    Translate-Stretch.

    Adding a second cam to a shop adds a lot of complexities. More to it than just writing a check. You need to think about post differences, training, to name but a few.

    Oh, one more option I just thought of. You can create a CSV file with the coordinates and import that into Mastercam. So in excel you would put X of the first point in A1, y in A2, z in A3, point 2...
