Does Mach support multiple MPGs for multiple axis?
« on: February 26, 2007, 01:13:04 PM »
Idea would be to use USB or Grex connected MPGs for each axis (or at least x-y) placed on the machine in ergonomically intuitive places. It looks like the setup allows 3 MPGs, but I don't see how to assign a particular one to a paritcular axis.

You now  have me wondering as well, when I first got a MPG I got two  as I was going to set one up for X and Y then decided it was easier to make buttons to swap one MPG between the three axis. Never looked into setting up more than one but now that you have mentioned it there doesnt seem to be a way to assign the axis to the MPG.
