I have a CNC Piranha that came with the laser cutter. I can test the laser but I can't carve with it. The Guide says I need "Post Processor CNCPiranha-laser (inch) (tap*), but I don't have it. Where do I get it from?

Thanks. I went to the site and found the laser pro site. Now, how do I download it to the V-Carve and Photo Carve programs? There aren't any instructions.

Search for the PosP folders on the C drive. Download the files there.

My Postp files do not have the Laser program listed.

Click on the Open Application Data Folder in the File menu. Copy the PP file you downloaded from the NextWave site into the PostP folder. Restart your Vectric software and the new PP will be in the dropdown list when you go to save the toolpath.

If you want to cut down the number of PP's in the list then this tutorial will tell you how - http://support.vectric.com/tips-and-tri ... video_id=7
