We just purchased 2 seats of the Editor product (EditCNC). We find it to be a superior editor that fits our needs well. A big improvement over other editors, Thanks!
Praise... As a traveling service tech within the CNC industry for many years, I have used many DNC softwares ($$) over the years to upload/download parameters for the Fanuc 6M, 0P-B, 0P-C controls and I must say that I was very impressed with the simplicity (and the price) of your ConnectCNC software.
After installing a simple USB/RS232 driver onto my Windows 10 laptop, the ease of flow was great. I have many customers that would/will have great interest in your product and I will solicit it with pride. Thank you again....

EditCNC is loaded with features that I use every day, and it is very reasonably priced.
I do a lot of manual editing of my files, and this program has been an invaluable addition to my CNC work. Designating a different color for each axis makes it easy to find lines of code. With EditCNC it is possible to shift any axis by any distance. Not only is this useful for tweaking areas of a file, it allows me to copy and offset whole segments of code to create copies of cuts without going back to the CAM software.
I also use this feature to make fine Z adjustments for critical areas of instruments. The list of ways this software makes my life easier goes on and on. The bottom line is that EditCNC is one program I don't want to live without.
Thanks for your fast response, I really think that your software (EditCNC) is among the best out there. I had the opportunity to try others and found them very limited. I wish you continuing success.
Thank you so much (for the new activation code for Machinist's Calculator). I tried to paste it into the original demo that I transferred from my old machine but got an error, so I went to your site and downloaded a new demo then activated it; works good.
Looks a little nicer than the old one...don’t know if you made improvements or it just looks better on this computer, at any rate THANK YOU. This is a big help on my job as a highway project inspector. I use mainly the triangle, cord, and polygon calcs.
I use the right angle and oblique trigonometry functions when I need to find the area of triangles. I can field measure 3 sides of an oblique triangle and enter them into the machinist calculator... times the depth and can easily calculate yd³.
Or I may have the skew angle of an abutment and a measurement of one side given in the plans, using the right angle triangle calculator I can quickly calculate the area or calculate the other side measurements or the other angles if I need them.
I can use the cord function to double check curb length (arc length) at intersections with 90 degree angles and a radius taken off the plan.
I mostly use the triangle calculations, your calculator is very handy for that purpose and it is worth the cost.

I like your product (Machinist's Calculator) and found it to work well on the speed & feeds for my CNC use. This is the 2nd copy I’ve purchased and it is going into my laptop to use at the CNC in the shop. Thanks much.
I have version 6.2.11 on my desk top, and on the new download (v6.7.1) on the laptop the Show Materials List has way more material types.
I’ve tried other ones on the internet but they didn’t impress me like yours. This new version is even sweeter! Thanks.

Very impressed with editor-first job was to convert a pile of programs from inches to millimetres. It's more than paid for itself already. Best of luck with development.

Received your disc yesterday. It's a great CNC text editor.
The only addition I would like to see so far is to enable the "Home" & "End" keys on the keyboard to get to the end and the beginning of the program. Some of the code I write is a few Mb long and that is a great plus.*
I am actually an engineering consultant for several aerospace machine shops here in the area. I will be sure to include a link to your site on my webpage, as it's a great text editor.

I just received my free upgrade of EditCNC from version 2.8 to version 2.9. Thanks, you have a great product.
Feel free to use any of my correspondence on your web site.

We have updated the new version (*see note below) and have the transfer completely tested.
At the Fanuc control there is all right everything now. Perfect.
There still is a tiny problem at the HEIDENHEIN -Control on the MIKRON machine. The HEIDENHEIN-Programs begins with "0 BEGIN PGM ...". But the number zero at first line, however, unfortunately isn't written into the file and is missing therefore. Would you like to correct this still?
Again many thanks for the realization.

*Note: This is the latest is a series of correspondence during which Edgar kindly worked with us to refine ConnectCNC, the optional file transfer component of EditCNC.
The "tiny problem" has been fixed.

You can use my remarks on the website. I just got the confirmation of a PO from you. I have e-mailed the code number to you in a separate mailing.
I have been using Editcnc for a few months now. I do continuous improvement on lathe programs right on the shop floor. I was wondering if you had an I and K formula for circular interpolation for use on a lathe. If you don't is there any chance that you will. (we don't yet)
My supervisor is pleased with the program and his boss is pleased with the increased productivity. We ordered another licence today.
Harry & Loraine,
Thank you for your help. Everything is working fine now. I have grown very accustomed to your software and would not care to go back to using our old DNC software. I especially like how ConnectCNC handles drip feeding without any problems. I used to have to send my file to the CNC machine several times before it would work with our old program. I really enjoy EditCNC and ConnectCNC.

Thanks SOOO much for your quick reply. Now that is what I call service.
I have entered the code as you directed. Everything is working just fine. I forgot to order the codes before I went on vacation. The licence had expired when I returned.
I appreciate the help and service.
