Mach 3 and Mach 4 Profile?
« on: October 27, 2015, 10:58:50 AM »
I want to do some testing with Mach4.  I have a VMC that I use for maintenance and custom work that has Mach3.  Can I put Mach4 on this machine using the same ESS board and go between Mach3 and Mach4 freely?

I've had both working on the same machine for year and a half and that is using all 6 axis's. But just in testing Mach4 only.  Still don't have the full trust to let it loose on a big job to be able to walk away (as some of my runs last days). Runs smoother but has some hiccups at times.

Running ESS on the PMDX-126 board using 2 Servos(Slaved),  2 Nema-34 & 2 Nema-23 Steppers
