simultaneous vs index support
« on: January 28, 2010, 05:02:35 PM »
Hi folks, I was recently asked from a CAM vendor if my machine could do 5 axis simultaneous, or index.  My machine is using stepper motors, so I was thinking index, but they asked about the controller, meaning Mach3.  Can Mach3 support simultaneous, or is it just index?
