Hi Katoh

I think I will go for Cut2D since it has the simulating function to let me see how things are going to be cut. This will prevent some mishaps I reckon. I will need of course to learn the G-codes - so I will be able to correct any mistakes.

My router is a home built hobbyCNC one - with a regular Dremel tool to do the cutting - I guess this will be a good start to learn - once I will get the basics - I think I will go forward to a better/bigger machine.

Mistakes don't bother me - I learn a lot from them. (usually these are burnt into my long term memory :-) 

Thanks again for your wisdom.

Isaac

Hi TP

Thanks heaps for this.

As I already purchased Peter's book (still waiting) I guess this will do.

If I will find it too much for me - I will certainly go for this one.

Many thanks again

Isaac
