Brains, plug ins and script are all ways to enhance or expand mach3 to run on more complex machines. If you are new to cnc you likely do not need to use any of these, at least for a while.

To generate gcode to run mach3 to make a part can be done with wizards or CAM software. Some common CAM software is sheetcam, cambam, cut2d or other vectric products.

If you say what you are wanting to do then someone can likely say which way would be best to accomplish it.

i would like to connect between the z axes and the spindle to run and stop at some levels of the axes and want to add changes to the g-code and to make some actions at specified lines depending on the g0 , g1 functions in the codes
