General Mach Discussion / ProtoTrak-MX2 Conversion To MACH 3/4?
« on: January 17, 2007, 08:53:11 PM »
Hello All,
I'm new to the forum and to Mach CNC Software. I have acquired a Southwest Industries ProtoTrak MX-2 version CNC mill.
This is a Bridgeport Style mill with 2 axis (X-Y) cnc control. The computer which runs the cnc is unstable, I think due to its age and level of abuse.
It appears that the Mach software has numerous functional advantages over the original software from ProtoTrak.
My question is: would the Mach software be a good retro fit for this problem? Does anyone here have experience changing a system like this over to the Mach software?
I would assume since the machine has the motors and readouts in place this conversion would not be too hard.
Thanks In Advance for your input!
