    Ah, sorry, missed that bit. It does not.

    Flatcam to create the gcode and Mach3 to run it, maybe?

    What is buggy in bCNC?

    I scan the surface, then I start the cnc process, the bit breaks off all the time (just the tiniest bit of it)

    so I rescan, reengrave, but loose in precision and top/bottom layer never prints the same depth

    so far I ruined tons of copper, money and patience with bCNC

    I use 20° 0.1mm bits
