The two Galil plugins only differ in their method of installation. The mcGalil.m4plugw must be installed with Mach4 open and using the config/plugins menu. The file is used by unzipping the files into the Mach4 directory. Use the file type that offers you the easiest method of installation. The license for either option is the same and can be found on our licensing page.

Mill Wizard – version #2

The Mill Wizard is a stand-alone program to create G-code for milling simple parts and for doing basic operations where CAM software can be overly complex. This software fills the gap between CAM software and writing G-code manually. An illustration of how the Mill Wizard works is available on its product page.

LazyCam is a BETA-release free importer included with Mach3. It’s purpose is to import standard dxf, cmx, and other file types to allow those that do not use CAM programs to more easily generate Gcode to be run under Mach3. The Basic (free) edition of LazyCam that is included with Mach3 carries no cost, but will only output 50 lines of gcode if Mach3 is running in Demo mode.

(Note: Requires the “.net 2.0 update” from Microsoft to prevent an error at startup.)

These programs are used by developers for writing plugins and adding options to Mach3, or to interface others programmers code to Mach3’s interface.
