We keep on fixing bugs as well as optimizing the software with each new release. Besides that, here is a list of new features in this one:
– Added printing of both SimCam files and CNC code.
– Added customizable drawing templates for SimCam.
– Program can now read paths like %USERPROFILE% in path settings.
– Added background bitmaps to SimCam.

Our server host is dealing with an issue affecting our site. We are working with them to specifically identify the issue and fix it. This issue is affecting thousands of sites world-wide. We apologize for this and will keep you updated.
Update Tuesday April 12:
The servers are running normally now and we keep monitoring them closely.
We are happy (and a little bit proud) to announce yet another cool new version of the famous CNCSimulator Pro software. This version brings good news for all of you who have asked us about Macro programming. We now support parameterized programming inspired by the Fanuc Custom Macro B language specification. We also include a special debugger window where users can step through macro code and keep an eye on how variables change during execution.
This new version also gets rid of the Z movements during radius compensation limitation. No more annoying alarms when moving in Z during G41/ G42!
A smaller change has also been made to the MRU (Most Recent Used) files list. Now they show up in proper order so that the last used file is at top of the list.
Some stability issues have also been fixed.
This version needs .NET Framework 4.0 or later to run.
We have uploaded a new version that fixes the problems some users with ATI/AMD cards had. If you are affected by these issues, uninstall your current version and update to version 126.96.36.199 or later.
