Two 3 axis usb controlles
« on: September 19, 2014, 05:05:14 PM »
   Hi gys!
It is possible to use two 3 axis usb controlles like this one:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/CNC-USB-Card-3-Axis-MACH3-200KHz-Breakout-Interface-Adapter-/161086021824?&_trksid=p2056016.l4276
to build a 6 axis CNC machine?

Thank you in advance!

No, but you can use two parallel ports, or a Smoothstepper.

After the smootstepper (on port 1-3) what i have to connect - two 3 axis controllers or directly the step drivers?
