Switching from NC Studio to Mach3 or Mach4
« on: January 04, 2020, 09:06:06 PM »

Happy New Year.

I am new to the forum. I have a 3 axis CNC Router that has NC Studio that I wan to switch to either Mach3 or Mach4. I was wondering what is a better option. I am not sure what to choose. There are mixed opinions on the internet about both of them. On one hand, Mach3 is getting outdated but somewhat reliable on the other hand, Mach4 is still not fully developed but it will have future support.

Since I will need a motion controller and a breakout board to do the switch, I am thinking about using the PoKeys57CNC. It looks like it eliminates the need for a breakout board (save some money :) :)). Is this a good route? Any other recommendations?

Thank you so much for the help, I really appreciate it!
