Mechanical Design Engineer


Is it possible to use mesh cam on my laptop to drive a cnc Bridgeport mill? How complicated is this to achieve? What steps are involved? I am a Mechanical Design Engineer and despite using 3d cad all day every day my IT / controls knowledge is limited

(apologies, incorrect email in my initial question application)

It’s not complicated.  Basically, you need a post for MeshCAM that is compatible with the CNC Controller on your Bridgeport.   Once you have that, you can load the g-code generated by MeshCAM with that post into your Bridgeport and run it.

Visit the MeshCAM forums and work with them directly to track down a post.
