I am finishing up the build and I am getting ready to start hooking up the motors and testing things out. I am trying to figure out the right software for milling/removing material as I do not need another 3D printer. I used to use Repitier for my printer and I now use Cura to slice and Octoprint on a Raspberry Pi to control my printer, so I am familiar with these. I am struggling with Estlcam as I can not connect to the arduino while testing the unit out (three steppers connected to the controller). I was able to control wit Repitier but I am not certain on the settings for the CNC vs the printer.
Do I need to buy a license for Estlcam to get full functionality? Will Autodesk Fusion 360 work? How would I set up Fusion 360 properly as it looks to be made more for printing than cutting out material.
Thanks in advance for the help.
