General Mach Discussion / usb to printer port
« on: July 17, 2017, 09:00:43 PM »
so I have a  win7 with 32bit computer with just usb outputs, no printer ports. Can I use a usb to printer port cable to get a working system?
I know there are devices like smooth stepper or ucc that can be used for a 64bit, but I want to use a virgin system.

General Mach Discussion / want to go to laptop
« on: July 15, 2014, 11:36:36 AM »
I am relatively new to cnc building although I have followed this site for some time.  I have put together a small machine(15" x  15" x 4") using  Mach3 with a desktop pc with limited success. It's a learning project.
I have recently upgraded the cpu to 64 bit and added more ram. I wanted to use software that support this. Come to find out Mach3 does not work for 64 bit.

I may have to get a 32 bit machine.

I would like to replace the desktop with a laptop mainly to make the work area more compact; is there a how-to document, tutorial, youtube  video , etc  somewhere that explains things?

      . how to connect parallel port to usb?
      . need 5v?
      . turn off power saving feature?
      . probably a few more........

  ..... thanks   joe

P.s.    I tried to post this on cnczone, but have log-on issues
