Re: VC Pro v10 and an old Shopbot PRT

Update:
After digging around in the PP demo, found a sub folder in the PostP folder labeled Shopbot.
Found my PP, copy and pasted into the Root PP and now all is good!!
Thanks and keep the machines moving!!

Shopbot PRT and Laser

Hey folks!
As the cost of laser keeps coming down, and it’s a natural marriage to a CNC machine, I was wondering if there is a post processor written for the Shopbot to be used in this way.
All help and assist greatly appreciated!

I set up the file in VA3D as usual, save my toolpaths (Shopbot (arcs) (in)) and save the file to import into VC Pro. When I at...

Re: Cribbage Boards

Hey LT985, just asking, do you have a file with the perfect "29" hand? I recall my father had a board that was in the shape of "29" with the appropriate cards displayed in the center.

Nice boards, all of them! Keep them coming.
