Maybe in the future it could be a little bit easier ;)

Here is my next project. Modular welding/work table. At last my knees and back will be able to rest! ;)
And you can get your tools off the floor! Nice project.

Therefore i guess you had to first make the instructions and after use the instructions to build the regal. Nice.

Hi all,

Lately I'm adopting freecad more and more in my workflow. It is challenging sometimes but I will keep persevering.
The FDM print came out decent. The SLS not so much have to adjust things.
This is revers-engineering job that done lately. :D

Wow very cool. Do you mind opening up a separate thread in this subform just dedicated to what you're sharing here. If you don't mind also pasting your About info along with some words about your process and workflow. Maybe even lessons learned?

Little shelf with wheels for my TV.
How it was machined can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKowJfg7mN4

The workbench is called betterCAM. A additional module for NC-Hops.
I created the shelf with help of a spreadsheet and part design elements. Those elements i assembled with constrains. After this i can create a new HOPs file for every part and create cnc tasks to it. After sending the data and cnc task to NC-Hops i am able to create NC code for our Biesse Rover A CNC machine. Then the final machining was done.

Thanks apeltauer, it looks like you're using an external workbench in FreeCAD along with another 3rd party software. Do you mind creating a dedicated post in this subforum describing what we're seeing? Maybe you can share your FC info and also some words about the process? Lessons learned, etc...
