Micro PC with UC100 to run mach3 with 8.9 inch touch screen
« on: January 19, 2016, 12:38:43 AM »
I have been hunting for a small cheap pc to run mach3 off of.
I love this little guy.  The PIPO x9

Looks good and think it should work fine. I have been using Via Pico mobos on the big lathe and the beaver mill for a few years now and never an issue. The CPU on them is 1Gig and Ram is also 1 Gig. Both machines have SmoothSteppers.

its been running gcode in the air since yesterday.  X and Y zero back to my gauge.  looks like a great cheap simple controller option.

Hi fixittt, just wondering how is the Pipo9x going with Mach3 and your machine?, I may be interested in changing over too.

have not run some serious code with it yet.  Sucks I know.....  But I did use it to make a test video for some screen set changes I made for a 10 tool ATC air collet system.  Used the PIPO for the test so I could get it in the video and the machine at the same time.
