The hardest part of learning to operate my CNC was learning the software.  I began with free, open-source programs like F-Engrave but my projects soon outgrew its capabilities.  Like many others I purchased Vectric’s Desktop. 

As good as Vectric’s training videos are, they seemed to assume I understood terms and concepts I didn't.  I ended up with more questions and less answers.  Then, I stumbled across a comprehensive training program that unlocked Vectric’s Software for me.

Kyle Ely’s, Learn Your CNC, (, breaks Vectric’s software down into bite-sized concepts and lays them out in a logical, easy to follow format. Best of all, his course is set up so that you can learn at your own pace.  In addition, you can review the material as often as you want. I recommend it to everyone.

If you own or are thinking about buying any of Vectric’s programs, you will benefit from checking out Learn Your CNC for yourself.  I bought the Vectric Master Training course and love it. You will too.

Unleash Your Creativity,
