Maxnc 5

Does anybody have a profile for this machine? 

I just picked up one as my seocnd machine, and it came with Windows 98 based control software, but because I have become familiar with Mach 3 I was thinking it might be more convenient if I could run it off Mach 3 so when I generate code files from my CAM software I know they will work pretty much the same on either machine. 

Well, that and I don't think I have any 98 machines left even on my spare shelf.  I think I have given them all away to a friend reconditions them and gives them away to school kids who's family can't afford a computer for them.

Bob,

I presume you have tried the MaxNC mode of operation within Mach - does that need a separate profile ?.

Didn't know there was a MaxNC mode.  As soon as I get a chance I will check it out.  Where do I set that mode?  

P.S.  Does it support open loop machines?

Config menu then Ports and Pins and on the first page towards the right you will see the Max NC-10 wave drive option.

Excellent.  I will try that as soon as I get it setup.
