Complete Newbie Help With Software

I just got my Crossfire Pro put together. It is April 2021 model. I will mostly be cutting small predesigned cutouts (1”- 12”). I dowloaded Fusion 360. I am getting ready to download Fire Control Crossfire Gen 2 Driver. Is this the right driver for Fusion 360 and my machine? Is there any specific way I need to download the fire control driver?
Thank you!

If you need one on one assistance, send me a message. I can get most people cutting in an hour using svg files and Sheetcam.

The files we have are dxf files. Can Sheetcam cut from dxf? Also, how soon could you have the time to help and how much does it cost?

I can convert the files I have to svg.

Yes it can. The preference here for SVG is that it’s a more modern format. DXF is a pretty universal standard but it’s old and something of a “least common denominator” format. It was created before there were good, inexpensive PCs that could do complex calculations quickly so there isn’t support for things like true curves, they’re a pseudo-curve created using lots & lots of straight line segments for instance. That’s why you’ll see lots of nodes in your files and sometimes the cut isn’t a smooth one. But it works.

DXF’s limitations don’t impact you much if you’re doing parts but if you’re doing artwork designs it can stumble - that’s why folks often have issues with not being able to get a toolpath defined in Fusion.

Thank you so much!

Yep, what James said. $50 an hour is what I charge.
