General Mach Discussion / Capabilities of MACH3
« on: February 19, 2007, 12:03:33 PM »
Hi, I just purchased a small milling machine and all the hardware to convert it to CNC.  I am using stepper motors and Gecko drives.  MACH3 looks wonderful, I would just like to verify what it does.

Does it allow me to pull in 3D solid models and generate G-code?
Does it generate the step/direction output that is necessary for the Gecko drives? (if so, what is the interface to the host PC?)
Does it support such things as limit switches?
Is there a hardware interface manual that I can download and take a look at?
What exactly do the wizards do?

Thank you all in advance for your help.  I am afraid I was a little overwhelmed by the amount of information on the website.  If you could just point me in the right direction, that would be great.
