Hello Everyone,
I am new to the CNC world and am researching the best software to use for a planned CNC machine in the design stages at present. Still debating on weather to purchase or build totaly from scratch. Any suggestions would be highly valued. I am experienced in many technical areas and have a fairly nicely equiped workshop. My backround is in the HVAC industry for the past 37 years but am looking into CNC milling for both metal and wood. I also intend to attempt a combination on Milling as well as Plasma cutting on this machine. Looking forward to looking at this forum. Very best Regards ZED777

At this point I'm considering a Milling machine aprox. 36 x36" bed with a removable table to convert to Plasma cutting. What I hope to achieve is a very acurrate unit made from aluminum extrusion and milled with a 1.5 KW water cooled spindle. Additionaly I want to incorporate a 4th axis.

Hi Zed,

Welcome to the forum.

You will find it is quite difficult to construct just one machine that is good for all of your requirements, but there are plenty of experienced members here who will be pleased to give their advice / opinion / support, if it is required, during or prior to your build.

For any specific questions it would be well to post as a new topic in the General section.

Is the charge pump light green on the G540 ?
There should be a green light on.

Got things moving, got my Y motors slaved and the A axis in reverse...and was having fun. Now showing software limit and won't reset....is the time on the demo limited?
