Here is a video of typical work flow when working with your machine. I use 3 different softwares to cut my pieces.
- For 3D objects i use a free version of Google Sketchup.
- Tool Paths: You will need a “Tool Path” software, there is many free versions but i use V-carve
- Mach3 or similar to send your instructions to the machine. You can purchase Mach3 on my www.cncmaskiner.org website.
If you are using Google Sketchup you will need a plugin to convert your 3D objects to .dxf format, go here for a free plugin that does this: http://www.guitar-list.com/download-software/convert-sketchup-skp-files-dxf-or-stl
If you need help with your drawings or preparations of your files i can help you with that. Contact me for more info.
