Hi Adrian,

As per our discussion at the meetup, the design software that comes with 
the Handibots of the Makerspace at the U of Ottawa is called VCarve Pro 
(http://www.vectric.com/products/vcarve-pro.htm). This software lets you 
do your design (though you can import existing ones), define the 
toolpath and finally you can preview the result and the complete path of 
the tool.
It was my first time playing with CNC, and I must admit that it is a 
pretty nice software. On top of that they have tons of in-depth 
tutorials (http://support.vectric.com/training-material/vcarve-pro)
