Question: Mach3 & Sherline Motor Controller
« on: August 01, 2009, 12:40:17 PM »
Hello all, I'm new here. I have been doing a lot of research getting my self ready to purchase the things I need for CNC milling. I want to get a Sherline CNC Mill 5410 with stepper motors and motor controller box. I was wondering if Mach3 is compatible with Sherline's motor controller?

Thanks in advance.
