Re: Excited!!

I started with sketchup but as soon as I tried more advanced shapes I was stoped by the licence that made it impossible to do some simple tricks so I changed to freecad and now I am testing 123d and actual starts to like it but I still have not decided on a good package.

Re: Cloud Based CAD CAM Software

Seriusly, I do not think that software are meant for the hobbyist CNC workshop, it is way to expensive.
