Hey guys! My sr44 x3 is shipping today and I cant wait to get started with it. I am the owner of a educational material and toy company. I have had a couple hobby machines for several years, but with a need for production speeds i took the plunge into camaster.

Congrats!
Hopefully your machine delivery experience will be a lot better than mine. My Stinger 1 left CAMaster on last Wednesday headed for SE Florida. I won't be getting it delivered until tomorrow (1 week). It's been a total fiasco trying to arrange this since the last leg shipping company does not provide lift gate service.
It would have been less frustrating and less expensive to drive to GA and pick it up myself. Grrr.

It has been almost 11 years since my MiniCobra was built. After 22 years in the trucking industry, I changed careers. I'd seen too many truckers & trucking companies not give a damn about customer service. I decided to pick my machine up at the CAMaster plant in Calhoun.
I saved myself a fair bit of money, as well as a whole lot of grief, by transporting it home myself. 1050 miles or so, no damage, no waiting for delivery, & the forklift from the sawmill down the road just showed up the next morning. No hassles .....
Mind you, my CNC fit in the box of a Tacoma. At 760 lbs, it rode nicely.
Anyway .... I feel your pain.

Welcome to the group! I have an SR44 and am very happy with the performance. There are many users in this group that will gladly offer any assistance or help you may need.

I am new to the forum. Looking for support from anyone familiar with Camaster Panther running KCD software. Still learning a lot.

Wondering if there was a specific group for Camaster CNC using KCD software

Mosaik and Cabinet Parts Pro seem to be the popular ones here and there are dedicated discussion areas here at Camheads for those applications. You may want to start a thread to ask this question in the General Topics area of the software area for better exposure.
