...and not even than good.
To clarify there is only Myself, Irving2008 and Jonathan with access to "post editing" as Jonathan has now joined us as a member of the moderating team.
Lee does this mean that all post must now run with 10mm pitch screws and run at a thousand miles an hour?If the nagging gets really bad......Get a bigger shed:naughty:
Just to add,cost of the machine is one part of the equation, software is the other.
Ran a licence for Mach3 down to 115 GBP on ebay, without a licence your limited to 500 lines of code,which might slow things down or linux EMC for free.
CAM software, its possible to go for a while on trials but eventually you`ll want to setlle on something, personally went for Meshcam, chew another 175 USD, which from my own survey is good value for what it does.There is a lot of other choices but figure around 100 GBP starting point....
CAD sotware, used Sketchup for a while for other uses, but beginning to figure its not great for conversion to CAM models, probably time to learn something more suited and eat probably another 3 figure number there....
Trials of YooFix it drivers detailed elsewhere ;-)
If anyone edits their post within about 2 minutes of it originally being posted then it doesn't display the "edited by" note.
Just look for one that you export files as a DXF.
