I sort of like LazyCam
« on: September 07, 2014, 10:13:23 AM »
I've been using the LazyCam that comes with Mach3 (the registered version).  When I have asked questions about it, I frequently get responses like "few of us use LazyCam" or "try xyz."  The thing is, LazyCam seems to be working fairly decently.

I suppose I may progress to wanting something more sophisticated at some point.

One thing I really like about LazyCam is, I use an old notebook w/ parallel port to drive my small table-top CNC, it isn't very powerful and Mach3, LazyCam, and AutoSketch run just fine on it.

Anyone else out there using LazyCam with success?

I used it for a long time and wrote the manual for it. There are better programs out there. Lazycam has some bugs but I still use it once in a while. The bugs are documented based on what I found and listed in the manual.

If somethings works for you and your proficient at using it then matters not what someone else uses. You will know when you need something better to satisfy your needs.

Yeah, I use it for making PCBs.
Quirky? Yes, but quite functional.
