I won't have my machine for a few weeks and in the interum i'm ramping up my design process for cnc'ing. I've read several topics about noobie's frustration with finding waste board and clamping plans. Maybe this is an appropriate solution. Youtube: Marius Hornberger: playlists: cnc projects. He has a couple videos with templates that may solve this. Will someone check this out and verify it's plausibility please. I don't have my machine yet so I can not. Similar topics that appear as I'm writing this do not look like a similar system (searched topic 1st). Maybe this is a good idea. Sorry but I don't trust my linking skills. When I was in engineering 20 * yrs ago, my chief engineer call CAD an electronic Leroy machine. Thanks for helping an almost extinct Dos Dinosaur.
