I got a lot of things from Thingiverse when I had my 3D printer, is there a lot on there that can be run through a CNC or is there another sight that is dedicated to CNC?September 10, 2019 at 7:44 pm #113216
That is a tough one. Really depends on what you are interested in, but yes you can use STL files. I also post DXFs there as well.September 11, 2019 at 12:03 am #113264
cutrocket is a good place to start. Pretty much everything else is monetized/pay.September 11, 2019 at 5:15 am #113308
Thingiverse is great for 3D printing, but as Ryan said you can use STL:s and DXF files from there for your MPCNC. There are some people that specifically makes CNC stuff on thingiverse. Like this guy for example: https://www.thingiverse.com/ZenziWerken/about
Aarons tip with CutRocket looks solid as well, but I haven’t tried anything from there yet.
Personally I think with both 3D printing and CNC work the most satisfying and rewarding thing is to make your own designs.

Yeah I live making my own but when it comes to complex designs I like to check there first. Thank yaw for the comments and recommendations.September 15, 2019 at 11:58 am #114209
Is etslcam free?September 15, 2019 at 12:10 pm #114211
Is etslcam free?
You can try it for free, and nothing stops you using it for free if you are willing to wait a little while on each gcode export.
You then have the option of purchasing to remove the delay and oh by the way help support the creator.September 20, 2019 at 1:56 pm #114893
Is there any sites out there that charge a fee to get files routing? I would be willing to pay if its something I cant make. Im really interested in Automotive related stuff.September 20, 2019 at 2:30 pm #114898

I think you may have a typo in there… did you mean routed? or designed?
There is a service to get stuff waterjet/laser cut: https://www.bigbluesaw.com/September 22, 2019 at 2:27 pm #115041
I don’t mind paying and supporting the creator if it’s within my budget but my wife just started premed and I have two kids so I’m building my CNC to make stuff and sell to add to my income to support my family so that’s why I ask about free software. Once I start making some money on the side from sales I will set aside a little from each sell to go towards better software and more equipment.
