ARE THERE ANY FREE CNC PROGRAMS THAT USE INVENTOR SOLID PARTS?

 I am trying to get into the world of CNC and use my inventor solid part.

 

 

 

 

Free and imports native Inventor files... HIGHLY doubt it

 

However there are free CNC programs that will import step or iges files.

I've used heekscad/cam for linux before and it worked just fine importing a step file to run in my DIY EMC2 based CNC machine.
