This is my first post here. I see the Onefinity is opening up orders on Monday and I’m eager to get my hands on one. I have no personal CNC experience but I’ve been using SolidWorks for designing STL files that I have been getting printed at Shapeways or i.Materialise for quite some time. I believe SolidWorks is capable of making g-code but at the moment this isn’t something I have played with. Will I be able to do everything with SolidWorks? Or would I be better off getting another piece of software for making the g-code? If it makes a difference, I’m a PC guy and I plan on getting the woodworker version with the laser option too.
I do have a K40 laser cutter and I’m using it with K40 Whisperer software but I assume I’ll need something else for the Onefinity with the laser option.
Not sure if SolidWorks has what is needed to create what the laser option needs. Does the laser need g-code too? If I need something other than SolidWorks, any suggestions for something that should be easy to use and hopefully allow me to use the STL models I’ve already made in SolidWorks.
