CAM software (Computer Aided Manufacturing) are software to generate gcode.

List of CAM software

Required Start Gcode:

All the milling operations should start with the commands that start the brushless motor:

M3 S10000 ; set starting speed
G4 S3 ;give it 3 seconds to start the brushless motor.

Required End Gcode:

all the milling operations should end with:

G4 S5 ; five seconds before stopping the mill
M5 ; stop the milling motor

If your CAM editor doesn't add those commands, open it with a text editor (ex: notepad, textedit) and add previous codes.
