Does SigmaNest actually control the machine or is it just the CAM side of the equation? In other words does the SigmaNest do the job that lets say Mach3 or linuxCNC would do or is there something else at work here?

The SigmaNEST is just a CAD / Nesting software that takes a .DXF and converts it through the post to Gcode. There is our software / GUI that then uses the Gcode to operate the table.

The controls are a combination of us and Machine Kit. The GUI of the controls is ours.

We purchased our table in early February 2017. Why was sigma nest not part of our package? Why the change?
We received sheet cam instead.

Also curious why it did not come with SigmaNest software. The sheet cam only has 3 basic shapes so you cannot even generate circles without using a 3rd program as well as cutting off corners.
