Laptop DB25 parallel port ?
« on: February 05, 2017, 02:39:38 PM »
Is there a way to get a laptop that does not have a parallel port only USB ports, to run Mach3 using the parallel port on my C10 BOB?
OK this may be a dumb question but I'm getting desperate to get some installation to work.........................

Laptops in general no recommended to run Mach3 due to the lower voltage they run and witout a paraller port no way. But I think there is warp or smoothstepper which connect to a usb but I'm not familiar with that. Google Mach3 usb

Yes, with a UC100 motion controller.

Thank Garry I thought that that would be the answer I would get. Will the UC100 work on a 64 bit PC?
