I am looking for the right software to carve 3d topographic map projects with my CNC, and am testing PixelCNC v1.46a (trial).
After having imported a PNG with height data as a raster layer, I created a tool and then an operation using that tool. The software randomly crashes during the calculation of the operation, typically after a few seconds.
The PNG is not particulary large (276 kB). Sometimes the first operation succeeds, but then it still crashes on the second or third operation. The operations I experimented with were all parallel carvings.
The logs typically end with ‘r_shaderuniformfloat: INVALID OPERATION’, if that helps. They occur frequently in each log.
Although PixelCNC looks promising and, based on what I've seen, would probably be my preferred CAM software choice, random crashes like these would make the software unworkable for me … quick feedback would be appreciated!
NB: I also tested 1.45a, which crashes as well on the same test, although it typically takes a bit longer.
