I finally have been using PixelCNC with my NomadPro3 and the latest release seems to crash more often. I have been trying to do an apples to apples comparison with MeshCamV8 which is free with the Nomad machine. Either way, the crashes happen mostly when saving tools or when changing operation types within an existing operation. It also hung once when I did something dumb generating paths which should have been caught without the hang. Hopefully the software will make it to beta soon without so many crash scenarios.

On a positive note PixelCNC has more features than MeshCam.

Wish it worked on my MacBook Pro without a virtual windows environment.


Hello there. I'd like to see a logfile that's output after a crash. If you go into PixelCNC's File menu there is a "View Log Files" option that should open up the folder where all of the log files are output. They are named chronologically with the date and time that PixelCNC is started. You should be able to go through them and find one that ends in a crash because it will lack shutdown information at the end of the log file. The last line in the log file after a successful shutdown should say "returning to OS..."

You can copy/paste the contents of a log file that appears to be from a crashed session to and post the resulting link here instead of pasting the log file here on the forum. I should be able to get enough information from the log file to figure out if there's a simple fix for the crashes you're experiencing. Feel free to create more than one pastebin with multiple log files, the more the merrier!
