Hiya guys,
              Well after researching the net for a suitable CNC software to run the CNC machine I'm making I've decided to give Artsoft a go.

Okay now for a few questions ::)

 1. What is the minumum computer size to run the software ?

2. Which would be the best version to sart with ?

3. Would it be possible to get a copy of the parrallel pinouts to suit the software as I'm designing up my own circuits and want to get it right first time.

 I'm very keen to get started and hopefully I can avoid any problems But that's wishfull thinking

Cheers Bryan  :D

1. Minimum computer? It depends on the performance you need.  I would not use anything under 1.2 Mhz. For high speed (45khz) and enhanced pulsing, use a high end computer.

2. Mach version? Use Mach3, it is mature, safe, stable, tested, robust, supported, full of features, etc…

3. Pinouts:  You can assign them freely. On port one,    output pins 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,14,16,17 and input pins 10,11,12,13,15.  On port two output pins are 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,14,16,17 Or, 1,14,16,1. Input pins 10,11,12,13,15. Or 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,1. On the second port you may choose to use pins 2-9 for input, that way you can use lots of inputs. Check out my site, I think there is info that you will find useful for your setup. http://cnc4pc.com
