A very easy to use piece of software to help you design parts for your Shapeoko router. Considered a CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) program, it allows you to design stuff on your stock, apply the toolpaths, then send it to your machine!
The software is bare bones compared to EdgeCAM or HSM, but yet it is very intuitive and easy to use to do just about everything you would want to do with a router on a piece of wood. It also allows you to import DXF’s… That was a huge question from other teachers.
The tutorials below are awesome… short and sweet, and will have you running your machine in no time making stuff.
Just click on the picture below and it will take you to Shapeoko’s website for all of the videos. Choose the topic you want, and watch away… We strongly suggest you watch them all before you get started! Thanks for sharing Shapeoko!
What are boolean operands, and how do I use them in RobotC?
Boolean Operands are used in programming because there are only two conditions that can be true. (Digital) On or Off, 1 0r 0, True or false… With that being said, there are many that can be used and there is a chart shown below. This chart came right from a robotc reference. For a more in depth discussion go HERE.
Here’s an example of how to use AND with an until command to wait for two conditions to be true. In this example, the Until command acts as a bouncer, and will not let the program move forward until both conditions are met. In this case, it is waiting until the Sonar sensor value falls within the range of 1 to 3.
