Earlier post here: SO3: Anyone Using Artcam?

The wiki has a link for it: http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Commercial_Software#Additional_programs_to_consider23
Which says:

ArtCAM[47] — Use Mach3 PP for Shapeoko2 and GRBL[48]

Linking to: http://www.shapeoko.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=4429&p=32905#p329055 in the latter footnote.
