MAC ANYONE!
« on: September 30, 2013, 09:45:37 PM »
Sorry to ask but......Has anyone used a MAC with parallels running XP, and USB Parallel adaptor running CNC? I have it as an emulator but haven't been able to get the motors turning.

I have very musty, humid garage and now on 2nd old XP computer >:(. I would just like to take a laptop out to the garage when needed.

USB to parallel adapters won't work on a windows machine. And I've never heard of Mach3 running on a mac, so you're probably 0 for 2 so far.

I should have said that although Mach3 will run, it probably won't be able to run a machine??
