    Hi Folks
    I have been playing around with a small CAM program called Carbide Create, however I now feel I have outgrown it's capabilities.

    I have been playing atound with Fusion 360 and am sloly getting the hang of the CAD side. However when ever I look at a tutorial for the CAM side one of the first things they show is a CNC bed wasteboard for orientating your work on and setting the Z Depth.

    Do you know of one for my machine and also.. How do I use it.
    Many many thanks
    Dave

    I've been using Fusion360 for 3 years and have only used a model of my machine/vice once. Its only really necessary if you want to make your CAM aware of anything that might get in the way like clamps.

    Many thanks for that. I have built mine so that all clamps are on the outside, or easily movable on the inside.
