    Well, I should have followed my own advise. Carveco is a great program and the pricing structure is okay but without a post processor for my Camaster Stinger it is almost useless. The generic WinCNC PPs may work but the included Cobra one definitely will not. I have the Fast Tool Change feature and the Ornamental lathe that need addressing also. Not sure where to go from here. Maybe look into the refund guarantee.

    Post processors are editable that you can adjust, then option 2, have you contacted Camaster about an updated post p ?

    Steve..
    Why are you asking about a CAMaster PostP on the ShopBot forum without asking on the CAMaster forum first? As Gary B states, the Carveco posts are virtually as editable as Vectric's are. They were basically cut from the same cloth, so to speak.

    Maybe I should ask the question on the Camaster forum but we were talking about software. Maybe the posts are as editable but with Vectric's software I didn't have to edit or adapt anything. Plus, the initial cost is nearly the same minus $400. CNC machining is not my career, just a hobby.

    Steve,
    Don't take this the wrong way but there's no need to get rammy about a post processor. It's the weekend. It's a new software company. Do them a solid and send them your working vectric post processor and ask them for help. It isn't a big deal and they'll make it right.

    Checking into the refund guarantee? Did you really just go there? Seriously?

    Bryan...no...if I have time I'll send you a little demo... you'll love this...

    FYI: Post processors are generally supplied by the Machine Manufacturer to the software company.
    Interestingly enough, there have been some issues with SB's processor in the past (not sure if they have been worked out or not) in which some files when created just had way too many lines.
    AC had been supplied a new PP by SB for the release. At the time I was trying to get it working right with SB but it wasn't resolved and I ended up using an older pp. Of course, I had no thought or reason to "slam" AC.
    There is a nice demo someone posted on the Autocad Artcam forum of 3D distortion and smudge in action. Starts with a basic vector square, raised to a dome with the shape editor, and then really gets interesting.

    Scroll down the page and you will see the video.

    I heard back from carveco on my inquiry about license transfer.
    They verified that in the case of a private sale, license and maintenance can be transferred. They did not specify if there would be a fee involved.
    Unrelated:
    I did finally install Carveco and started playing around. So far so good. I think I'm going to be very happy with this software.

    No, I really don't want to go there. Only as a last resort. It's really a great program and I was just frustrated.

    I just received an email from Carveco with an attachment containing a PP for the Stinger. To be honest, I really didn't expect a response this quick and it was truly astounding customer service. I will give it a test as soon as I can.
