Any progress on a demo license for the mach4 plugin? I have been using Mach3 with a DMC-1880 for a few years and have some time to play with Mach4 upgrade (demo).
I know it is not supported but I have tested contour mode with the DMC-1880 and it has worked smooth. It did conflict with my probing macros, that's why I thought it would be good to test on a fresh install of Mach4.
Thanks,
Jon

Tony,

Unfortunately, there is no demo version of the Mach 4 plugin.  I will see if I can implement that.

Nice work on that variable J head!  You managed to get rid of all the noisy parts quite nicely.  :)  i have replaced so many of those bushings i lost count.  I much prefer a pulley J head because of the noise those things will start making.  And they will get noisy pretty damned fast.  Just watch the spindle bearings and make sure they don't heat too much at those speeds!

Steve,

It has been a while since I have checked in to the forum.  I see that much progress has occurred with the Mach4 Galil plugin, but that the DMC 2143 has not been tested yet.  I am still willing to do this if you can release a demo version of the plugin.  You will understand that I am unwilling to buy the plugin until I am sure that it will work.
