    We've purchased a new Gerber Sabre 408 router. We've been using
    Enroute Plus v. 3.2 for the past 7 years with our previous Multicam. My
    question is, I know this version of Enroute has a driver for the 408, but
    does anyone have any experience using Enroute with Gerber? I've read
    some mixed things about it.

    We mainly use Enroute to do V carved signs. Gerber has their artpath
    software with the autocarve option to do V carved signs but it is $2,000!
    So my preference would be to keep our Enroute because we know it, and it's
    paid for.

    I need to get this figured out before the Gerber tech comes out here for
    our training days and then tells me that he can't get Enroute to work reliably with their machine. If I do have to break down and buy artpath with autocarve I want to have it when the tech comes so we could
    actually get some training with it.

    Thanks for your help!

    Call whoever sold you the router ( I am assuming a dealer) and have them get with Gerber, that way you don't have to pay for support.

    Maybe I wasn't clear about my question

    Is anyone out there successfully using Enroute Plus v. 3.2 with their Gerber Sabre 408?

    We are! So, here's the deal. I actually came here searching for another copy of enroute for sale.

    At one point we had 3 machines between two locations. One Gerber Sabre 408 running Artpath with autocarve. And 2 multicams. The multicams came with enroute. My primary router op prefers enroute, and for regular cutting I see why. Control start points, cut order, bridges, and better drilling. All things Artpath does not do. So we called Gerber to find out if the upgraded artpath did any of this. Not one person could tell us. No wonder they fading away as a company.

    So, yes enroute 3 plays well with a sabre 408.

    And yes, we still have Artpath running on the PC, but pretty much just for prismatics, it does a better job than enroute does.
