You can then Download HSMXpress here www.hsmxpress.com to toolpath the part.

There are some great youtube videos to show you how to use HSMXpress here

I want to thank awhatmough for pointing out the above link to HSMXpress over on the 'Inventor' forum, but I wanted to repost here for Solidworks users. I have downloaded and installed HSMXpress, been through the tutorials, and generated g-code. Very simple, especially if you are used to solidworks commands.

Wow, this would be great. I'll give it a try and ask questions if I have any. What machine have you used this program to cut with?
