Hi Jos,

I haven't gotten to the point cloud conversion software purchase yet. I have been trying to find one that I can afford

MachCloud will convert your point cloud into an .stl, and it's free. http://www.machsupport.com/downloads/MachCloud.zip

You'll still need something to create g-code from the .stl.
FreeMill is free
MeshCAM and Cut3D are both good.

Thanks Ger!

I will investigate those options. I hadn't known about them. I have BobCadCam and I think it will open an .stl file and then create g-code. I really want to use the probe functions in Mach.
