Could anybody advise what other softweare i should get to go with Mach3.

I have almost finished a cnc conversion on a little Harrison horozontal mill. I have my steppers running with a Geko 540 on  Mach 3 demo.
What more should i get? Mach3 add-ons,Newfangled mill wizards Lazycam pro?
What is the best low cost drawing program and cam program.
I need the minimum to do 3d machining.

What sort of budget do you have to buy software?

MeshCam/MeshCam Art is very reasonable for 3D drawing/machining.

Just because I'm a Global Moderator, don't assume that I know anything !

Hello Budman

My budget is perhaps $2000 Australian dollars. This is for comercial use so I cannot latch onto student or hobby deals.

Thank you .
