Really well done video Laney. How many "takes" did it take?
Even though I have been running CNC Routers for about 5 years and the DWC for 9 months, there are nuances of the software that escaped me. There is a lot of great information in this two cup of coffee video (44 minutes) I encourage all DWC users to watch. You will pickup one or two useful tricks to improve your carvings and to craft the layout faster.
