Dear VoluMill for Mastercam customer,
Subject: Update regarding VoluMill and Mastercam.
Mastercam has released their MU1 update for version X5 and we are able to offer an updated version of VoluMill to you. This new version will run in both X5 as well as X5 MU1 and incorporates our very latest VoluMill Engine.
Despite all of our attempts to continue our relationship with CNC Software, we have been unsuccessful. If you choose to install a version of Mastercam beyond X5 MU1 at some future date, you can continue to generate VoluMill toolpaths with our VoluMill Universal product. This standalone system works with any CAM system, including any version of Mastercam. Though not integrated into Mastercam, it generates toolpaths that are identical to those you are using now, so there will be very little change to your workflow. It will also be continually updated with enhancements and bug fixes, ensuring that you always have access to our latest improvements. Your current licenses of VoluMill for Mastercam will automatically work with VoluMill Universal.
In addition, in order to provide support after our Mastercam licenses expire, we have added an Export button to the VoluMill Parameters tab. This button automatically exports VoluMill data from any version of VoluMill for Mastercam (X2 through X5 MU1) to a VoluMill Operation Archive file. You can then send these files to us if you need technical support. In our next version, VoluMill Universal will allow you to import VoluMill Operation Archive files directly, so that you can easily move your Mastercam toolpaths into VoluMill Universal.
VoluMill 4.1 requires that your maintenance is current as of Decemmber 15, 2011. To check your maintenance expiration date, run the VoluMill License Manager from your Start Menu: Start -> All Programs -> VoluMill for Mastercam... -> VoluMill License Manager.
