Hey there Mike81,
Thanks so much for joining our community, for the most part the software that drives the Shapeoko is fairly lightweight so most modern laptops can handle the Carbide Create software. There is support for both Windows and Mac so it is your choice which one you want to get.
Let us know if you have any specific questions and as always feel free to give us a call!
At the moment Matterhackers techs are the only people who can create the guides that go into our Article section, that does not mean we do not want to see the information you have. We always want to foster more creativity, if you do want to post the information you have please feel free to make a new post in the General 3D Printing category.
Have a great day!
We have been speaking a LOT about having a WRRF here at HQ lately. With the awesome time we had at MRRF this year, and with many of our affiliates on the west coast, it certainly makes sense.
Keep an eye out here and on social media for announcements and events, and hopefully, we can get a WRRF up and running!
Having issues with the edit view showing changes to scale and rotation. Settings are changed in the fields, but no updates to the 3D views. Before the update I would have to say performance was flawless. I have encountered these same issues now on both the desktop version for the Mac AND the Touch T10.I am also getting more frequent "Not-respond" crashes.I posted about this on the forum as a topic as well.
