Hello,

I am new to the CNC world and I currently have a very, very basic understanding of machine control.  Until now I have been generating g-code to produce parts on CNC mills and routers, but I've never had to understand the machines themselves.  I am familiar with programs like BobCAD, Mastercam, and some other proprietary machine software, but I am just starting my journey to learn more about the actual machines and controllers.  Currently I have a Komo Solution router which uses proprietary software to control the machine.  I am curious if the machine can be converted to be controlled using Mach3.  Does anyone know if this is possible?

I imagine that there may be many, many variables that exist and and need to be defined before attempting to do this; however I would really like to investigate this further.  I am looking for help getting started on a list of things to begin checking.  What are a few of the major things that I must confirm with the router and PC in order for Mach3 to successfully operate the machine?  I know the machine functions properly using the proprietary software, so I guess what I really need to understand is equipment/ component compatibility with Mach3.  Please help this newbie out.  I'll definitely continue browsing the forum and reading posts to help me learn about components and how they work.

Thanks,

Brian W.
