General Mach Discussion / A very NEWBIE question
« on: March 13, 2007, 04:28:51 PM »
  I've been a long distance admirer of lathes and milling equipment. With the birth of my daughter, I find addressing those old desires again.

With that motivation, I started looking at some low cost options in the construction of a 3-axis CNC milling machine. I have only 3 questions, for now, to ask.

I've noticed that there are many free CAD and CAM options. My concern is with conductivity. Do all CAD programs provide a standard file type that all CAMs can use?

Do all CAM programs communicate through the NMC protocol?

G-Code is generated by the CAM process and that is sent to the motor drivers?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
