Can Mach3 work with 2 plugins?
« on: March 18, 2012, 02:42:05 PM »
I have Mach 3, it is working with AJAX CNC and ethernet plugin. I do know if I can to use the parallel port.

The mach 3 is using AJAX PLUGIN. Can I work with another plugin? I need to use parallel plugin too.


Thanks in advance.

The parallel port driver is not a plugin so afraid you can not use it with the Ajax, its one or the other. If needing more non time sensitive I/O then maybe look at a PLC or the PoKeys.

no, because ajax has pcb tarjet for servo motor, my rotary table has stepper motor.

Easier to get a servo for the rotary axis I would think.
