CNC & SolidCAM
A part on the workshops band-saw snapped as shown in the photos below. The saw was regularly used by students and it was important to get it working as the students needed it to complete there qualification. According to the supplier it was going to take 8 - 12 weeks to get a replacement which would be to late for the students. I use Solidworks to design a new part, SolidCAM to produce a program for the CNC machine. I then used the CNC machine cut the part and finished off by tapping some holes by hand.
