I'd recommend downloading the Free Trial version of VCarve Pro and
also watching the Free Training videos that are available from the
Vectric web site.
The video tutorials will give you a good overview of how to use the
software for designing and cutting signs a carved projects
See > Aspire Tutorials
Trial Download > Download Trial Versions and Tutorials
The Trial version will also let you save toolpaths to cut the supplied
Evaluation files on your own CNC router.
There's also lots of useful information on the Vectric Forum where
users talking about machines, tooling, materials, etc.
