Future of MachIV?
« on: August 09, 2006, 09:15:21 AM »
Hi, is the developing of Mach IV stopped and replace with G100 plug in for Mach3?
What is the status of that plug in right now? Is it possible to run a machine based on a Grex
with homing, limit, probing and jogging and so on?

Hi I am not the devinitive sorce on all that is mach 3+ plug in but i am running it and can give a couple of answers.

Probing, no
home, limits, yes
jog, yes

it will do everything that mach 4 will do. and seems to be more stable. As far as i have heard mach 4 is not fgoing to get any more code work, everything is going to be mach3 and the g100 plug in

Thanks for your answers,
I have got the Grex for a while now, but I didn't want to rebuild my working
mill until the Grex was fully supported. Maybe it's time to make the switch. :)
