I have a Torchmate CNC plasma that I've been using for about 5 years. When I bought the machine I also bought their Torchmate CAD software (Basically SignLab). Well I got a new computer this week and I can not use my Torchmate CAD 5.0 because my new computer is a 64 bit machine. I have to upgrade to Torchmate 8.0 ($500 bucks) in order to use it on my new computer. Normally I wouldn't have a problem spending money on a tool, however, I don't really use Torchmate CAD at all. I do all my drawings in other programs (Corel, Illustrator) then I use Torchmate CAD to make the tool file (Lead in, lead out, tool offset and sometimes cutting sequence).
My question is: Is there any software that I can add to Corel, or another CAD program that I can perform those 3-4 basic tool functions?
Thanks in advance!
