Good morning. One day in the none too distant future, I should like to try CNC machining with a small mill. The trouble, is: I am confused about the processes involved. I have been doing some searching, but have not found anywhere that has a simple, idiot-proof overview of how to start CNC work. There seem to be programmes that convert CAD straight into code, CAM programmes, G-code software and, the nicest seeming, conversational CNC (?). I have looked at the CNC Cookbook website, but found that just as confusing as it seemed to offer so many options that I could see where to start. I am happy about the actual physical machine (I am thinking about a CNC-converted Proxxon MF70 mill), but should appreciate some basic guidance on how to start learning the operation of it. Can anyone suggest a suitable site or book? I have no experience of CAD, but have coded in the past (VB, VBA, HTML and very rudimentary C++). Thank you. James.
