Latest Download 3.2a
« on: August 19, 2016, 07:18:46 AM »
Download the latest BCL version here:

Important: You must now be using Grbl 1.1e. You can flash that onto your controller board from inside BCL in the Setup->Flash Firmware tab.

BCL download is now on my Dropbox account:

3.2a https://www.dropbox.com/s/qv1qee2vb65785t/SetupBenCutLaser3.2a.zip?dl=0

Installation instructions:

1. The file you download is a .zip file.
2. After downloading to your PC, manually unzip the file.
3. The folder where these files will be unzipped into will be 'SetupBenCutLaser2.7b'
4. Navigate to that folder and look for the Setup.exe file. Double click on that file to start the installation process.

Note: When attempting to download the zip file, your browser may inform you it has detected a virus. This is a false-positive and may be ignored.

Before uploading to my Dropbox account, I scan the BCL zip file with 65 anti-virus scanners and usually, 2 or 3 show a virus, 62/63 do not. In my detailed discussions on an anti-virus forum, these 3 scanners are known for their false-positives.

In addition, on my development PC, I have scanned my entire machine (a NEW Windows 10 Pro OS installation) using the following anti-virus programs and none have found a virus:

1. AVG
2. SpyHunter
3. BullGuard
4. Avast
5. MalwareBytes
6. Windows Defender

I'm confident that the BCL installation zip file does not contain any viruses.

Release 3.2a

I added an .ini file entry to allow setting the top pane height of the Toolpaths tab.

The BenCutLaser .ini file entry is on line 22:

dxfFileBrowsePaneHeight=96

You can set any height size you need. I've tested up to 156.

Release 3.1h

Paul added in Setup a DXF file check for duplicate drawing objects.

Release 3.1e

BCL now supports running under Linux and it's Wine Virtual Machine (VM) software.

Please note the BenCutLaser.lic file format has changed. It's internal encrypted format for Windows is different than for Linux/Wine.

Existing Paid users when you download 3.1+ you may get a dialog box telling you that your Paid .lic file is corrupt. You will need to download the new format lic file here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/g4fp83v0zmo8qfq/BenCutLaser.lic?dl=0 and copy it into your BenCutLaser folder. Then start up BCL and send me the ID Code number. I will verify you have purchased a Paid BCL license and then send you a new Paid license file.

The link with the instructions on how to make BCL work under Linux is here:

1. My co-developer Paul has finished coding the Arc Assistant, or what we are now calling the G-Code Visual Editor! This feature is available in the Virtual Laser Machine (VLM) tab and you can now write g-code on the left side in the G-Code Editor -- or -- using your mouse to click and drag Lines and Arcs on the right side in the VLM canvas itself. As you visually do this in the VLM canvas, the g-code of that object is dynamically updated on the left side in the editor itself.
