Greetings. I am a hobbyist and have just ordered (but not received) a Shapeoko Pro XXL. I have two questions to start off my endless list of them:
- I plan to build my own stand for the machine and would like to get started before it arrives. What table top dimensions have worked for you?
- I am looking at the confusing array of CAD software options out there. I would like software that can create a 3d portrait from a scanned 2d image. I would also like it to be able to arrange pieces from a project (e.g. a jewelry box) flat for cutout and to maximize material use.
Can Carbide Create Pro do these things? If not, are there other software options that do? What do you all use for your CAD needs?
