More recent C++ development: http://code.google.com/p/opencamlib/
Development status: this project has not been updated since 2008, a new C++ version is being planned...This project aims to create an open-source cross-platform program for calculating tool-paths for machine tools (eventually, something close to MasterCAM or SurfCAM).
Below we will have a blog-style list of screenshots as development progresses:
2008 Mar 20
First tests with Drop-Cutter together with a kd-tree for finding which triangles are under the cutter.
2007 Aug 08Initial tests with Drop-Cutter. Surface-normal data needs to be re-calculated for some strange reason. Only 5% of drop-cutter calls are useful, need a kd-tree search to speed up algorithm.
2007 July 27Rendering of STL files works:
2007 JulyThe first milestone (July-August 2007) for this project is
Working OpenGL window with pan,rotate, and zoom (exists but needs work (proportional zooming/panning etc, perspective/ortho views)) STL surface loading (ascii exists and works) Raster-finish toolpath creation using DropCutter algorithm G-code (post-processor needs to be written)
All of these components exist (sort of) by themselves so it should not take too long before we have our first rudimentary MonoCAM going!
