Customer Video: How to build a CNCPC
Marty shows us how he built a PC for CNCPC duty that meets the Centroid Minimum PC performance requirements. A step by step video showing the CNCPC build.
Customer Video: How to create a "Report" file
A report file is an essential tool for saving the CNC control configuration and parameters for a specific machine. The report file has many uses. Using a report file to save the cnc control configuration settings will save you a ton of time if you ever have to install a new hard drive or upgrade the Centroid CNC software.
A report file is also required for Centroid Factory technical support. So the tech support crew can "see" how your specific CNC control is configured and provide concise and specific answers to technical questions.
