    I am currently using Fusion 360 for my 3D printing. This question pertains to a C-Beam with an X-Pro controller. Do I need any other software to interface with the X-Pro?

    You need one of the many gcode senders or other software such as estlcam. Using Grbl · gnea/grbl Wiki · GitHub By the way, this entire GRBL Wiki is extremely valuable, if you have not read it yet. It will save a lot of time and answer lots of questions.

    I like GRBL Panel. It is simple and works great. I have been toying with estlcam the past few days and it is intriguing.

    It is more like an app. Unzip it and there is a little icon that you double click and it should open. I send a copy to my desktop.
