    Question Which program should I use

    Hello friends, I will copy the machine in the link. For this I need 0.5-1 centimeter precision. Now I can use the blender program, but it is difficult to determine the centimeter in the blender. Which program can you recommend?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pwoy_Ur-GM&t=1s ---------------- that is youtube link

    Using a CAD type program such as Fusion 360 (free for hobbyists, purchase required for commercial use) or OnShape (online, free) or FreeCAD will provide far better results than blender for an engineering project such as yours. If you are of a mind to embrace programming, OpenSCAD will also allow you to generate precise models.

    lmao - so that's where all the fake cigarettes come from.

    It would be a tough ask to do that in openscad - mainly due to the sheer number of seperate elements.

    I wouldn't discount a complex device from OpenSCAD. I don't have those skills but one of our makerspace members who has programming background constructed an entire CNC milling machine using the program.

    7 thousand dollars is requested for this machine, but I believe that I can produce it cheaper. My goal is to produce for $100. In addition, this machine fills tobacco, not fake

    that's fairly easy - apart from the main carriage - you're basically one joint - many times.
    One of our forum members made one.
    And I can never remember their name.

    The tabacco isn't fake - the cigarettes are :-)
    We have fake cigarette seizures regularly over here.
    Although, If were a smoker and the tobaccos was as loosely packed as in the video - I'd definitely feel short changed.

    Mind you, a machine like that, in a country where marijuana is legal - could be a real money earner :-)

    So on balance - yes you could make it with openscad. I'd have to as it's all i use :-)

    How big do you want to make it - the one in the video is almost industrial sized and would be tricky to print. Although you wouldn;t need to print the hopper. A cheap plastic box would do the job there.
