Links in the program

Just a reminder that several links in version 3.2 do no longer work because we have redesigned our website. Therefore we recommend that users go directly to our site and follow the links in the menu. We apologize for any inconvenience while we are transitioning to the new site.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all of our users and customers at cncsimulator.com!

As we close out the year, we wanted to take a moment to thank you all for your continued support and valuable feedback. Your input has helped us to continually improve our CNC simulator and we are grateful for the opportunity to serve you.

As we enter the new year, we are excited to continue to innovate and provide the best possible experience for our users. We look forward to continuing to work with you and to hearing your feedback and ideas for future improvements.

Thank you again for your support and we wish you all the best for a happy and successful new year.

Payment issues with Mastercard

Payment processing issues arose between 2Checkout (our payment gateway) and Mastercard, and we were notified that 2Checkout will shutdown MasterCard processing for an undefined period.

You can still use Mastercard, but it require checking out using PayPal.

This means that you may receive “billing attempt failed” errors when trying to renew your subscription.


As such we appreciate if you:

  • Update your card information if you have an existing subscription and have used MasterCard for billing. 2Checkout will send you a link for that, and this needs to be done only when you want to use another card, otherwise no action is required from your end.
  • If you are paying for a new subscription, use Visa or PayPal to buy Platinum Edition, if you want to use MasterCard anyway, then please use PayPal checkout method on 2Checkout, and link your MasterCard to PayPal.


Sadly we have no control over this issue, and like you are hoping that 2Checkout will resolve this issue with MasterCard, and normal operations will resume.

You can help by Tweeting at @2Checkout to encourage them to resolve the issue faster.

We thank you for your understanding.

Version 4 beta 2

Version 4 beta 2 is now available from our download page. It contains some minor bug fixes and a fix to the Microsoft-related issue in the previous post.

Windows update create problems.

There has been an update to Windows 10 that create issues in the 2D view and SimCam. Lines are thicker and looks strange. This does not affect the functionality though.

We are wafting for Microsoft to address this issue and hopefully there will be a solution soon.


As we are getting close to releasing a public beta of version 4, we would like to thank our users for the great feedback. A special thanks go out to engineer Peter Schuurbiers at the CNC Instructie Buro in the Netherlands. His feedback and in-depth knowledge in CNC machining have been invaluable in making the simulator more realistic. Thanks to every one of you that has helped us make a better simulator!
