Okay, well you're well-ahead of the game and pretty much all set then --- and I'm sure many folks here will envy you the Catia license.
MeshCAM, esp. in its Nomad-specific mode is as easy as CAM gets.
So, my last suggestion is, source some stock material, prep it, and work out the last details of workholding --- in particular, if you got the threaded table might want to lay in a stock of M6 plastic bolts --- anyone know of a source of M6 plastic all thread? I'd love to have some for making up some workholding options.
