Hi!

First of all...thanks for all the help I already got from this forum!!
I´m kind of new at this CNC stuff. I work as a designer in the automotive industry and I use it and see it everyday...but there are other people doing the fun CNC job.
I know what magic you can do with CNC and now I want to do it by myself in my basement! =)

Hi my name is Robert. 

I'm an artist working out of Toronto, Canada.  No specific training in this area but my artistic interests have lead me here.  I build a machine about two years back.  I've used it for milling as well but the reason for building it was to incorporate it within an artwork.  This forum has been a big help in that process.

Here's a link to the final project: http://roberthengeveld.com/projects/unbridled-rien/

I'm in the process or reworking the same machine with a WIFI camera which moves through a model set.  ( which has brought me back here looking to figure out a fifth axis for pivoting the camera.)

Thanks for all the help in making these things a reality.

I'm Dan from Vancouver, WA. I just picked up a Shizouka AN-S and a friend of mine and I are in the process of retrofitting it with MACH3 and a DSMP motion controller.

I'm still gathering info on what to do before I start purchasing parts.  Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Hello all,

I am newbie when it comes to CNC but have been learning quickly over the past two years. I have a 2014 model Shopmaster Patriot VFD setup with four Axis (stepper controlled rotary table), and a Weihong NK105 controlld 4'x8" router table that I want to convert to mach3.

I am armature inventor/designer and use my mill/lathe combo along with a 3D printer to build prototypes. I use CATIA, AutoCAD, Inventor, and Corel CAD for modeling, and I use DeskProto for 3 and 4 Axis tool path generation and Mach3 version R3.043.022 for machine control. I have just ordered an Ethernet smoothstepper as well to implemented in the coming weeks. I love to learn and am always open to recommendations.

I look forward to chatting with you all,

Ed

My name's Gary, and I'm a california licensed architect. Built a John Kleinbauer cnc router/dremel cutter. Working area is about the size of a two layer pan cake, 12x15x4 inches.

Getting back into the hobby after a dozen years. Experimenting on my own time, trying to cut topographic architectural models for study purposes. Would like to eventually do 3d construction using a grout gun of some kind to make honey bee boxes, small sheds, who knows. Probably using cellulose fiber, lime, sand, clay, portland cement, industrial waste... (fly ash). I know the Chinese are already doing full size buildings.

What I'd really like to do is to do cnc from a laptop. Using a cradle that has a parallel port. I know Mach isn't recommended for use on laptops though.

Curious what the timing or power issues are with laptops, and if it is something that is really crazy or not.

Hello,

Corey here. New to CNC the world. Recent graduate with a bachelors in mechanical engineering. I foresee needing some help troubleshooting with my new Romaxx cnc mini mill. Fun stuff!
I like to design, build and make things. Typically woodworking. But my brother and I built a small forge for melting aluminum last summer. Always fun to branch out!

I am new to the board, and have a question regarding the use of Mach3 as a DRO.

I have long range plans to add control to my Harrison L5A, but for the present I would like to add DRO readout to the X and Z axis, and eventually to the tailstock and the compound. Is there a problem that I am not seeing using glass scales just as a readout without utilizing the many other functions of Mach3?

Thanks for helping
