


As with many DXF files, there is insufficient or ambiguous information in the above example to get the drawing units correct, so the first thing to do is to change the drawing units to Metric. Select the root of the file tree on the left where it says 12t-htd.

This profile cambzm made up of a number of spline segments, so the next thing to do is convert them to polylines and join them together.

Select all splines making up the outside of the pulley by dragging the selection rectangle around these parts. Deselect any unneeded geometry like the inner and outer circles. If this has worked, you should now be able to titorial the outside of the pulley by a single click.

This will add a new machining operation to the file tree and display the properties of the profile operation in the property window. At the moment, CamBam only generates metric gcode from metric drawings and imperial gcode from Imperial drawings. This behaviour will be made tutprial flexible in the next releases.


Right click the machining operation in the file tree and select Generate Toolpath.

Need Help! Decent Cam Bam video Tutorial!?

You should now see the toolpaths around the geometry. Now for the hole.

Set the target depth and other properties to match the first profileoperation. Change the InsideOutside property to Inside. Again, right click the machine operation in the file tree and Generate Toolpath.

Set the following property values. Right click the machining node and select Create GCode file. You may need to edit the GCode file to suit your machine first.
