That’s a good point, I honestly didn’t see the date of that blog post. I just last night installed the latest GWizard and the buttons are definitely still there, and if I hit the copy button it definitely copies tool data to my clipboard as I can paste it as text into a text file. As for the format being correct I have no clue since I don’t know what format is readable by Meshcam, but what I paste into a text file is mostly human readable. Regardless of the age of the blog post though, unless I’m missing something I don’t see a post with that functionality removed, and GWizard still has it albeit perhaps the format is wrong.
When I went shopping for a CNC router I looked at a bunch. I also budgeted welll over the machine cost for additional items like cutters, dust extraction, a dedicated PC to run everything, purpose built workbench and also software. Everything has come together really nice, I really like my XXL, I’m impressed with just about everything, the whole setup is really impressive (and I see huge industrial CNC machines all the time as part of my day job). I however really dislike buying stuff twice because what I decided on doesn’t do what I planned to use it for. Many times I do that to myself and I’ll suck that up as a lesson learned. When deciding on software I really liked the idea of buying from the guys that make my machine. While I’m mostly happy with my whole purchase in general the software bugs really get under my skin. I also did software development several years ago, so I understand that it’s the nature of the beast, but from my reading it “appears” as though this piece of software is caught somewhere between a buggy V6 and a still very beta V7. There in lies my frustration, I feel there should be a solid close out release for V6. I’ll probably find work arounds or start shopping for new software, and buy twice.
Sorry for the rant once again and I appreciate the replies so far, I’ve felt in limbo for the last few days and this is great support!!!
