Rev. Numbers
« on: September 18, 2007, 10:40:41 PM »
Hello All,
Art and I are now going to make the Rev of Lcam the same as the Rev for Mach3... If there is an Update to Lcam and the Rev of Mach3 did not change we will add a .*********x to the Lcam number. I hope this can fix the Rev problem.


thanks
Brian

Hi,
I noticed that in one of the posts you were involved in you mentioned that Lazycam
is "not bad".
I have to tell you, after paying the money for the right to use it I'm
really disappointed.
It's ok if you import 1 or 2 lines or arcs but after that it's a royal pain in the A**
I just tried to import a profile that was all connected and that was made up of
42 lines and arcs. Just to cut this thing it would take 3 hrs of messing with it because
when you import a dxf file it just imports 42 separate lines and arcs, nothing is
consistant. I would have to change the direction and order of every line - arc.
What is going to be done with this.

I know of about 15-20 major problems that need to be fixed.
It's been out so long and no one really gives a crap about really fixing it.
Why?

Please let me know,
Brian Hendrickson

For $75 we should be getting at least a little support, might be time for a class action to get a refund, I have been beating my head against the wall several weeks now and there are as Brian H. says numerous problems that need to be fixed or refund our money and turn it loose as a beta program where things might get fixed.

Just sent this off to Scott Nichols:

Scott,

I am really disappointed in Lazycam, I thought I would get some documentation with my $75 and not just added "features" that barely work. I want a refund, tired of banging my head against the software wall, no docs, no real support and hearing that no new versions are forthcoming. You guys really need to clean this program up and get a better user interface where we don't have to click on 16 tabs to see all the parameters and then still after a dry run and cleanup of code ruin parts.
