    Hi all,

    I have been doing 3d printing for a while, I felt the urge to get into some CNC! My day job is writing embedded software for motor drives in vacuum pumps, so hobby-wise I tend to spend more time writing software than making stuff. Probably just as well, I don't have a proper workshop.

    I have just got one of the cheapo Chinese 3020 machines, but have not tried cutting anything yet. I'm not even sure how to generate Gcode for it, for printing I use Skeinforge but now I need to subtract, not add!

    Anyway, I hope to learn from you guys who do real engineering ;)

    Real engineering!

    Welcome to the forum Bob

    Once you get your little machine up and running you will be wondering how you managed without it.
