SimCam is made for making CNC programs for the virtual machines in the CncSimulator Pro only. They may or may not be compatible with physical CNC machines. It is your responsibility to make sure the program is 100% correct before running it on a real machine. We do not guarantee that the CNC program is correct or fits your machine and we take no responsibility for damage or accidents caused by running the CNC code outside of the simulator environment.
The SimCam is a first beta and not yet stable. This means that it can crash at any moment resulting in loss of work. To make sure you do not lose your work, save your SimCam drawings often.
We have updated the online help with a beta manual of SimCam. Have a look at http://cncsimulator.com/OnlineHelp/OnlineHelp.html
Please let us know if you find any errors.
What to do when you get a message that your petrol mail has been sent to an email address that is not owned by you?
In rare occasions, the ID of your computer is the same as the ID if another computer. We call this “license collisions”. When it happens, you will not be able to receive your petrol code because it is being sent to another user.
Version 184.108.40.206 brings a solution to this problem.
When you get the message that your license has expired, there will be a message box asking you if you want to open the settings. Answer Yes.
At the bottom of the settings dialog, there is a field called “License extension”.
Click on “Generate” to create an extension to your computer ID making it unique.
At next start, you will be asked to register your license from scratch.

Dear CncSimulator User,
We will soon release the new version 126.96.36.199 with SimCam. We also want to let you know that we have skipped the site login for the petrol station as a measure to make the process more user-friendly. From now on, there is no need to create any user account on the site other than if you want to post on the user forum.
