Thanks Craig for elaboration. Actually I think SLD/WD is not given on website to have visualization.

Please share some other Ethernet based motion controllers for further study.

I studied some part of Warp9 ESS on the website. I felt confused when found 3nos of DB26 ports are available on ESS board, is it possible to use them separately for controlling 3 different machines. If yes, how it is managed from software/Mach side??

Please enlighten further !!!!

Noted !!!!

I was just thinking if some makes/models can be suggested on basis of experience. This will make my life better and will be helpful. I can do the comparison stuff myself.

Please share me the details and technical data to look through and study.

I am planning to build CNC router with laser for cutting of aluminium foil foams and CR/GI sheets upto 2mm thickness.
Kindly suggest appropriately.

For laser, I would like to use Fiber laser only being OPEX effective.

I will move step by step, first priority is router table (3-axis) and then laser integration to it.

Thanks again Tweakie !!!!

Experimented per your suggestion, I checked on EStop, it is working fine.
Will be implementing X++, X-- limit switches also.

Now have got more confidence to build further developments.

Also, suggest some USB control boards which have been tested and proven.

You need the 12 to 24 Volt power connected to your breakout board before the limit switches will work.


Thanks Tweakie !!!

I will try and confirm back.

Have 1 more query, please clear my confusion:

As per my knowledge, only 5V signal input should be provided to parallel port.
Will the controller board convert 12/24V to 5V output before sending it out.

Is there any way to check it out without connecting actually to parallel port?

Hi Experts,

I am new to DIY CNC and need help on below:

Current Achievements:

1. have started with 1-axis slide to learn and prove the basic working concept.
2. Using parallel port controller through Mach3 in Windows XP, lead shine DM542 drive and 10kgf motor.
3. Able to control the X axis through pulse and direction for my stepper motor, is working fine.


1. Not able to control the limit switches, tried both NC and NO options, connected directly to the controller board.
2. Can limit switches be connected directly or need to use 5V supply with limiting resisters to make it work.
3. Some pictures attached for reference.

Please support me with open-heart.
