Hi my name is John, I teach Product design and Technology (wood) to years 9,10,11 and 12.
I am hoping to purchase a CNC or Laser cutter for the school in the next year. I have however, very little skill in using CAD programs. I was hoping someone could suggest a good program (i.e. Fusion 360, Auto desk, google sketch up, etc…) that would be able to work with one of these machines that I would be able to teach my self or do a course in to help me up skill. I would also be teaching the students to use the program as well.

Further to this if anyone has any suggestions/preference/experience with either a laser cutter or CNC machine that would be great.

Kind regards.
