    I'm pretty sure bjj (Ben Jackson) has detailed instructions. Have you read them?

    Inkscape with a gcode extension is probably the best free s/w. But, your toolpath should depend on your controller.

    A TinyG/Smoothie with a Raspberry Pi running Octoprint will have different requirements to an Arduino/RAMPS to a Chinese generic DSP board.

    As you haven't built your machine yet, I would try out every bit of software you can find to help you choose what you want in a controller.
