Confused - Ottumwa, IA

Anyone, especially Gerald,
I have started gathering parts and will be ordering laser cut and bent parts soon. My dilema is where to start when it come to software needed. I have BOBCAD-CAM and Mach3. The confusion comes when figuring out what combos are best for the value.

What are the combinations that the reders are currently using? I am really not versed on CAD/CAM software. I do however have experience with Robotics/automation, but sadly not the windows based wares. Can anyone help here?

Thanks

If you have bobcam and Mach , you are ready to cut. I think I have a good post file for bobcam. Bobcam will cut most things that you would want to make 2D or 3D . You can draw in Bob and setup and run your tool path.Then you would save that file to a disc , then run it in Mach. When you get ready and you need some help just let me know.

Thanks again
