General Mach Discussion / Another DIY CNC Question design & kit related..
« on: January 01, 2007, 03:58:23 PM »
First of all Happy New Years!

I have been gathering some building supplies for almost a year now and I am getting ready to do some actual building soon. I am planning on a small moving gantry type design approx 40"x40" some designers use one motor to move this gantry with a chain and sprockets and others put two motors coupled right on the drive screw. My question is what are the pros and cons to them and if I go with the extra motor do I need the 4 axis kit seen here:

Now will Mach3 work well with the above kit? and will the above kit be able to handle all the features of the Mach3 software??

Thanks!!
