Vertical Cut3d

Does the Vectric Cut 3D software work with the Shapeoko Carbide Motion software? I am looking for a easy cam software for my 3D work .

Newbee question

Hello,
I am familiar with the 4 axis mills used in the jewelry business and interested in the Shapeoko CNC router for wood. My question is can the Shapeoko cut out a bas relief of my drawing of the dog head posted? I would like to do wall ornaments of animals I draw.
Thanks in advance, George
