I've just acquired a CNC mill, aka an old knee mill with some CNC adaptions/conversions.
Yes, it works X & Y motions are fine, but the Z axis aka "knee" lift is not clever, and I fancy I'lll be doing a quill conversion, with a gearbox "knee" lift
I also have a manual version of the same mill, so I have my work cut out, but it's a toe in the water approach for now, and allows me to dabble. :)
I'm curious if anybody has any CAM recommendations.
Obviously lower cost would be a start, and ability to talk to Mach3Mill would be an advantage.
This is a work in progress, as I intend to upgrade the mill, to make it more precise & capable.

You can try CamBam. It's quite easy to use with Mach3.
