D&M Machinist Starter Pack

Have a DIY or home built CNC and looking for a way to add 3D elements to your projects? Are you part of a makerspace or hackerspace and are looking for a simple but yet capable piece of software to create tooling to run on your CNC? Maybe you are just interested in what CNC is and want to know more about creating tooling from a 3D model.  If any of those speak to you then you might want to check out our free Design and Make Machinist software.

D&M Machinist Starter Pack

This set of models is the perfect way to get started with our Design and Make Machinist software.  We have included 21 models: 7 models and all have 3 different styles.

"A" - Positive model normally used to make an appliqué or stand-alone project.
"B" - The "A" style inserted into a smooth dish.  The model does not rise out of the dish so it is perfect to be cut directly into a pre-made door, plaque or finished project.
"C" - The same as the "B" version except we have used a hand-cut looking dish shape.  This gives a more rustic looking version of the model.

These models will be installed into your "My Collection" section of D&M Machinist so they can be easily found and used in your next project.

If you are new to D&M Machinist you will find an "Introduction to Design and Make Machinist" video on this page or please follow this link to the video.

This set of models can also be used with VCarve Desktop, VCarve Pro or Aspire along with many other pieces of software.
