Why don't you program it yourself? It's pretty easy to do. I would if I still have access to a CNC.

 

Edit:

I couldn't imagine a Cnc without software. So you have access the the program. You just need the tool path.

 

And FYI, there are a lot of CNC machines out there and a lot of software. You could give DIY'ers more info on what software your using.

Then you don't need to use it. You can just buy a plank of wood and get some hole saws. Not every cup needs to be 100% perfection.

 What interpreter is the CNC machine using? And is this a CNC router or a CNC mill?

 

How much free time do you have on it?

 

What tooling do you have access to? end mill? diameter? ball end mill? keyway cutter?

 

You can see this video on my toolpath that should give you ideas of how to approach this situation.
