processor speed
« on: November 11, 2009, 04:29:27 PM »
Hi Guys,
Has anyone had any luck running Mach3, on a 300mhz processor?
I would like to control one axis at a time, no coordinated axis movements.

Thanks in Advance

probably best to use Mach2 if you are wanting to try to  run on such a slow computer.

Just try it and see how it works.  I ran for a year on a 544MHz machine with no problems.  I ran my X2 for a while on a 166MHz PC, and never had a problem.

I can run it on a 400MHZ laptop with no trouble. Just don't click on something.....slow as heck!
