article announces Microvellum support for the CPRG file format required by some
SCM beam saws. The beam saws covered by this article will be running the
MaestroActive controller and not the older MaestroCut controller software.
is is an encrypted file format of the older XPRG format used by MaestroCut that
Microvellum already supports. For Microvellum to be compatible with saws using
the MastroActive control software, a plugin must be installed that will convert
the XPRG output into the new CPRG file type.
saws using the new MaestroActive control software can only import files in two
formats, the new CPRG format, and PTX v1.14. The standard Microvellum PTX
output is not an option with these saws, as it is PTX v1.08, and no longer
supported on these machines running the MaestroActive controller.
export the CPRG format, the MaestroActive Encryption Plugin must be installed.
This install will place a DLL file named “En.dll” in the Microvellum Custom
Posts folder. When the Microvellum saw optimizer is processing a work order with the “MaestroCutXML” output type and the En.dll is present, it will convert the standard XPRG format into the encrypted CPRG format.
discontinue exporting to the CPRG format and return to the XPRG format, delete
the En.dll out of the Custom Posts folder.
