Great tool for the hobbiest (aren't we all). This is a CAM software not a CAD software as Joe's review may suggest. This is a great tool for creating gcode. Play with it, even view the tutorial to get a feel for how to make your first cuts on a CNC
Waste of time.
Randomly drawing without snaps or inferences is useless for CNC. You'll achieve better results by free-handing your router. At least it will look organic. Please correct me if I'm wrong or missed something with the software.
I really like MakerCAM, and its even possible to use MakerCAM offline.
