CNC Octopus

This project was my introduction to using CAM and CNC programming to cut complex geometries from metal stock. I surfaced modeled "Squashy" the Octopus in Solidworks and used MasterCAM to generate the g-code. The total operation was split up into 9 cutting operations, with a total of two flips and approximately 6 hours of cutting. Then the attached tabs were cut down using a bandsaw then a dremmel, and then several hours were spent sanding off tool marks.
