Hello all,

I'm planning to make the CNC foam cutter from 8linx and the controller from HobbyCNC. The problem is with the software. I currently have IntelliCAD 2000 which will do DXF files but what inexpensive software can anyone recommend to translate the DXF file to the driver and what software does one use to make different cuts at each end. My example would be two airfiols with different chords at the ends of each wire? Does that make sense? Thanks.
