Will Lazy Cam Pro do any 3D.  I just purchased Mach3 and the Mach3 Mill add ons and I need a CAM program as I had to give up my Rhino CAM.  :(

I have Rhino3D and sometimes I need to cut 3D shapes.

Thanks

General Mach Discussion / Purchasing mach 3 Question
« on: March 02, 2008, 01:50:58 AM »
I am wanting fo buy Mach 3 and on the purchasing page, it has Mach3 add ons for Mill for an additional $50.00 I can not find this on the plug ins page. What is this plug in, what does it do and do I need it for the mill? I have been running Mach 3 demo for a little while and I haven't needed the Mach3 add ons for Mill so far... or at least I don't think so.

Can someone explain what Mach3 add ons for Mill is?

Thanks
Bill

Hello Guy's,

I guess it really depends on what the average time an average problem takes to solve.

I voted for the first one 5 minute increments.

Chris,

Have you seen the Hoss ATC yet?

He has built it on CNC Zone and it's on his site. Many of us are building them also.

OK well it looks like it's going to be the side of a lot more work. :(

 I have added a few pictures of the controller. There is a card in the PCI slot and the wide connector is connected to the computer and the control box. I have added a picture of the box, cord, and the back of the box. These were taken with my cell, but I can take as many and of what you would like to see with a REAL camera.

Hunt ... What do you think?

General Mach Discussion / Gerber DCS 2500 Cutter
« on: January 10, 2008, 04:20:02 PM »
Hello All,

I need some info about this cutter. The company I work for backed a company financially and the business failed so we purchased the rest of the buisnes that has one of these cutters and the software to run it. The machine is running and works great! The problem is that Gerber wants to charge us $9000.00 (yes, not a typo) because of the software that is non transferable. We stated that we gave the money to the company to purchase the cutter but it was registered in the other business name, yada, yada, yada!

Link To Cutter http://www.gerbertechnology.com/downloads/pdf/html/1view/index.asp?name=DCS2500_E

Any how all I would like to know, can I run this cutter on different software like Mach 3 or something else? Does it have to be Gerber software?

I would love to just tell Gerber to go pound sand!

Thanks

Bill

Do you have your EStop wired in series with your limit switches?
