    Arrow I've been using VCarve Pro for many years on a generic 24 X 24 machine I bought off

    of ebay.

    Looking to upgrade to a higher quality machine and have been looking at the desktop.

    My question is will all of my VCarve files run on a Desktop and can I use VCarve to design new jobs and run them on a Desktop?

    Bud,
    You'll have open the files, and change to the correct Shopbot Post Processor, and then save the toolpaths and file again.....Yes!

    You'll LOVE the Desktop!!

    Thanks Scott.

    BTW Loved the owl. I have a friend who would appreciate something like that. Did you do that on a Desktop?

    Care to tell me a little more about the process?

    Thanks

    Yes Bud...all on the Desktop.

    You may want to consider updating your Vectric product to a product with more features and better support.

    If Bud bought VCPro for a generic e-bay machine, he probably already Has the Full version of VCP..so he won't have to deal with the conundrum of upgrading from Shopbot Edition
    (Bud..SBEdition is exactly the same, but only has Shopbot Post Processors...and to upgrade from VCP9.519 to VCP10 was a $500 Bump as Shopbot Edition was discontinued at V10)
    IF Bud is comfortable and used to VCP already...Personally don't see a need to change if it does what he needs, and has been happy for years.
    Just keep his Full version for use on the Desktop.
    Personally been very happy with Vectric support and Forum(excluding the bump to V10 from Shopbot Edition which has already been talked to death).
    If Bud has the Full version...it's a non-issue.

    I do have the full version. Good info.

    Scott, you set the bar pretty high! Lovely work. Your passion shows up in the work you produce.

    Changing to a different tack, I've founds a couple of Desktop machines but have no idea about what a fair price would be. 1/2 of new?

    OTOH if any of you want to know the value of BMW motorcycles, I'm your guy. In the past 13 years I've owned 17 of them. There is no 12 step program for BMW motorcycle owners.

    Yep Bud...sounds like you're a hopeless case
    But as a Beemer-Holic....Desktop is ALMOST a Monza Blue
    Desktop also reminds me of my old bike....most problems were MY fault!

    On the other question it's very variable...will answer after I glue/CA/solder several Cheapo Chinese Christmas ornaments that Mom is picking up in 90 minutes.
