I'm looking for a 3D CAM Software Development toolKit for Windows.
I need to create an interface to my program that:
* can produce a 3D shape in raster vector mode from a bitmap.
the shape can be edited into multiple Z slices each of them
with some height and width.
* each of the 3D Z slices can be further segmented into 3D rectangles
of a given width (vector spacing). I would like to have some control
as to how these segments are generated and how/where they are placed.
* a set of CNC instructions can then be generated to machine off
each one of the Z slices/segments until the 3D shape is entirely removed.
Ideally, the CNC instructions should have a simple syntax with
a minimal set of commands (like move x,y,z,speed ) that are then
stored in a text file.
Any recommendations. I'm thinking about evaluating the TurboCAD SDK,
but I don't know it if does what I need. I'll take 3 out of 4 :-)
