whats best and easiest CAM software 4 mach3 mini mill
« on: March 02, 2018, 07:08:38 PM »
  I am total newbe. Have only one or two projects to do but it seems i may need a CAM software. I will be basic dishing out the end of a round 1 inch dowel that is cut on a 45. What CAM software would be easy for a lamebrain ?  Thanks for your input and time.

If the part you are trying to make has say a spherical concave surface then it is likely it will need to be modeled in 3D first then CAM creates the toolpath. Fusion 360 can do both but you are in for a pretty steep learning curve. CAM and 3d modeling though are what has made CNC practical for one off parts, so the effort is worth it.
