« on: January 22, 2014, 07:32:37 AM »
Hello back again i emailed and asked if the license i previously paid for would be good for 5 axis, they said it would
sooooo
back when i set up my first 3 axis machine there was a specific version, not much older, but not the newest version of mach3 that would run without bug issues

does anyone know of a specific mach i should download for the chinese 5 axis engraver im buying

also can anyone give me advice on how you would go about tuning the 4th and 5th axis motors, cause ive got no clue

thanks in advance for any and all advice

The version I use  is 057 but others say 062 is also ok.
Regards tuning, it will all depend on the hardware but basically if they are rotary axes then instead of steps per mm or inch you will use steps per degree.
