Design to Cut

This page covers all the methods currently used and endorsed for use on the CNC. Each flow goes through:

  • Design - where shapes are generated
  • Preparation for Cutting
  • NC (numerical code) generation

In some workflows, this may involve two or more software applications. For example - DXF files generated in Illustrator may need to be modified or re-exported from Corel Draw or Fusion360. To test or recommend workflows, please use the CAM Software Testing page.
