    I have been reading through your FAQ's. You said the advanced software package would be released in 2007. Thats great! I bought the entire CarveWright system when I saw it. Will there be any release for those of us who already have the machine or will we have to purchase it as well??

    it appears that they intend to make it avail to everyone but at this point there has been no set price (the last time I checked anyway).

    it also appears that they will break apart some pieces like centerline font for a portion of the price.

    stay tuned
    I know there is no point in reinventing the wheel, but reinventing myself is a worthy goal to be sure.

    .mpc file are loaded by the compuCarve designer software. From what I understand current owners will have to buy the new software for a fairly steep price.

    sanray,
    It really depends on what you are trying to accomplish and what tools and skills you have. You can buy MDF or plywood in 4x8 foot sheets and if you dont have capabilities to rip it you can have your Lowes or Home depot cut it in sizes you want when you purchase it. I have seen white pine project boards that are laminated strips, again ready to purchase at Lowes or HD... If you are looking for hardwoods, you can get milled material from some lumber mills. If you have the tools and ability, you can use a jointer planer, and glue thin strips together to laminate them, then thickness plane them to your 1/2 thickness...

    Hope that helps...

    hewitt,
    The port was rumored to be a connector for a 4th axis attachment, but nothing has been released on that yet?... dont know if it ever will but thats what i heard.

    Practice material - I used MDF as well for a little while, but found that it caused a lot of dust problems, gave me headaches, and ultimately has a chemical in it that is very bad for you. If you choose to use it, I highly reccomend using a dust mask, and you will have a good bit of vacuuming out to do afterwards. It does cave nice, and creates a nice painted project. Once you get going, you will want to create a downdraft table to control the dust, and it isnt an issue.

    A decent cheap material is either pine shelving, or poplar, both available at your local Lowes, or Home Depot.

    Hope this helps,

    Ron

    Thanks for the information!

    I think I will get me some poplar. I don't like anything with chemical in it. I am an Agent Orange Patient. And I don't need any more crap in my system!

    Thanks
