Stepcraft 420 CNC machine
« on: December 01, 2019, 07:17:59 AM »
I have just bought a secondhand Stepcraft 420 CNC machine. It came with a Dremel 4000 and an OptLaser SLH-2000 laser head.
I have installed the UCCNC software and the UC 100 motion controller and it all works.
I need help to understand what to do with it all, could someone please help here, I think I need a programme to create drawings of the pieces I want to cut/engrave/laser engrave then output these drawings as a Gcode file ?? This file can then be opened in UCCNC and cut/engraved or lasered from there ?? is that correct ??

thanks for  looking
Don W

I managed to cut this eagle head last night and gave it a coat of sanding sealer this morning.
I am beginning to understand what is going on.
