Terry realize that you will also need to know what post processor to use for your table. SheetCam has some basic Post processors for Mach 3 that may get you working. Other things come into play if you have THC or a ohmic sensor. There are many different setup use by people here, if you ask questions be sure to give some info about your table to help get you going in the right direction.
