What else do I need?
CAD/CAM software

In order to get cutting, you’ll need to use your own CAD/CAM software to design and create your projects. We recommend you use Vectric VCarve Pro or Autodesk's Fusion 360 to model and CAM process your files. Fusion is free to makers, education and small businesses.

Other G Code generating CAD/CAM packages can be used.
