New ncPod plugin available - 9th March
« on: March 08, 2007, 04:29:24 PM »

This is a link to a post Art made on the Yahoo group

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/mach1mach2cnc/message/70439

Plugin is in the download section.

The required firmware is not posted on the OEMtech site yet.  Hopefully won't be long.

Now the question (for me at least) is will dual drive homing work.  Should find out soon.  ;D

Thanks for the update. Can anyone tell us what things are different with this plugin. Any updates for homeing, jogging, or probing?

Don't know much about it yet Ryan. 

The firmware that goes with it is not posted on the OEMtech site. I have emailed Carl but no answer yet.

So even if you wanted to have a go with the new plugin it won't work without that.

Art has said that dual drive homing is not implemented so I'll have to wait.

Dual drive homing is essential on my machine.

Got a reply from Carl.

To the effect that he is waiting on the OK from Art before posting the firmware.

That was a couple of days ago. Still nothing on the website.

@appeared! .
I waited; new "ncPOD Firmware Installer for Mach3 Users (Firmware Version 2018 )"

However, "USB1.1" does not seem to be yet usable.

It seems OEM has posted the firmware 2018 on there site. I believe this is the firmware to be used with the newest NCpod plugin, version 2.00.055
