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.

Regards
Eric

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

Cheers
Geoff

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 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.
