Hi Alex,

If you use a breakout board this enables a parallel LPT cable to be used from your PC. Then connect the breakout board pins to your CNC controller in accordance with the step and direction assignments you have set within Mach.

Hi Alex,

You can use any of the output pins you choose. The setup I have chosen is:-

Pin2 - Xstep
Pin3 - Xdirection
Pin4 - Ystep
Pin5 - Ydirection
Pin6 - Zstep
Pin7 - Zdirection

Does this help ?
