This group has been a great support for my start of CNC’ing. Thanks. Here is another question.
I purchased my XL about 1.5 months ago and everything has been going along a normal learning curve. Setup a waste board, made some clamps, tool tray, simple stuff. The ultimate goal is to be able to make signs, some inlay pieces and maybe some topographical carvings. I am very familiar with Fusion 360 (personal) from my 3D printing (and some from my job). I’ve been using Carbide Create and Carbide Motion. Create is not bad for starting out but I have hit the limit. To move to the next phase I will have to move up a level.
I’ve looked at CC pro, V-Carve, inkscape, etc. in addition to Fusion. I am totally confused. There are so many features, limitations and options. I not don’t even know what most of these things are. I don’t mind paying a modest price for software but $700 for V-Carve Pro is too high but free (Fusion) has limits (no multi-too l and speed limits). I am not looking to make a living at this just hobby making gifts and such.
Given my modest goals and budget can anyone give me some advice at which one they would would recommend?
Thanks in advance.
