Ask your question on the UCCNC forum. Someone there should have one

There are probably better options but I have used the usbcnc post processor without problem, in fact when I first used it I was sure it said uccnc not usbcnc :oops: :oops:
As Gary says they have a forum so ask there for a better option. :lol: :lol:

The Mach3 post should work fine.
I'll try to find the time to write a UCCNC post this weekend, and I'll put it on my website.

Thank you all for your help. I was a mach3 user running through a UC100. My computer died, the new one has Windows 10 not the old 7 so I am migrating to UCCNC with my old
UC100 together with my old Vcarve Pro V6.
So just hoping there is a compatible P.P. On V6. Thanks. Peter.
