Been gone a long time......
« on: August 24, 2011, 08:46:57 PM »
I retrofit a Bridgeport Boss 5 about 8 years ago and I am still using Mach2. I was wondering if anybody can tell me how much better Mach3 is now and how hard it is to "transfer" all
of my custom macros and screens into Mach3. I never really had much trouble with Mach2 in the past, but I sure could use some direction or information that could help me
become more productive.

Please tell me what you think

B.T.W. is Art still as active in the development of the product as he was years ago?

Moving over to Mach3 will involve you manually setting your ports and pins etc, custom macros should work fine but use caution at first. Screen may or may not work but easy to test as you can install Mach3 on the same computer as Mach2 and they will cohabit happily.

Art has retired and does things that grab his interest such as Gearotic.
