Mainly Windows based toolpath for CNC cutting on the Openbuilds C-Beam CNC, some notes as I go along.

Software being tried

Main design

Fusion 360

Testing post processing through

Gcode sending/ control of CNC

Universal Gcode sender seems to be favourite at RML | Grbl Panel is the one suggested on the openbuilds website

bCnc seems to allow tool changes

Other

nccorrector gives another view of the gcode

Ian also suggested freemill but think this would replace fusion

Some useful videos
