    I was watching a demo video of Estlecam and it looks pretty interesting. If anyone is using or has tried it I could use some feedback. looks like it has a pretty good bang for the buck

    Yes, love it, you can use it free (until the timer gets long and you just pay) and just generate the g-code for grbl or whenever you use. I have not started using the machine controller that is baked into it yet, but I plan on it eventually.
    I had years of experience with Autocad and found Draftsite is a free perfect clone of Autocad, so i draw my DXF files in Draftsite and open them in Estlcam.

    Thanks Gary, I was rather impressed with Estlecam and buying the program won't be a problem.I'm remodeling the machine and I have to get away from the cncpro controller. I have a MK3/4 controller which estecam supports.trying to get some feedback on the MK3/4 before I wire everything up. I put out some queries on the forum but haven't gotten any response as to the ease of setup and reliability of the MK3/4
