    CAM for new 5 axis machine

    HI
    I am looking for a free or affordable CAM program for an xyzbc router that the fairies have made in my workshop. I have tried the cnc toolkit but can't seem to get it to work. Can anyone suggest a program I can use. I want to try and machine wooden busts from stl files.
    Thanks

    Freecad is good and becoming better each week.The Path workbench will create code for a good range of machining operations.You need to hunt out the most recent stable version.
