Setting up the Roland JWX-10

Replaced by: [22 April 2014]

Mill has previously been set up and working with PC and supplied software - so good initial baseline.

However user documentation is not very good past just setting up machine and installing software.

Machine Specifications at

Acceptable materials Resins such as chemical wood and modeling wax (metal not supported)
Modela software allows for a range of materials when building cutting paths for the JWX-10 including Brass and Aluminum. This will need to be tested.
