Hello I am looking at buying a new Shapako pro. Never used a machine but retired and want to make stuff. Is this an easy machine to learn? I am a bit scared. I dont know where to get pictures to make plaques that I want. Dies anyone know if we can find a picture of a plaque to make on the machine?

The two programs used are Carbide Create:
and Carbide Motion:
We have some videos and other materials at:
