I am planning on building my machine as soon as my house is finished being built. In the mean time, i would like to start designing the things i wish to CNC. (kinda backwards i know) I have some experiance in Autocad, just the basics. I have a trail version of inventor 12 i have been playing with and so far i like it. I can make simple things, Round clocks, rectangle signs etc. But when it comes to odd shapes like say a beer bottle, or a logo, im lost. Can someone point me in the right direction to find some how-tos or video tutorials? I found the one in the "Videos" section of the forum, and i sucessfully drew up the YOUTUBE 2011 coaster. Also, what CAM software do yall suggest?
Thanks ahead for your help
