    Cnc stl

    Hi
    Is there and easy way to create Gcode for CNC from STL? Not via fusion 360 and hopefully online.

    It sounds like you're looking for a free program for basic rastering toolpaths. Try FreeMill from Mecsoft; it doesn't have a lot of the features you might expect in a professional program, but it will do the job you're asking about and it's not difficult to use: https://mecsoft.com/freemill/
