This software came highly recommended from friends that already own CnC's. I downloaded the trial first and it is very easy to use. I can't swing (or really justify) the Pro version now but will in the future. Easy to use, easy to understand and very powerful. Spits out ready to use g-code. Highly recommend!
Hey guys , this is a really great product for OpenBuilds to offer, lots of KOOL features taking your designs to another level..
