Highlights of
Version 3.0

One of the cornerstone features of the Creative Evolution CNC has been the update-ability of the control software. We continue to offer improvements and innovations. New features include:

    • Macro programs for easy operator programming of everyday layout functions like facing, squaring, pocketing, and holes
    • Data filtering for more efficient roughing operations
    • Thermal compensation sensing, for ultra-high accuracy
    • Fully automated laser tool probing
    • User-defined commands for custom user functions
    • Automatic home and offset center-finder

All Creative Evolution CNC users can update to the
latest control software and enjoy the latest features and performance.
