For anyone following this thread. Here is  an improved video camera.  Can jog around and locate with in say  +-0.002 with an inch of clearance to the piece. Should you decide to change camera settings while in the wizard, or do something you "may" loose the camera and jogging but seems like a reset takes care of it.

Ron,
What does reset do or not do in CopyCat?

The lower left corner has the standard mach e-stop or reset button. Its a plain button, probably should have made it the common red image button, then it would be more obvious.

I was wrong! the reset button was supposed to be the standard reset, actually it is 'reset feed override'. I simply selected the wrong entry on the list in screen4. Il get a fix out for that.

Hi Ron,
I got a manual of sort put together for CopyCat. It would have been further along except got hung up on
creating a circle. If an arc was done then  couldn't do a circle / if a circle was done then only circles could be done and no arcs. The circle box will not light up. Hmm..... maybe you can shed some light.  I have some comments
and will post them for your thoughts.
   
Attached is the manual for night time reading.

The manual and future updates will be put into the members docs as a new topic.

Rich, thanks for the manual, I was just using Copycat last week.  I too was using a video camera and could locate items within +-.002".
