Software falls into several categories. The ones that you'll interact with most are the ShopBot Control Software that runs the tool and Design software that you'll use to create your part files. You'll probably also interact with other software like Utilities that might not be used to create Part Files but are useful in working with them, and Specialty software packages that serve one particular purpose...cabinetmaking, boatbuilding, etc.

This is the software that runs your ShopBot..learn to get the most out of it
Design software lets you be productive and create the thing you want to make...VCarvePro, Corel, Rhino, etc
Some software just does one special thing, but hopefully does it well. Cabinetmaking, Sign software, etc
Programs that just make your ShopBotting easier. Convertors, Editors, etc
Personal tools
