Hi All,

I'm completely new to CNC. I've been toying with the idea of getting a benchtop CNC machine for a while. Had a bit of a bonus from work, so went ahead last week and bought a Genmitsu ProverXL4030. It fits the space i have perfectly.

Built it Thursday and made some simple test cuts yesterday. Planning to do more today. Just getting my head around the various CNC bits - any recommendations?

I'm planning on using Carveco Maker and Candle or UGS. What software do you guys use for design / control?

My main areas of interest will be woodworking jigs, gifts, boxes, inlays, signs and the like.

Looking forward to learning plenty from here, and eventually contributing where I can.

Apologies in advance for the daft questions I will undoubtedly raise (I will search the forums first ).
