MACH3 or 4 USB setup Question
« on: October 11, 2015, 12:48:12 AM »
This has to be a popular question, but I have been unable to find anything on it.

I have a Spark Concepts CNC XPro controller which I want to hook up to Mach 3 or 4.

How do I do that?

The CNC XPro has been designed for GRBL and as it stands will not operate with Mach3 or Mach4.

That explains  everything.

Do you have any recommendations for a controller that would be suitable for an OX CNC (OpenBuilds) cnc router that would work with Mach4?

Thanks for the quick reply.
