Hello and happy new year to all.

I have just purchased me 1st CNC machine. :)

I was really excited but at first and now my head hurts.
I hope there are some experts out there who can help.

I intended to buy a small & really cheap machine to learn and then once i got used to the process of making things with the machine i would go and buy myself a proper one.

The aim is to cut 5mm thick MDF.
What i want to cut is 2mm - 5mm round circles. about 2 - 3mm deep.
Just small circles which arranged together to make shapes.
Such as stars or hearts.

What i have.

I have just downloaded a trail version of mach3 as the instructions said you will need to software.
Thats all the the instructions told me.

took me ages to learn that i need a design software and then i need another software which will convert that file to g - codes which i can then import to mach3 and export to the machine.

However i am having difficulty sending the design to the machine.
I imported the g - codes which i got from a software called sheetcam.
But i dont know the next step. HOW DO I SEND THIS DESIGN TO THE MACHINE SO IT STARTS TO CUT.

Below is a link to the machine i purchased.

If anyone has the time to help me out i would really appreciate it.
Ill offer a custom made t-shirt if anyone wants one. hehe thats my business so i dont mind.

Thank you for reading.
