For folks who want to get authorized, here's some info:
* [[CNC Plasma Cutter|The wiki has a lot of good info about the machine]]. I recommend reading all of it: https://wiki.pumpingstationone.org/CNC_Plasma_Cutter
* We use SheetCam (https://www.sheetcam.com/index) for generating gcode. I recommend downloading the program; the demo version is limited to generating something like 100 lines of gcode, but that's the only restriction I've found. The company has a lot of good videos on youtube and knowing how to use this program is pretty critical.
