Ok, all let me preface this by saying I’m a absolute newbie when it comes to rhino so bare with me in my caveman terms trying to get across my issue.
We currently use Rhino V5 and RhinoCAM to send models to CNC Mills.
What im trying to accomplish is having rhino outline the object (using MeshOutline) and have the mill use this as a “cutout” path for the object.
Issues i have ran into is mesh outline isnt really creating a object to mill.
After using mesh outline i used extrude closed planar curve (my thinking was make the outline a object and it will work) this didn’t work as its the same size as the object to begin with.
After these attempts i used the above steps and then tried scaling the outline that had been extruded to be very slightly larger than the original outline was. This just didn’t work the way i thought so kind of a dead end with this attempt.
So I am just trying to get a outline created and maybe have it scaled 2 or 3 mm wider than the original to have the mill ‘cut’ out along the outline.
Any help is greatly appreciated, and again sorry for the caveman terminology to what I am trying to do.
