Need old plasma cam install disc

Post by wyopower » Wed May 02, 2018 12:16 pm

My old plasma cam pc crashed and burned. I got a new computer, but i do not have plasma cam install disc. i miss plased it or lost it over the years i guess.. I called plasma cam and they said for 1200 bucks i can up grade to new version and get new disc.. Problem is i dont have 1200 bucks and only use this unit a few times per year, so i was wondering if any one new where i could get a hard disc CD of the older plasma cam install disc?
Thanks in advance

What a low life company LOL. Holding you to ransom over an old install DVD file set.

Any decent company would just have the DVD ISO file as a download in their archives, or for a fair price would send you another DVD.

I don't care how good their tables might be. When a company does this to customers, I can only hope they eventually lose business, and go out of business.

Hopefully one of the many Plasmacam users has a v3.1 disk. I'm guessing that's the one you are after.

I would post in the plasma Table discussion forums under PlasmaCam also in hopes of finding a user with the old disc.

I can't PM because I am a new member, but I am in the same boat and need 3.11. If someone could help I would appreciate it. I apologize for replying to multiple threads about this. Plasmacam treated me so crappily that I am still would up about the whole ordeal.

I don't understand how this company expects to maintain a customer base when for the same price people can have a far more robust table and in many cases lifetime upgrades for free. Crappy customer service....wtf. Less than transparent pricing, everything is super secret and a tinkertoy frame......hard pass! The whole business structure is just too shady to mess with. Marshall and his Shop Outfitters and Plasmacam is just a weird deal. With the sea of plasma tables on the market they gotta be feeling the burn. They no longer have the entry level market cornered.

What does your post here actually contribute? I doubt you have any personal experience using their machine or software so you speculate. Trust me, they are doing fine despite being notably hard to deal with. I've long said loud & publicly that the company would be run much different if I were in charge but I'm not. As far as a tinker toy.... I don't seem to have any problem loading and cutting 4x8 sheets of 3/4 steel on mine, have you ever even cut a full sheet that thick or is this more unfounded speculation?

Fine if you want to hard pass, that's certainly your prerogative but get over bashing something you don't understand.

You're just getting your feelings hurt because your bread and butter is teaching plasmacam classes. I'm not the only one in this thread taking a harsh opinion of plasmacam......read above. Why did you not jump on them as well? You are correct, I have no experience operating a plasmacam and coming from an industrial background, their machine is a tinker toy. I did consider purchasing until I got the pricing runaround. I am very glad I dodged that bullet! What does your post contribute here? Feel better for calling me out?

What's not to understand about your holy grail machine? Is it powered by a space modulator and plutonium? It's the same story over and over, old plasmacam and now it is a boat anchor until you pay the ransom.

As for questioning if I have ever cut anything that thick? You can shove that little barb. I actually have. A Peddinghaus cnc plasma/plate punch with 1-1/4" capacity. When a person calls out others experience or skill, it shows insecurity or a dumb assumption. Currently, no I do not cut 3/4. The thickest material I cut is 1/4.....because the product I build requires no more than that. I only consume about 4000#s of steel a month, so I am a relatively small operation. You ok now? Do we still need to compare weenees here?

My feelings are just fine. I quit caring what trolls thought of me a long time ago. I'm sure Plasmacam dodged the bullet as well so get over yourself and your need to post on a thread in which you have zero experience or knowledge to offer. My reputation and ability speak for themselves; you seem confused about what I was calling out: your complete lack of experience with the product you were 'reviewing.'

The only statement I made about the piece of equipment was about the frame. No review of anything else. I have set hands on one and seen one work, I have not operated one. I'm not impressed. No review at all.....why do you keep trying to build up what I said? What I said is literally in text above. You obviousely have an emotional connection to this equipment and I apologize for pissing you off. Your abilities to operate an entry level cnc and to teach the software to others should be noted and do speak for themselves. You are very good at all things plasmacam, yes I get that. Can we be done with this or do you still have an axe to grind because I ruffled your feathers?

Your apology is accepted. My feelings never had anything to do with it, I just needed to note some clarifying facts.

When you have someone who teaches Plasmacam, and especially if they profit from it, and others that knock Plasmacam, that's highly unlikely :lol:

Anyway, the drama may be better than Facebook :twisted:
