    Hi, no tutorial just yet, there will be some videos soon(ish)

    Basic workflow:
    1) Use the Open button to get your file in (DXF PolyLine, SVG, Bitmaps (JPG, PNG, BMP), Gerber 274, Excellon Drill files all supported)
    2) Select the entities you want to use, and add them to a new operation
    3) Set the parameters for the operation
    (Repeat 2 and 3 as needed. Most jobs have a couple inside cuts, some outside cuts, maybe a pocket etc)
    4) Generate GCODE

    My advice, dig in and play around. Start with the Hello World example
