newbie and new machine
« on: February 12, 2018, 08:17:24 PM »
I just bought a new cnc lathe. It came with a cd to download. {wife} I downloaded it as it said . now i cant figure what to do newt. Looking at my instruction book it tells me to the mach 3 turn screen. Here is my question/problem. Across the top it says demo. on my instruction book it says mach3 cnc licenesed to bla bla bla. Should i have purchased something more ? Taig told me it came with mach 3  Can anyone kick me the right direction. Please    Thanks

If it says demo, then it is not a licensed copy of Mach3. You will need to purchase a license for some lathe functions to work
and be able to run program with more than 500 lines of code.

Do you really  think Taig is giving a Mach3  license away for free?
