This'll be a swell Christmas!

JUST got Aspire V3 upgrade. One tool alone was worth the upgrade

PartsWorks(sp?) from Shopbot is made by Vectric, yes? (No 3D

No regrets I bought the General, but I would have been just as happy

I expect my complete payback sometime summer '11

Jr. or Shopbot Buddy, that way I won't tie up the 4x8 whilst the
little one is carving its little guts out all night and day. Figure on
an hour per square ft of you're doing any kind of textured

So would CNC become N routering as it will be C-Less one day soon?
Yup, bitmaps. White is high, black is low... and 16 bit grey scale in
That's pretty high res. on the Z plane. the x-y are vectors so
whatever the machine can resolve.
