Hello Everyone,

I am a complete novice with Laser engraving. I have purchased a basic machine from China and would like to use software that will be compatible with Windows 8.

The current software that was in the package will only work on XP which is a pain really, is there software out there that will work ?

I am looking forward to chatting to others regarding my future projects.

Thanks...:)

Hi.
I'm from Jerez, South Spain as you can read in my signature. My name is Antonio.
I have a laser cut and engraver machine since last August. So I'm yet a beginner and I'm learning a lot of from other users with more experience.
My machine is a THUNDERLASER Mars 60.
I use plywood and cardboard to make parts and assemblies that I see in the forum.
Desde Jerez de la Frontera, sur de España, mis mejores deseos a todos.

Hello everyone,

I work for Coastal Optical Systems. We manufacture optics for high profile projects most of the time. We have many CNC machines that grind optics and also manufacture metal housings to contain them.

I just wanted to drop in this spot as suggested and say hi.

Look into a piece of software called V carve by vetric
Without a better description of your equipment that is the best advice I can give.

Hello group.
My Nicole is Farley I'm 55 and semi retired I live in Athens Ga, and am getting a 900 sq ft shop and I've been wanting to build a router/plasma tabel for a long time now. They started advertising the carvewright seems like a powerful and easy CNC for the price but i sure would like to have a plasma cutter too. The post with the plans for the MechMate seems to be the tabel for me 4x8 size. For the software Mach 3 seems to be the choice. I probualy need help on the steppers and that side of the project. Is there something in between the software so I can Drawing up my own designs and scanning them into the computer and cut them on the tabel? Please understand I'm a newbee and only think i know what I've read. Thanks Nicole

Hello All,

I came across laser engraver forum after searching across the Web for info on DIY CNC. I like building things and recently started woodworking as a hobby and I hope to learn more about DIY CNC machines to assist with that.

I love the aspect that I can build a CNC machine myself.

I hope to learn as much as possible from the experienced folks here. Also, I am looking for recommendations for a starter CNC machine to attempt to build.

I am open to all recommendations or advice.

Cheers,

Vic from Virginia
