Blender CAM - Computer Aided Machining



Blender CAM drives computer aided machining equipment like mills. You can now export your designs and have them milled in wood, for example!

Blender CAM writes:

Blender CAM is an open source solution for artistic CAM - Computer aided machining needs.

Blender CAM is an extension for the free open-source Blender 3d package.

It has already been used for some milling projects, and is actively developed. If you are a developer who would like to help, don't hesistate to contact me.

This extension is free of charge, however you can donate to support the development and appreciate the work which has already been done.

Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-)


  1. Hahahaha, cool! Now you can make something like that carving example without having to be a wood artist and in a very short time.

  2. Bart: Thanks for BlenderNation-ifing my addon/site . :) It got 3000 pageviews today, and growing, while avarage is 200 pageviews per day, mainly from cnc related forums. ;)
    I am working on it so expect news regularly.

  3. Interesting tiltle and photo at first glance. Can't see more : Sorry to say that, but this Blender CAM link shows only a grey page and crashes interbet Explorer 9...

  4. This as awesome! I have a CNC wood router and have been waiting for an addon to blender like this. I'll see if there's some way I can contribute, keep up the good work

  5. Nice to see that my lead to Blender CAM results in such a short time to blendernation. I will try out this addon as soon as i finished my bachelor thesis and got more time for other projects. :)
