That is correct and FYI another updated version is to be released in the next week or so.

Update, I wasn't sure about one of my operating systems and this is what I found.
My 64 bit laptop is running windows 10 pro  according to properties as well as PIXEL CNC 64bit version and doing a good job of it.

Not to worry,

If anyone goes to the PIXEL CNC download page the system requirements are there as well.
Fusion 360 for example has system requirements as well as many others do. I think most of us will check that before trying or buying.
Be it MACH 3 or 4 free trial version they have minimum requirements to. So it is a good idea to know your computer properties and it sounds like you do.
Most systems purchased today should support OPENGL.
I am currently running PIXEL CNC on 2 laptops and 1 pc and all 3 are 10 plus years 0ld and support OPENGL and window 7.
1 laptop with 32 bit windows, another laptop with 64 bit windows, and the PC with 64 bit windows is exclusive to my CNC table.


 I use all 3 to create  Gcode for my projects.
I also use inkscape to generate projects and import them to PIXEL CNC, works great! Mach 4 runs the code perfectly.

OK, I have rambled enough.

I HAVE STATED IN NO WAY THAT THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO LEARN CNC OR MAKE LARGE FURNITURE!!
IF I WANTED TO MAKE PRECISION ENGINEERING PARTS OR FURNITURE I PROBABLY WOULDN'T BE  LOOKING AT CNC ROUTER PROGRAMS FOR CARVING OR SIGN MAKING " MAKE SENSE?'' 
I WOULDN'T SHOP FOR TIRES TO PUT ON MY HORSE!!!!

P.S.
I DO WRITE GCODE !!!! GET IT , GO IT, GOOD!



YOU STARTED SOMEWHERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I first encountered a CNC router in January of last year and have been fascinated ever since. I had never herd of Gcode, Grbl, Mach anything, post processor etc and i jumped right in. I built my own machine!
I jumped on the internet and started searching. Now i have to find a way to connect software and machine. I came across Newfangled Solutions and mach 3. After downloading the free version and some setup my machine made some moves.
 
Mach forum is great, and everyone is willing to help.

After all my research i said to myself that there has to be a better way, a simplified process. All the pages and pages of do this do that then go here and still not have anything Gcode to work with the machine.

I found a program by accident with a simple learning curve that will give you a free trial for 32 and 64 bit windows systems and not have to spend a lot afterwards.

Check it out
