What is the best low cost or free motion controller software for 3D

I’m looking at trying my hand in the 3D use of my Shapeoko. What are the recommendation for a good 3D motion controller software that doesn’t break the bank.

Carbide Motion will send any sort of motion instructions to the machine, 2D, 2.5D, or 3D — it’s used on the Nomad which is bundled with MeshCAM, which is a 3D CAM program (MeshCAM also works perfectly on the Shapeoko, it’s just an added purchase)

The community has notes on other options at:

Ok. I guess I was misinformed then.

If you haven’t decided on 3D CAD/CAM that’s a different discussion — we have an article on using Autodesk Fusion 360 at: http://docs.carbide3d.com/software-faq/fusion360/ — if you’d let us know what sort of work you want to do we might be better able to advise you.
