Vcarve and Acorn

Keith mentioned he uses Vcarve on a router I think. I was looking at Aspire and thinking for woodwork it would be the cats meow. Mainly wondering about the post processor availability for the Acorn.
So who is using either Aspire or Vcarve a Centroid controller?

Re: End to Acorn Introductory Pricing date is January 3rd 2018

Re: Missing ability to import DFX file

If I had an Acorn controller on my CNC plasma table and someone sent me a .dxf file to cut would I have to recreate that from scratch in Intercon or would I use something like SheetCam which lets me import a .dxf and generate the G-code?

What would be the method?

Re: Router related questions.

Just my .02 on the subject. You really have to ask yourself is it reasonable to ask for the high end features on a controller of this price point. I bet many of you are here because you found how much of a bargain Acorn is what you get for the money given all its standard features. It won't work fo...

Re: Z axis Jog while running

Have a look at the Neuron THC. They have different units that will work with plasma and O/A.
