ARTCAM to Quickcam Pro problems

Post by bradders » Thu 27 Sep , 2007 13:55 pm

I have moved schools, the previous school used MiniCAM to convert ARTCAM files into FNC files.
I need to use old ARTCAM files on the MicroRouter. According to manual and online research QuickCAM Pro is an update program which should be able to convert ARTCAM however when I try the file type is not found eg filename.art .
The error 'maybe you forgot to add the support unit to you unit GLFileART ?'

What is the solution ??

Quickcam Pro will not import .ART file extensions. Quickcam Pro will only import .STL files which I am informed can be produced by the latest version of ARTCAM
