I am with the other guys Re: keeping the Fanuc motors and drives.
They built them to last, the motors will last for ever.
I have just put Mach 3 on a Hurco mill with Fanuc 0 motors and drives and am using the dspmc unit.
I am still having a few teething problems trying to integrate between the two, and the PID tuning is crazy but I will get it.

Last weekend I have successfully put the machine to jog with all the origin hardware (fanuc). Machine moving at 40m/min is something to see.
I have a lot to learn with this controller, but I will eventually get into it.

It's good to look at other controls and see how they compare to Mach! It all helps to improve  Mach

Until now, it appears quite difficult, since I could one jog the machine and zero it.
I am unable to do all the basic stuff (to much MACH). I am trying to input simple moves on MDI mode so that the machine can move, and I could not.
I have made a thread on CNC zone (in this forum I belive it is not the right place), asking for help, lets see.

2 Pictures attached. One, the current machine, the other as I received it.

Thanks
