  • How to download wincnc

    Long story short. Computer went to crap and I had to erase and format. How do I download the software and hardware to get my stinger back up and running?

      Yes, you need to speak with Camaster support. While you can download the generic WinCNC from the WinCNC site, it's not setup for your Camaster machine. There's a lot of customization required to account for the specific configuration of any given CNC machine and without a backup (which you really, really, really need to keep...) you will not have any of the configuration files, etc., that your Camaster machine needs to operate properly. This isn't a Camaster's a WinCNC (or any other controller) thing.

        Gladius, not good. May I suggest that when you get it up and running correctly that you backup the hard drive to a clean new hard drive and store it somewhere safe for just such an emergency. The recommendation to call support is your best and probably only option at this point.
