Description

Experience Level: Intermediate
McNally and Finlay require a software programmer to develop a budget integrated Cad/Cam system (focused around Google Sketchup), using existing commercially available Cad and Cam programs. The software must provide a simple UI and be easily modified to fit the user's needs.

Details:
Integration of an existing cam program (eg. Vcarve Pro), as an add on/plug in within the Google Sketchup interface (or visa versa)
- Allow for dynamic changes of dimensions in Sketchup, to change the existing toolpaths within the Cam program. This will allow for a library of products to be created, and edited on the fly, for mass customisation.
The Cam add on must:
- Create 2.5 axis toolpaths
- Provide True Shape nesting of multiple components
- Generate a G code for machining
- Automatic generation of product cost, machining time, assembly time, labour cost, etc are also required
Suggestions of possible Cam programs to be integrated welcomed.

Skills required:
Ruby API
C++ API
JavaScript
Knowledge of integrated Cad/Cam programs essential
Experience customising Cad and/or Cam programs
Experience programming Ruby scripts
