newbie needing help

Postby cpeky » Fri Jun 24, 2016 11:09 am

Hello all, I just bought my first plasma table and need some help. I bought my table at an auction of a company that went out of business. I got the computer to run it and everything. I have it set up and everything is working correctly. My problem is going through all of the files that were left on the computer they have some really neat art. I find the files that are .fgc and can cut them but I want to edit some of them for example, They have the name "carter" over top of cat in the hat and I would like to change the name "carter" to something else how can I do this easily? I can not find any .dxf files on the computer. Is there someway to convert the .fgc to .dxf? Once again I am new to this and would like some help thanks for your time.

Hmm Torchmate Driver software opens these so possibly a call to Torcmate Tech Support to see if they can reverse the process to get your dxf cut path from your fgc files.

If it is a Torchmate table, did you get the dongle that unlocks the Torchmate software. I believe Torchmate software is proprietary to editing these files but not absolutely sure. I also believe that Torchmate was recently bought out by Lincoln.
