  • Virtual Zero Unlimited, this patented Next Wave CNC exclusive software allows you to map the surface of your material by taking an unlimited number of reference points. The program then uses these points to auto-adjust the G-code to conform to the actual surface of your material. This eliminates problems caused by a warped or bowed workpiece and allows you to maintain a constant cutting depth on projects that other machines would not be able to handle. (requires optional touch plate sold separately)
