One important reason why companies should want to develop a Mac driver is to differentiate themselves from others. Until then, VMWare works just fine. If you have a valid Windows license as well, then there is no reason to use Acrobat Reader. I have been lurking on this site for weeks, and thanks to the things I have gleaned from your discussions, will be getting an Epilog Helix with a 75 watt tube in the very near future. But my personal opinion is that running a laser from a MAC is a waste. You may have a different preference. Likewise, I wouldn’t have struggled so long before I settled on Epilog if they had a native Mac driver.

Therefore, if anyone has any suggestions or advice about running these programs on a MacBook in a Parallels or Boot Camp environment, I’d be very grateful. Until then, VMWare works just fine.
If so, you shouldn’t have any difficulty. I don’t understand your last comment. The last version that was OSX native was 11 and it was dog slow too. Sponsored Forums Private Forums Authors.
Introducing the Epilog Mac Driver

I liked the ability to work on some projects at home on my Mac and then come to the shop with a native file instead of getting mixed results with an import. I’m not positive, but I think Universal Lasers have developed, or are developing, true Mac compatibility.

The printing in a BSD derivative is not like printing in Windows. Brett, Thanks for mentioning VMWare. Now for my first question. For example see this Apple Link MAC machines would be a great asset to the file creation, edit, and other functions for a laser business.
I started my computing on a Commodore 64 plugged into the tv and I’ve run PC’s ever since them, but I’d never buy another PC if the laser companies would develop some real Mac drivers.
Connected via Ethernet and helx great. I do agree with time estimation and a direct Mac driver for the number of graphic artists that prefer and have used Mac’s thruout their schooling and career. I still use a Epilov XPS for my “main” system, and I have an older Dell Dimension that I was thinking about hooking up to the laser it will run elsewhere in my studio.
Having to buy an entire operating system to install on the Mac just to get the laser to work defeats the reasoning people buy Mac’s in the first place. Windows Vista with Epilog Drivers?
Feed back Thanks for the feedback guys. You print through the HP Laserjet driver, which is the same if you hleix windows My belief is that there is a substantial untapped market out there of graphic designers using Macs that would think about laser engravers more seriously if they were compatible with their equipment.
I don’t want to spark a Ford v. Xcode from Apple has done a lot of work to help with that. Just don’t hold your breath for that to occur any time soon if ever!
David “The Stunt Engraver” Epilg. Hopefully our resident Corel employee will see this and post some good news for us Mac people.
I would like to know whether anyone out there has used a MacBook Pro to run a laser, specifically an Epilog. As it happens, we have both a Windows and a Mac version.
Epilog Laser Mac Driver
I just ran the Epilog for about 30 mc straight and the thing won’t die, even though the bulb was replaced 5 years ago! I don’t have any experience with running a laser on a Mac, but I will say this in hopes all the big names are watching.
I also am a lurker for the most part at this site. Until Feburary, all I have used was Dell computers. From what I understand, the MacBook Pro is no different that the standard MacBook other than cosmetics and a few features?
