CNC Control Software and Home Switch

CNC is at the heart of the maker community. By using simple tools like CNC mills, laser cutters or routers, we could create anything from stencils to laser-cut jewelry. But did you know that there’s a 3 step process to CNC? Not only do you need to create a vector with CAD, we also need CAM software and CNC control software to bring the project to life. It can be difficult trying to navigate the choppy waters of CNC software.

Question:

1. So do you able to explain what types of software are involved in CNC—from CAD to CAM to CNC control software?

2. If the mounting holes align with the spacing in the aluminum rails and that laser able to cutting plastic ABS, can we use this home switch brackets for the laser machines?

Kind Regards.

These are some that I know of but

Some are free, some are expensive.
Good luck.`
