Tutorial overview: Drawing with CNC Stylus

In this series, we will show you how to complete a large drawing project from start to finish using CNC Stylus and SmartBench.

What we will make

Our project is to make a sign mounting guide. This is a drawing on a large piece of paper (this will allow us to easily drill holes for stand-offs, align and mount the sign on the wall).
