have received a demo of Stlworks 2, it is a good software.

I am traying to use the slabber function, It seems like only the totempole
function is available in this demo version is it right???.

Otherwise I will like to know how to use it, and also to know if is it
possible to make division including vertical planes and horizontal planes
together.

Hi LUIS,

The StlWork demo is a full working version of the program. The slabber is documented in the help file under Creating Tool Paths-Slabber. The function is controlled by the Max Height value on the Cutting Strategies dialog. (the default is 1000 inches or mm which is larger than most machine Z envelope extents). Set this value to a small value and the program will generate multiple cnc files. One for each slab.

The Slabber can work with a rotated model, and by limiting the X-Y extents can also make some additional cuts possible. It will not however finish the sides of these slabs. That will have to be prefinished and precisely located for the slab to fit with the others. This will not be automatic, but all the toolpaths can be generated at once by making multiple slab/sections, each one being a separate cutting strategy. You will however need to be careful as the zero point of the program does not change for each section. The global coordinates can be used but each set of slabs can have only one reference zero point.

Best Regards,

Fred Smith
