Hello all. Been lurking for quite a while trying to gain more info on which software to buy. I am in the process of getting the parts to build a CNC router table setup (thanks to Mr. Jan Rowland for steering me in the right direction on hardware) and plan on ordering the CAD program first to make sure I have the brainpower to be able to use it. (At my preset age, this is a big if.
I just about took the plunge and ordered Rhino as I have seen a lot of positive info about it and that the learning curve was better than most. True? I have also read where some changes had to be made after loading it into the CAM program to get the correct G-code generated in some cases. I might not have understood this correctly, so not sure.
I plan only cutting/engraving flat stock, wood, plastic, copper. 2D Nothing fancy.
My questions, is Rhino a good choice for someone that has no experience with CAD and what CAM software would be the best “fit” for it. And any other software that might be needed.
Thanks for any input/suggestions.
