DMPB The Pole Lathe

Design – Model – Print - Build - The Pole Lathe. This book shows how to reverse engineer a simple object in order to create the CAD programming required to enable a small scale copy of the object to be 3D printed. The process covers initial consideration, breakdown into component parts and generation of the individual CAD files for each part. The rational and specific requirements for each part and the overall model is detailed as the build progresses, together with an analysis of the programming methodology. The CAD system used is OpenSCAD, an open source programming system that is freely available, has a small learning curve and can be installed on most standard computer platforms. The content of this book, with its multi-disciplinary hands on approach will be found instructive to the Hobbyist, Students and those taking their first steps in Computer Aided Design for 3D printing. Subjects covered:- Modular approach to reverse engineered structured design and workflow organisation. Introduction to CAD programming through practical application. Layout of instructional content and accompanying illustration. Guidance on using OpenSCAD to generate files for 2D graphics and 3D models. 3D Printing of a quarter scale working Pole Lathe. Construction of a full scale working Pole Lathe.
