Hello, Just purchased a small cnc machine for turning pens and other pieces. Also want to make plaques and similar items. I figured cnc is the way to go for pens but it is hard finding info about creating. I've seen youtube videos, so I know it can be done, but am having difficulties of where to start. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am comfortable with corel draw, photoshop and illustrator.

Hi Phantom Wolf,

Those are drawing/sketching/illustrating programs.

You need CAD/CAM....Computer Aided Drafting/ Computer Aided Manufacture. You might find it possible
to import a picture of what you want into a CAM program but generally you'll have to draw a technical
diagram, usually using the same program.

If you have not had a look try Fusion 360....its free.....if you had to pay for it you would be up for thousands!

Have a look also at Machs Wizards, it will  give you an idea of whats required to convert an idea into
usable Gcode.

Hi, this is DebbieC and I have been LEARNING Mach3 for over a year. I have engraved a couple of things.   All of a sudden my files won't open in Mach3.  Any suggestions? I did not change any settings. Thanks a bunch.

Hi' my name is Vincent. I have been trying my hands at many things and have become interesting in DIY CNC machines for a while. For the past year and a half, I started building a machine. Building the frame is easy for me because of my experience as a welder. However, the electronics are scary. I became a part of this forum to be in the company of like-minded individuals. I'm here to learn, and in whatever, though be it meager way pass on any knowledge I may have.

Hi everyone, my name is Eugene and I am from Herefordshire in the UK.  If you know a "Newbie" then add ten to the scale of 'Newbie' and that is me.  I became interested a few months ago as I tried to use a router to make a house sign, I thought there must be an easier way so a lot of money later here I am.  In one sense time is not on my side but on the other I have loads of it. Slow and steady, read a lot (on this Forum) and hopefully I might get somewhere. I have got a CNC 3040T which I bought from a German Company.  As well as the CNC i have really gone into woodworking spending a lot on Contractors Saw Bench, Router and Table. No more manual for me then.  Great to be here, it would be handy if there were other people around Hereford who were able to maybe visit and advise.  I love reading all the Posts and look forward to becoming an 'expert' before I croak.
