Due to the availability of other, more mature, low cost CAM packages, LazyCam development has ceased and it will remain in permanent Beta status. LazyCam is not intended – and not supported – for use in a production environment.
LazyCam is a BETA-release free importer included with Mach3. It’s purpose is to import standard dxf, cmx, and other file types to allow those that do not use CAM programs to more easily generate Gcode to be run under Mach3. The Basic (free) edition of LazyCam that is included with Mach3 carries no cost, but will only output 50 lines of gcode if Mach3 is running in Demo mode. There is an optional PRO level upgrade that turns on advanced features such as object offsetting, pocketing, etc. As the software is BETA, not all features are fully functional – please thoroughly test your files before purchasing a Pro license!
