There is a lot to learn and share. Get a three ring notebook at Office Depot. I prefer the ones that have a zipper to close. I then got some CD storage pages for my Mill CD's.
Notebook to store original start up programs as updates need original program to up grade.

Date your projects:
This is especially important for your growth as well as for protection of your original projects. You may find a project that becomes a "bread and butter" project that is worth protecting. Early notes, set ups, milling times,
casting notes, and finishing details may make rush jobs much easier, because you saved R&D during learning times. Dates are also important should a dispute ever arise. \
Copyright is another subject, but right now date your works, so later you can see your progress.
Sign your name next to the date, and include the copyright symbol near by, a circle with a small c inside. This implies desire for copyright.
Download as many of the 3de files you can, then look at them. look at their logical placements and what others did to make models to be milled in wax. Although these designs may not be what you would make, the exercise is important, because you will see a logical progression for making a piece to be milled.
