Software

Ultimately the software you use is up to you. The space does have a copy of Ventric vcarve Pro

Instructions can be found here https://wiki.eehack.space/index.php/VCarve_Pro_Makerspace_Edition

If you are a member, you can request a free licence which allows you to design & create the toolpaths. It will not generate gcode. For that, you will need to use one of the hackspacespace computers which has the full copy in and transfer it to it via USB.
