project, build the 3d model or create the vectors for the robot to machine. Whether
we are carving ice or EPS Foam carving. The material difference comes into play while setting up
the tool settings for rates of cut and step overs. The right software makes things much
with the type of projects we deal with on a daily bases. A lot more thought and preparation
is required when using automated machinery as CNC routers and milling robots.
The conversion from sculptor to programmer is not always easy.
Give a sculptor a block of material , ice or foam and away he goes…
drawing the template lines on to the media and starts carving.
Not so fast with machines. You have tell the robot everything you know about carving the
sculpture using the milling software as your interpreter. Sometimes the translation does not
work as you expected and it requires hours of testing and programing new technics to get the
results you are aiming for. Once you have gotten the process worked out.
Duplication of a project is a breeze. That is where automation makes a big difference.
Producing the same foam or ice carving over and over again, makes for a happy robot owner.
