Our Offline Intercon Conversational Software allows you to program from the comfort of your desk while you keep the machine busy cutting. It is availabe for $99. Please give Support a call at 814-353-9290 Option 4 and they can make sure you get a version that is compatible with both the PC you plan on using and the version of Centroid Software you are running on the machine.

Certainly. Do your CAD/CAM work on the office PC and then copy it to a thumb drive, take it to the machine running the Centroid software, and load it onto its PC and you are good to go.

What Liviu is referring to is Intercon, their conversational programming software. You can purchase it and use it on your office PC, post the G code, copy it to a Thumb drive and carry it to the CNC machine's PC, and load it.
