HeeksCAD supports cuboids, spheres, cylinders and cones as basic 3D solids. Further geometric objects may be created by sweeping or connecting 2D-shapes. HeeksCAD makes extensive use of local coordinate systems. For example, these are used to define the drawing plane and the direction of an extrusion.

HeeksCAD supports cuboids, spheres, cylinders and cones as basic 3D solids. Further geometric objects may be created by sweeping or connecting 2D-shapes. HeeksCAD makes extensive use of local coordinate systems. For example, these are used to define the drawing plane and the direction of an extrusion. The program can be extended with additional plugins. Plugins are available for Python scripting, milling and freeform surface modelling. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

CAD / CAM with HeeksCAD / HeeksCNC
Otherwise the material melts. Drilling Example: Three holes of 4mm diameter should be drilled in a plexiglass sheet of 3mm thickness at the xy coordinates 10, 10 ; 20, 10 and 30, Coordinates can be edited in the properties window after drawing them, but this is not really easy in the current version In the object browser select points to drill Shift - LKlick : RKlick New Drilling Operation. Procede as discribed in Milling pockets, but set final depth as to transperce the material. Milling pockets Example: Rectangular pocket 10x10, circular pocket with diameter 10 and freeform pocket defined by sketch, all pockets 2mm deep, in a material that is 3mm thick Workflow in HeeksCAD Draw outlines in HeeksCAD Menu Geometry Draw Rectangle Toolbar Draw circle see picture on the right Menu Draw a sketch Notes: Don't use Geometry Ellipses, those cannot be used for a pocket operation at least not in version 1. There are 3 ways to draw a circle: through 3 points defining a center point and another point to define the radius defining a center point and entering the radius in the properties box Select objects in object browser or by selecting them with the mouse Right klick on the selected objects in the object browser New Pocket Operation The most important options are: Clearance Height Tool 20mm above the surface 2mm end mill. Milling a profile Workflow in HeeksCAD Example: Hexagonal piece, 3mm thick, inscribed into a circle of 20mm radius Draw the sketch: Menu Geometry Draw Polygon Before drawing, adjust number of sides to 6 in the property box, select center with the mouse and point to one point of the polygon.
