You've got a choice of: a)Backing up the files b)Cloning the image If you backup files , generally files that are in use do not get copied. Since your SuperControl Operating System is Windows XP, that means that the critical files, like the registry, don't get backed up. Advantage: Easier to recover...

Puzzle Piece Wasteboard

For what it's worth... I haven't been able to find 5x10 material locally for wasteboard/spoilboard, but I have found 4x8 Ultralight MDF several places. My solution: I copied the geometry from the \"puzzle piece face frame\" and created a DXF file that cuts and \"stitches\" togeth...

I had the same issue. I had a DXF that would take HOURS to process. At first I assumed that the machine had locked up. I kept turning the power off to restart. Finally, curiosity got the best of me and I let it process overnight. The next day, I found that it had eventually completed. The short answ...

DXF Processing Enhancement Request

I would like to request that the tool number be able to be spcified in the DXF layer name. Currently, if I want a specific tool to be used for a Centerline or Chain, for example, I have to make a bogus, unique tool diameter and specify that diameter in the layer name, like so: \"Centerline z0p5...
