I am using Mach2 from 2004-05. It is the trial version. I am interested now in using it commercially and getting the licensed version to make pantographs in aluminum plate from a customer provided image, if this is possible. Can some kind soul show me some examples of what is possible? I have seen examples on the web of intricate patterns having been turned into carved wood, acrylic aluminum, etc. Also I am curious how the software deals with different colors. Does it convert color to tool depth? Thanks in advance for any help!

Use Mach3 if you can and it will come with a free version of Lcam. In lcam you can make a file from an image, it is doing this by converting to gray scale and applying depth to the shade of gray... Try it, it is free ;)
