Virtual Zero Unlimited

Post by OCEdesigns »

Does anyone know if we can upgrade our Virtual Zero software to the new unlimited?

Mine works pretty good but I have done a few signs on random pieces of wood that the compensation of the 5 points virtual zero work fix. It's wood that I really don't want to plane because that is part of what makes the signs unique.

Give them a call (419)491-4520 at nextwave. Some of the new items aren't out yet for sale. I'm waiting for Ready2Control software which should be available Dec 1st

I'm going to call today to see if I can download it.
It's supposed to be where you can "Map" the surface of the material in unlimited points. Currently it measures 5 points.

This is the answer I got from nextwave. The Virtual zero unlimited will be a feature based strictly in the new control panel. As of this moment the New Control Panel does not have a set release date. The new control panel will have to be utilized in order to get access to the virtual zero unlimited feature. The regular virtual zero is still available through the LCD Pendant by selecting "Apps > Virtual Zero."

I forgot to update this thread. But yeah I got the same answer. But the guy I spoke to did say they want to be able to update the older pendants to this new software. I hope this is true!

2 things: Won't using virtual zero unlimited take a long time, like twice as long as cutting? What about us guys that don't have pendents and use a computer with our controller? Will Virtual Zero Unlimited be available for us?

I agree to call NWA but the guy I talked to did say it will soon be coming standard with all pendant controls. It sounded like if they do offer it to existing users as an upgrade it will need to be the pendant.

The unlimited feature is supposed to be where you can choose how many points you measure. There are times when I would love to add another 2, 3, or 4 points!
