Default BobCAD-CAM Milling Video Training Series V23

Hey Guys,

Im just starting out using BobCAD and have inherrited a CNC Router which has BobCad V23 and Mach3 Installed on a laptop. Its all supposed to work. I also got the BobCAD-CAM V23 Milling Video Training Professor Series of CD's. Ten in all. It contains 162 Videos specifically relating to Version 23 which is great and just what I need to get started and see if it will be suitable for what I want to do. If it is I may invest in a new version and training but this is just to get me started. However Disc 1 is damaged and I can't access videos 4 through 9 on CD1. These are :-

Video 4 - More On Selection Mask (11:45)
Video 5 - Settings Default and Part (6:41)
Video 6 - More On Current Settings (3:56)
Video 7 - Software Setup (3:05)
Video 8 - Tool Database (5:38)
Video 9 - Compound Operations (4:10)

Now as someone just starting out I believe that these videos will be invaluable in assisting me to learn the software but the CD wont allow me to access them. Ive checked and part of the surface is scratched and the foil has flaked away.

Now what I am hoping is that someone here may still have these said same CD's or access to these particular files and can help me out. I dont believe it will be more than 300 Mb in size as after checking the other CD's the rest are about 500 Mb in size sometimes 600Mb in their total capacity. Im only after the 6 Video Files mentioned and some of them are short but that would give me a complete collection of Videos for V23 which is what Im after currently. Yes I know its out of date and I should upgrade but this is not for buisness and im unemployed and im not even getting any social security benefits so I hoping to maybe learn this and get a job in the industry someday or maybe make something to sell. So what you say ? Can you HELP ! ?

I am not sure that I have access to the V23 disks to send via the web. I recommend you speak with an associate at the office to sort that out. 877-262-2231 X123

As far as learning the software I would recommend taking a look at a few of the new videos I've done on the V29 software. These videos are based on the mill express software which would be an very affordable upgrade should you choose to upgrade.

Thanks for the advice but im in the UK and the phonecall would bankrupt me. Im unemployed and dont recieve any state benefits and am trying to assist a woman thats bought a home made router with the aim of using it to produce signs. The problem is shes no background in CNC or CAD/CAM and has asked me to help her as I am a CNC Machinist by trade. However I primarilly use Control Panels or Control Boxes and have never used BobCAD prior to this. I think upgrading the software is likely not an option as with no support forthcomming for legacy software I would personally not advise my neighbour to upgrade to v29 and to maybe source an alternative. There are plenty about after all. Even Sketchup and Fusion 360 can use plugins to generate G-code but Delcam would be my personnal choice. However I have no say in this matter but considering that my neighbour is only looking at producing signs like No 8 for a house or maybe the name of a house I doubt she has the revenue stream to invest in new versions of the software and additional tutorial packages. It would have been more encouraging to have had some assisstance with my enquiry so that I can help her to get started and once she has become aquainted with the software then try to persuade her to upgrade rather than come in with the hard sell so soon. She has already paid a significant amount for the hardware and software that comprise her CNC Router Setup and although I believe shes bought a pig in a poke 'been ripped off' I am doing my best to help her to get the thing running. Im sorry your unable to help in this regard and I appreciate that you need to keep a focus on sales revenue but in this case it simply isnt an option. If you find that the requested Videos for v23 are available at some point I would still be interestind in downloading them but I am dissapointed with your current service and support for legacy customers.
