I finished my first project; made a coaster set out of scrap flooring material. I struggled a bit with CC as I wanted to import the animals graphics as .png files. I also tried Fusion 360 but it was way too complicated; with time maybe I can master it.
I ended up buying VCarve Desktop and run it on my MacBook Pro using Parallels. I love the program; it’s really easy to use and tool paths seem easier and more features than MeshCam. The biggest challenge was selecting the format of the GCode export. I found that X-Carve (inch) selection as the post processor works so far.
