Jedicut, and hot wire cutting becomes easy
“Hot wire cutting ? What is he talking about ?”
How it works ? It’s very simple !
Jedicut, a software for hot wire cutting
Jedicut is a free software controlling 4 axis CNC machines to make hot wire cuttings.
Jedicut was born after my meeting with a modeler who designed one of the first 4 axis CNC in France. He used a very basic software bridging the potential of his machine.
Very quickly, other modelers in the same case contacted me. Some had purchased hardware, then discovered that no software was compatible.
Jedicut has been designed to be simple to use, without compromising on advanced features.
Jedicut is compatible with many commercial CNC controller or DIY controller (parallel port or USB port).
Jedicut offers an open source plugin .system to add new file formats (DXF, DAT…) and add new CNC controller compatibility.
Jedicut is translated into several languages : English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian …

The CNC controller
CNC controller connects computer and stepper motors.
They are many solutions, at all prices, but be careful : they are not all compatible with the software you use.
DIY solutions, or commercial solutions, follow the guide. The community has created and tested many solutions.
The last link in the chain, the machine comes to life thanks to stepper motors. Transmitting orders generated by Jedicut, it allows to make cuttings of your choice.
There are many solutions too : DIY machine, commercial system, everything is possible. There are even hybrid milling machine / hot wire.
The last innovation on Jedicut.com is a DIY solution with 3D printed parts !
