Hi,

besides the videos most information is displayed as tooltip in the program itself.
Just rest the mouse pointer above whatever control you’re interested in and it will give you detailed information.

2 sided machining depends on your strategy.
If you choose 3d machining with a STL file you basically just enter stock material size and Estlcam will do almost everything else automatically.
You just flip the part after machining the first side around its Y-axis (like a book page), touch off the left, front corner again and resume machining for the second side.

If you choose 2d / 2.5d machining with .dxf files (which is the better strategy if the part itself is machinable in 2D / 2.5D style) there are more things to consider. Hard to explain in plain text – maybe I’ll do a video about this soon.
