### Generating G-code using Fusion-360

I recently tried to use the Carvey machine to carve a geometry for the project on the Caustic phenomenon. But, the problem started when I realized that only vector format files or G-code could be imported to carry on the operation in that machine. Since the 3D geometry file canâ€™t be converted into a vector […]

### Carving on Acrylic sheet using CNC-machine

Carving is a subtractive manufacturing/machining process in which the tool scrapes out the material from the workpiece to generate the desired shape object. The process has been here for centuries; sculptures made of stone or paintings inside the caves are examples. Advancement in Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) has modernized the traditional carving process. Nowadays, Computerized Numerical […]

### Tuple in Python

Tuple is a type of data structure, which is a finite ordered sequence of entities or objects of different data types including numbers, strings, boolean, lists and other tuples. An $n$- tuple is typically an $n$ order tuple containing $n$ elements. Properties of tuple : Ordered – the items are defined in a definite positions […]

### Effects of volume fraction and filter radius

This blog post explains the significance of the volume fraction and filter radius in the Topology optimization (TO). Volume fraction (volfrac) Volume fraction is the fraction of the original volume that the geometry of the optimized structure will have. Since, weight reduction is the major goal and density of the material remains constant therefore volume […]

### 3D printing

3D printing as the name suggest is a method of creating a three dimensional object layer by layer from a CAD model. 3D printing is an additive process where materials are added to build the desired geometry, as opposite to machining (subtractive manufacturing) process in which material is cut off or removed from larger block […]

### Cloud Computing II

In the previous post we have seen What is Cloud Computing and What are it’s various types. But, you must be wondering why someone working in Computational Mechanics field needs to know about that. The answer is, we as a researcher and working professionals use various software packages to design, analyze and visualize and for […]

### Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is an umbrella term that encapsulates the computing services that are accessed via internet on-demand basis; the computing resources including-servers, data storages and networking capabilities for such services can be located at the same location or different parts of the world which are termed as data centers and are managed by the Cloud […]

### Practice problems for coding

Anything that has not been tried before seems a nightmare to start, may be that can be said for the coding as well. But, one has to start at some point and possibly this can be a good time to do so; here we will be discussing about two of the very standard yet simple […]

### Terminal

Terminal is a command line interface that lets user to access files and accomplish tasks on computer without the use of a graphical user interface (GUI). It lets user accomplish tasks without even making a single click on the mouse that makes the working more efficient. In general, what we see in Windows and Mac […]
