Hi Popeye (Denis), you are most welcome.

CNC stands for Computer Numeric Control, it is basically a computer controlled router. A design be it text, a drawing, photograph, bulkheads!, anything for that matter is turned into a set of co-ordinates (from a Zero reference), the computer instructs the the router to X, Y and Z.
X is the width of the table in inches or millimeters, Y is the length and Z is the (cutting) depth.
The following video will give you some idea https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkJ_4fJnj_U
Chat soon

Hi Geoff, I use Mach3 v1.8XX but I am looking to get a later version because I have an XBOx 360 usb controller to use as a 'pendant'. Version 1 is lacking the relevant config area.
I also use an old version of Aspire to create toolpaths and GCode.
I also have a Unimat mini Lathe that I want convert to cnc at some later stage.

Hi Eric

I am only using IniversalGcodeSender with GRBL but I will be looking at the CAD works that is going on and that should be able to produce the Gcode file for UniveralGcodeSendeer.

My CNC router is working away as I did this reply

Hi Geoff, NC Studio is a good program to use, I tried it out many years ago. Somewhere on the net you can get a free download version (without using a torrent site) Grbl is used a lot with Rasberry Pi and Arduino which utilise USB, I prefer the printer port connection.

PS it turns out the Xbox controller is a wireless unit and I don't have a reciever for the PC, so I will hunt around the pawn brokers and second hand shops for one.
