    What have you got so far ? When you mentioned a 500 line limit, my guess was you had an unlicensed copy of Mach3.

    Having just moved to Windows 10 (which is crap) My stress levels are through the roof !!!

    Yes the copy which I have came with the machine and is obviously un licenced and is therefore no use to me.
    What do you suggest that I should purchase ----- I expect that there is no free suitable package available ?

    Hi Joe,

    It depends what you mean by 'Free' and 'Suitable'. LinuxCNC is free, but I wouldn't like to take it on at my age. For a start I am settled with Mach3 and on this forum there is a wealth of experience with it. That is not to say there are not experts on LinuxCNC here - there are and lots of other controllers are discussed, but they all cost money.

    My solution, if I were you, would be ask your machine supplier why no licence included, or purchase a licence from Artsoft directly (especially if your supplier is in China). If you can run a cut in Demo mode, then you are well on they way with Mach3.

    I am saying this with no knowledge of your machine, give us the details please !

    That is my two pennies worth - no doubt others will step in with more and better advice.

    Cheers,

    Rob

    THANKS Rob,
    I have decided to purchase the Mach 3 from Artsoft and hope that I will succeed with it Joe.

    I have the machine setup and working OK now, Will you be able to send me the g-code so as I can produce the image Joe

    That's great Joe, how are you getting on with the house sign gcode ? When I know that that works, I can do the picture of Eamon, otherwise there will be some tweaking to do.

    Also, do you want the picture the same size as supplied or scaled to a particular size ?
