Is it possible to run Mach3 from a USB port?
« on: October 02, 2011, 10:52:40 PM »
Is it possible to run mach3 from a USB port? It's getting harder to find computers with DB25 connectors.
Thanks,

It sure is Jim but you need to use an external motion card such as the Smooth Stepper  http://warp9td.com/
There are others which do the same job (+/- certain functions).
