Bonjour Terry,

pour ma par j'utilise MACH.

Ensuite sur Solidworks , j'utilise Camworks

ce dernier est un excellent complément de MACH 3

J'espère avoir pu t'aider. Cordialement J-MICHEL.

Infra red. A CO2 laser is the most cost effective

No reason why not, all the parts you need are freely available, laser, power supply, mirrors, lens.

Clarinéo
are arguably the top USA laser cutter provider. However that comes at a price.
My experience with their product is that it is excellent.

If you have the skill to set up and maintain there are may cheaper solutions available from China on Ebay. BUT your going to have to do some work on it.
A mini router using a dremel is a much cheaper option.

Other options are available, I might suggest a little oil may make things less noisy.
