    I was researching Trochoidal milling and came across this video by the Guy, who made the ESTLcam program. This video shows how to generate code for a curved surface, and then carve it. :)



    I'm probably discovering this program quite late, but I am really impressed by this small, useful, and above all, Cheap Program. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Agree - with how powerful this CAM package is and $50 great value.. I just downloaded the ESTLcam demo yesterday - and see that is supports thread milling, and 3D contours, V carve, etc.. also looks like ESTLCam is starting to directly support Arduino (GRBL) hardware. It would be awesome if ESTLcam and TinyG support could be integrated!

    the xbox controller for a pendent and direct control of the machine would be fantastic.

    lots of info from ESTLcam developer in this thread:
    Estlcam machine controller

    Thanks go to Florian Bauereisen for the recommendation of ESTLcam.

    Hi,
    im using Estl cam since a while now and just loving it.
    Quite easy to use.
    especially if only a few pieces to be done or for trochiodal milling aluminium.
    Bigger jobs though i still prefere cambam which is very powerfull as well - but lacks trochiodal milling.
